Coming soon, hopefully in the next update, will be more features to help manage voices in these kinds of situations.
The direction of the stems is only tip of the iceberg!

I put in the SATB choir first, then I just copied the music int the two-stave system. Note the three different Layouts, dividing the Players appropriately.
Is this what you meant?

Daniel at Steinberg wrote:If you're trying to copy and paste into the two staves of the piano, try copying and pasting one staff at a time: Dorico copies and pastes by instrument, rather than by staff, so if you copy music from e.g. separate soprano and alto instruments and paste them to the piano, you'll find that the soprano music goes into the right hand staff of the piano, but the alto music goes into the instrument below the piano (if there is one). To paste e.g. the alto music into the left-hand staff of the piano, make a selection that contains only that single staff, and then paste it onto the left-hand staff directly.
Daniel at Steinberg wrote:What you can do is select one of the notes in the alto staff, right-click, and choose Voices > Default Stems Down. This will take the existing music for alto and make it use a stem-down voice, which won't affect the notation on the individual staff provided there's only one voice there. Then you can select and copy that to the RH piano staff, and it should coexist with the music you've already copied from the soprano staff, which will be in a stems-up voice. Repeat the same trick with the basses to copy and paste their music onto the LH staff along with the tenor music.
