Position of dot on dotted notes
While editing a routine score with SA and TB staves, with stem up for Soprano and stem down for Alto, and these parts sometimes singing notes of different duration, I thought I had entered something incorrectly. Please see the capture of two SA+TB measures, with the SA measure of concern highlighted with a box.
I simply had never noticed until now that MuseScore places the dot below note head center when the stem is up and above the note head center when the stem is down, to place the dot between lines. So, in this case it looked like only one of the notes was dotted. In the original paper score I was transcribing, and checking several other paper scores, I couldn't find any case where the dot position relative to the note head is dependent on stem direction.
Is this a questionable design choice in MuseScore, or am I just missing some option where I can require dots to be consistent regardless of stem direction?
