I’m wondering why Dorico doesn’t let me indicate a metronome mark with a meno mosso (or più mosso). To me, the words “meno mosso” seem too relative. They imply a slow down of the tempo but not how much. I have the habit of specifying the new tempo with a metronome mark in parentheses next to the text but Dorico doesn’t let me do that. Is there any musical reason why a meno mosso shouldn’t be accompanied by a metronome mark or is just that Dorico can’t do that at this moment?
Of course, I can simply put a metronome mark next to the meno mosso and adjust the position of both in Engrave mode but knowing how the program works, it doesn’t look like the logical solution. Or is there a way to achieve this?
