@pianoleo I understand but Dorico is doing many things different to Sibelius, in the hopes of improving the whole experience, right? If Dorico could implement something that could be helpful to some, would you be open to throwing some thoughts at how that may be implemented? You have a loooot of experience, surely you have a lot to add? I’ve read how Sibelius did pitch before duration and Daniel asked everyone to just trust them and try it the Dorico way. Maybe it could be the same here? Maybe not. But anyway,
When I’m entering 12 choruses of a jazz transcription for example, there are articulations that occur sporadically, accents, staccatos etc. My biggest problem as I stated earlier is simply remembering what I was up to (as far as “ok, eighth note, it’s staccato, and a triplet, enter pitch, ok next note, now what do I have to cancel…aah yes, the triplet, change to quarter note, did I turn staccato off?? aaaaah!!! etc” I feel it just slows things down. Sure, I’m starting out, and I will get faster, but it does leave my brain a bit sore after a couple of hundred bars. If there was a way to hit an articulation and it to turn off after the next note entry, that would go a long way to help alleviate how much I needed to keep in my head at any one time. Right?
There could always be an option to disable non stickiness?
@Rob Good point about typing. I’m not sure about the technicalities, it was just an idea of how to get speed entry happening really fast.
Does anyone else have any ideas? Or do I just let this one go?
