l.v. tie (from a note to nothing)

Post by dfroom » Sat Nov 26, 2016 12:38 am

Is there a way to have a tie come from a note and go to nothing, as to indicated l.v. in piano or percussion?

Not yet, I'm afraid. Possibly the easiest way to do this for now would be to enter a tie-like marking in text with Shift+X, e.g. you could use one of the elision slurs shown here.

I'm having a hard time getting the hang of unicode (works sometimes for me, sometimes not). So the easier solution was a slur on the two previous notes, then moved over and reshaped.

Thanks,

What system are you using? I'm on a Mac and use PopChar (also available for Windows) to browse fonts. This now works in the 1.0.10 update if you make a paragraph style which uses the Bravura font. For example, I've made a paragraph style using Bravura called Ornaments for entering ornaments which Dorico hasn't yet implemented. I double click a note, press Shift-X, choose Ornaments, go to Bravura in PopChar (which stays selected for the next time) and find the necessary glyph and click it. Dorico places it on the note in the score. Once you get the hang of it, it's quicker and more consistent than tweaking ties.

Thank you for suggesting this method, Vaughan! I keep forgetting about PopChar when I'm not entering text, but your suggestion reminds me to consider it for a much wider range of situations. Thanks!

I like to thank David for the supplied link - I did not know yet about it!
And Vaughan for mentioning PopChar, I always used to use the character map of Windows, which is a pain in the a..

I'm wondering if we have l.v. tie functionality yet.
By googling, I thought this would be the most relevant place to ask.
For now, I'm going to use the method Daniel suggests here. But is there a way to flip the text for down stemmed notes?
Thanks!

Unfortunately there's no way to rotate or flip text in Dorico at the moment. The Fingering range in SMuFL defines slur-like symbols that curve both up and down, so perhaps you can use one of those?
