Workaround for proper Note layering

Dear Forum,

Dorico3 automatically displaces notes that are layered with multiple voices. s. Attachment
How to workaround that?


Select the note and, in the properties panel in Engrave mode, set the voice column index to 0.

You may also need to flip some stems, using F.

My guess is that you have probably got those voices the “wrong” way around, and have been flipping stems etc. in an effort to get things looking right. I suggest you select the passage and do Edit > Stems > Remove Forced Stems, then do Edit > Voice > Swap Voice Contents. I think you’ll find that looks more like what you’re expecting.

Showing voice colors may also help you keep track of the various voices that need swapping.
