Does anyone know how to input “dotted quarter = 58” in 6/8 time?
Shift-T, then type 6.=58 then hit Enter.
Or see page 605 of the extensive manual: https://blog.dorico.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/dorico_en_1.2_22_12_17.pdf#page605
I was wondering why you did not give the “rtfm” information
Searching the manual takes a couple of minutes on an iPhone, and I don’t like to direct people to it unless I know that the information’s there
And, how to find it. I have been looking for information on Text -inputting, editing, and so forth. I know much of it, and was looking for an answer - the word text is not in the Index, and you have to know where in the TOC, and its sub-headings to find it. So, I can imagine the OP’s dilemma… For now the rtfm response is not always possible - just like stff (search the forum first) doesn’t always reap fruitful answers. Thanks to all of you who do take the time to give thoughtful and helpful responses - we all benefit from your knowledge and patience. May you continue to have both!
Dear R Pearl,
The folks here are really nice folks that we shall meet and work with, actually. That is why I believe the mood is so nice in this forum — even if I read here and there some people complaining about the “tone” of some answers… I’m almost certain that this tone was not intended to be rude So yes, being helpful is the rule. I had this “private joke” with Pianoleo because, when the first manual came out, we were wondering whether this “rtfm” could become a real answer !
Oh, no, was aiming at helpful. I do try to steer people towards the manual, because it really is full of very useful information; as is this forum.
Marc and I did have a quiet joke when the manual was finally released, with the betting being that ALL of my responses would become “rtfm” within a few weeks, but “rtfm” isn’t always helpful - with Play mode the information just isn’t there, and areas of Engraving mode are not as fully fleshed-out in the manual as I’d ideally like.
so it’s currently more a “rtfmafaiadau” - reat the f*ing manual as far as it’s already done and useful
