I was working on a score in Dorico 2 today and have to admit, I was a bit careless in terms of saving regularly.
But that’s how it goes, when ideas are coming up and wait to be notated … So I didn’t save for almost 2 hours and all of a sudden I got an alert, that my e-license has to be updated, because: … “this engine and that something” couldn’t read the license anymore. So I tried to save my work, but I couldn’t because there were tons of alerts blinking up and Dorico froze completely. Because of all those alerts, I couldn’t even make a decent screenshot. I had to force quit and lost all my work. That’s why I’m pretty upset.
My request to the team is, that the program shouldn’t under any circumstances be allowed to ask for license updates, while running!
It’s OK for me if Dorico is checking the license on start up or even after saving a score, but NEVER out of the blue, with no warning and ability to save the work beforehand!
Please excuse my harsh tone, but this was just too much
