Accidental over a note?

Post by harmonica » Tue Jun 06, 2017 4:04 pm

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere - I couldn't find it on a search.

I need to move just one accidental so it sits over a note, musica ficta style. Is this doable - and if so how?

Not as such, but it's easy to hide the accidentals in the properties panel and add that one accidental as text above the note... see this thread for how to do it: viewtopic.php?f=246&t=118276#p642829 but use this link to get to accidentals rather than the metronome marks: ... 2-edo.html

Hopefully this could find its way into being officially supported and available through the Properties panel someday…

I too would find this very useful.

I would also like to see this incorporated. It is the standard convention for adding "musica ficta" in modern editions of old music. This feature is essential if Dorico is going to be successful for professional music editors
