Displacement of dotted notes

• Jun 8, 2024 - 10:48

When engraving polyphonic music that has dotted notes, MuseScore seems to default in weird displacement of the dotted notes presumably due to worries about the dot colliding with the adjacent notehead. Notes without dots are displaced as expected.

Is it possible to manually displace the notes "the other way around" (stems lining up)? This seems to be how most of the music is engraved.


A gnarly problem. MuseScore 4's behaviour matches what some style guides prescribe (it is not a "regression"), though not all, and it is not even always desired. We intent to make this controllable in 4.4; for now, manually offsetting notes is your best bet (though tedious).
