I am just switching from Finale to Dorico, and these several questions I haven’t found an answer by researching. Please be so kind to let me know if I missed anything or you know what the solution is.
In a symphonic score, there are 4 horns. Each two share a staff. Is it possible to make the staff name look like in the picture?
I know it is not that necessary, I love the efficiency of the staff name style, since you don’t have to spell the instrument name repeatedly.
In the same piece, in one system, I have all horns play unison, in which case I want four horns to share the first staff and hide the second staff. How do I apply a temporary change of staff name for only one system (without affecting the other systems in the flow) like below?
In string section, I have occasional solo instruments and divisi that need additional staffs. How could I insert staffs in the middle of a flow and only for several specific systems? (that means, when solo and divisi end, I only need one for section)
More advanced question, is it possible to add a staff in the middle of a system just like in the picture?
Once we have done all of above, how do we make parts that including these passages.
Thanks for help. I assume since these are very basic stuff for contemporary orchestral compositions, perhaps they can be more easily achieved in Dorico which seem to have the newest technology.
