Dotted notes

When I have dotted quarter notes that start in the middle of a beat, I can input them manually just fine, but when I copy paste from one measure to another, they all get changed to an eighth note tied to a quarter note (as in the pictures). While this does play the same, it looks a lot messier. Is there any way to stop this? Thanks.

    Hello, Yes, we know this a bit annoying. We are looking at ways of solving this, but for now you have to change all them manually. You can use the rhythm drop down menu though!

    Although this might not be what you're after, it might help someone to know that you can now insert hidden time signature changes. And since the default beaming is based on the time signature, you can insert a temporary 3+3+2/8 time signature to get the desired beaming. This is a bit convoluted, and will affect all voices, but it might still be good to know :-)


    Hope this helps!
