Dynamics misalingned

Post by Thomas Eberth » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:27 pm

How can I get the decrescendo and the mf in the attached sample vertically aligned by default?
I entered it by selecting the upper voice and then inputting "> mf" in the dynamics popover.

Group them: Select both the decrescendo and the mf, then right-click and choose Group Dynamics from the Dynamics sub-menu.

Try this then:
1. Save and close the file, and then open it again to see if the screen redraws.
2. Ungroup them and then regroup them.

I added the Dorico file. So you can have a look at it.

Something must be wrong in your engraving options. If I use your file, I get your result no matter what I do, however, If I copy and paste on another new file, then it aligns perfectly. In your case, if you can't find it, you may have to reset to factory default if you can find the particular setting that was modified, especially if you have used the "make default" command. A good way to find out is to copy the excerpt on a new organ template. If you get the same result, the modification has obviously been made into a default.

Reducing the setting for the space between the staff and the crescendo in the vertical spacing options to 1 did align the cresc. and the mf.
