- To quickly input a passage of dotted rhythms, input the music using straight rhythms. This can be quicker than having to constantly change the note duration.
- Select the passage that you want to be dotted.
- Tap the dotted notes button. Dorico will automatically dot every second note, resulting in a dotted rhythmic passage.
- This also works for double dotted notes and so on.
Thanks a lot for this. This has been a real timesaver. However:
It doesn’t seem to work with dotted rhythms in tuplets (for example like in this piece: https://imslp.org/wiki/Grand_Fantaisie-Caprice%2C_Op.21_(Litolff%2C_Henry_Charles) ). The second note in a triplet is a tied 16th.
A, it’s definitely a bug: it only occurs when the Chord or Insert tool are selected. Works properly without these activated.
You forgot to mention that you can un-dot them by turning on Insert mode and pressing the duration.
True – if they are all the same duration
