Hello Dorico Team–
I’m very much looking forward to the ‘Autumn’ update. I have two requests I’d like to put on your radar for future inclusion:
1.) Slurs that behave similar to ties. Ties are most beautifully executed. In many of my reference scores, old engravers treated slurs in an identical manner when it was between two notes (as opposed to a whole melodic line). I would love the option to have slurs link to noteheads in chords similar to ties, rather than the stem behavior currently employed. As it is right now, slurring chords is very cumbersome since every slur needs to be adjusted. If the slurs would behave similar to ties and tuck neatly in between the chords that would be most fantastic (referencing keyboard music here). The top is the reference, the bottom is dorico default.
2.) dotted notes: dot shift for chords. I have an interesting example where an organ score requires two long-value inner notes surrounded by two outer voices. I cannot get the chords to tuck properly (even using voice column index) because the dots are sifted down rather than up. An option to click on the two notes and select the dots to shift up, rather than down, would solve the problem.
As always, thank you for your excellent work!
