After some helpful input from that other thread
I finally found a comfortable way to handle
dynamics input. I must say, this works much
better and easier than anything seen so far in
other programs :D
Here we go:
* Place hairpins and dynamics text as needed
* Press <Ctrl>+<a> to select the whole track
* Press [OK] in "Adjust -> Notes -> Interpret"
The last step - pressing "OK" explicitly - seems
to be the most important part. I had not a single
error or mess up the whole evening while working
through a piece with three voices/tracks.
To control the changes when I did so, I opened
the "View -> Show Velocity Ruler" of the given
track. You should do so and watch out what
happens to the amplitudes when you press the
[OK] button in the interpreter dialog.
