I am struggling to understand the way Dorico manages dynamics signs. Maybe things have been already explained somewhere, but let me show you a very simple situation, when even a series of “problems” happen. I know that dynamics are being linked when copying them to another staves. I know I can disable it. But… Can anyone after watching the attached video explain, what’s going on there, please?
Why inserting new dynamic sign links it to the dynamics sign placed before? Why does Dorico make changes to the staves with linked dynamics but no music (or other music) in them?
Why copying and pasting the bars didn’t link the dynamics neither across staves nor with the preceding one?
What’s going on when I am trying to change the diminuendo to end with piano?
Dorico behaves more or less logically and intuitively in general, but this kind of mystery often drives me crazy, because it is extremely slowing down when I can’t understand (and often neither predict) what’s happening when inserting dynamics.
I can’t attach and/or embed the video in the post nor insert link (what?), so here it is:
