Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Thanks teacue for showing this. It looks as if Dorico has thought it out well. Not having tried the program I couldn't tell if it works better than Finale or not, but it looks promising.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

Can you change the settings for the curves and slopes of slurs too in Dorico?

A very interesting comment, Vaughan! As for Sokolov knowing about this, I'm not sure, so I'll place no bets there.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

I agree on both your points, John. My examples were, as you guessed, defaults with different settings - in fact they were meant to illustrate these settings only.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

And the result is, well, in any case not overly pedantic.

Re: Two-note stem-side slurs and Elaine Gould

I too am rather sceptical to Gould's recommendations, so I did some experimenting with the settings for the slurs placement: Slurs positioning 1.PNG In this example the settings for the vertical start and end points are: Smart Shape placement above.PNG Smart Shape placement under.PNG - and of course...
