After importing via XML, I get brackets on all tuplets, regardless of settings in the program which made the XML or the settings in Dorico which govern XML import or even the tuplet bracket settings in Engraving Options. I’ve tried selecting Reset Appearance and changing the tuplet Engraving Options, to no avail. I know I can filter for tuplets and turn off the brackets, but this also removes the brackets that I do need, i.e. on values longer than eighths or when there are rests in the tuplets.
I’m also unable to change the tuplet number font. I assume that this is supposed to happen in Engrave/Font Styles…/Tuplet Plain Font. Changing this doesn’t alter the tuplet numbers. Am I doing something wrong?
On a different topic: how do I alter secondary beaming globally? I’d like to have secondary beams break to the rhythmic value but I can only find a way to reset all beaming, which alters other beaming I need to keep as is. Also, there seems to be a strange anomaly in Dorico’s secondary beam breaks. The beam of group of 8 32nds gets broken to the 8th (correctly), but if the first note is a rest, Dorico breaks the beam to the 16th. This shouldn’t happen and I can’t find a way of changing it. In addition, the secondary beam of a group of 32nd triplets gets broken to the 8th and not to the 16th. This isn’t really correct, either, but I can’t find a way to change it.
Last problem: on my laptop, I can’t select the Bar Number Font popup from the Edit Font Styles menu. The contextual menu jumps around, making it impossible to select.
