Tuplet Numbers Offset Bug

When editing tuplet numbers in engrave mode, they jump slightly to the right. Dragging them back horizontally doesn’t work, but editing the X offset does. Not a huge deal but just tedious.

This isn’t a bug, though I certainly understand why it looks like one. When you set an offset for the position of the tuplet number, the number snaps back to its default position as if ‘Horizontal position of tuplet ratio’ were set to ‘Position at rhythmic centre’ rather than ‘Position at optical centre’. In general Dorico is not able to work out the current effective value of the X and Y offset properties when you first activate them, though this is something we would like to extend in future versions.

Thanks for the explanation! It’s not often I’m adjusting the tuplet numbers but it’s still good to hear this is something you’re aware of.
