Bug: changing color of rests does not include dot

Postby darknotezero » Sun Apr 16, 2017 7:06 pm

Hi there,

I have a staff for which i'm trying to make rests invisible as it's more of a 'graphic notation' staff. I've followed the suggestion of https://japan.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=105496&p=579280 and made the opacity of my rests set to 0% and discovered that in any dotted rest, the dot does not follow the opacity of the rest itself. I can't seem to make that dotted rest go away since Dorico automatically corrects, say, three eighth note rests to mean the same thing as a dotted quarter at the end of the 12/8 bar.

Attached is an image exemplifying the issue.

If you open Notation Options (command-shift N on mac), and select Rests from the pull-down menu, there is an option to disallow dotted rests. Does that work for you?

It's a workaround for the time being; in the future it may be possible to have a more robust Hide option, instead of turning opacity to zero.

Force Duration (shortcut O) will make Dorico accept i.e. three eighth-note rests, if you input them manually (with the input rest button activated). You cold also try Edit - Remove Rests to rid of the rests without the color-opacity show - although this might shorten the total length of the bar, which you might not want.

Can you not use the Edit > Remove Rests command to remove the rests on this staff instead of changing their colour?

Still, the dots ought to change color when you change the note or rest.
