preference the top voice?

Post by CelloG » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:07 am

Hi,

In measure 6 of the attatched screenshot, I'd like the A to be first, especially because it has a natural symbol. There doesn't seem to be a way to force this, either with a setup option or in engraving. I'm new to Dorico, so am I just missing the key switch to make this possible or is it not yet possible to make this switch?

Thanks,
Greg

found the answer to my own question in this video:

Had to move both notes and also move the accidental. Now I have this, yay!

In case anybody else comes looking for the answer, the answer is to select both notes, right-click and choose Voice > Swap Voice Order from the context menu (you can also find this in the Edit menu).

Oh man that is much nicer! Thanks. Once I've done this, can I select the thing I did, and copy/paste to other layouts?

Unfortunately these sorts of edits are layout-specific, and you'll need to make the corresponding edit in other layouts.
