Last post by David Palmquist - I think the easiest thing is to right justify the dyanamic marking. The hairpin will meet it but not overwrite it. Alternatively, if the crescendo or decrescendo is for a group of short notes, put the dynamic at the first one, and have the hairpin start on the second one. This won't work for notes greater than, say, half a beat, but for 8ths and 16ths, it will look ok and the delay in starting the dynamic won't offend the listener.
If the hairpin collides with notes or note stems but you don't want to move the preceding dyamic marking up or down, copy the preceding dynamic to just before the hairpin, make it Visibility=Never, and move this now-invisible new dynamic up or down.

I think Rick said "it's a bit louder than FF" many, many years ago, so it should not be too recent a change. N.B. Of course, we are discussing about "goat's wool", as we say in Italy. That is, "negligible things"!
Well, almost: 110. Normally fff is 127 and ff is 108, so it's a bit more than ff. (Yes, I'm picky... sorry )
Hi mate, actually, if you create a new score with no template (IE <Blank Score>), the default volume on the only staff is 127. If you add additional staves, no matter which template you use, they will default to a volume of 127. Velocity levels that represent dynamics also have defaults unless overridden by the itree. E,G, ff is 108, fff is 127, ppp is 10 etc. If you do not assign a dynamic it will default to fff which defaults to a velocity of 127
Soo, defaults are Volume 127, Velocity also 127* ('cos fff) * Unless you've edited your itree, but even then I don't think that would apply until you assign an instrument...
