Re: Double-dotted half note in 7/8

While the double-dotted note may be useful for the reason mentioned by John, it only works for 7/x measures, not for 5/x ones. The following is an attempt to fill out that gap in traditional rhythmic notation: x-dots.JPG "x-ing" a note adds a quarter of its value, x being half a dot. (We might be g...

Re: Ties after system break

Does it help if you make Document Option/Notes and Rests/Spacing before music amount larger? (Obviously you still have to tweak some tie directions with special tools).

Re: Violin Family - String Numbering

Usually string numbers are in Roman numerals (lowest=IV, highest=I). These now look quite like fingering numbers. You could also put a zero (0) on the last note as it is an open string.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Couple comments from ex-bassonist (also a music copyist): The part looks very nice. Somehow it seems like all the dynamics are little too much to the right? And if you want to be nice to the players, you should number the repeated bars (like 16-25). Better yet, change the layout to be more in one wi...

Re: Meaning of a big slash through a note's stem and beam (contemporary works)
