ME AGAIN…sorry…but I’m honoured to help improve Dorico.
Daniel, this is something that puzzled me even from Sibelius.
When one enters a piece’s info (Tite, Composer, Arranger, Lyrics, Copyright etc)…all the information is added to the score EXCEPT the ARRANGER…
WHY don’t you include the “Arranger” info right beneath the Composer? This IS standard practice.
I wonder…is there a way you wonderful guys could allow Dorico to STORE and ADD info that is added to a new project automatically?
After YEARS of creating scores in Finale and Sibelius, I cannot tell you the number of times I have to open a text file, copy and paste that Copyright clause, add arranger and Publisher info etc.
I’m actually amazed that this thought did not strike someone at AVID and now even Steinberg. Those bits of info is possibly always the same.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEEEAAASSSEEE…save the Copyright textbox and allow the arranger label to be added to the score just the same as the Composer.
BY THE WAY…I LOVE DORICO. You guys did an amazing job so far. What an amazing idea how to create a pickup bar for example just like so many other functions. Don’t worry too much about bad critisism. I code in VB (I’m not nearly you guys’ level), BUT I can see what incredible amount of work went into Dorico so far. Goodness…the easy thing is creating the interface GUI/forms and dialogues…but all those exception trappings, procedures, the MIDI database, tapping into the audio engine, algorithms that are constructed from engraving rules from books and professors that make Dorico choose engraving options for the user…and so I can carry on! It is almost the same as creating an Operating System. So, at least from MY side, I recognise (from a programmer’s perspective) the amount of work, discussions (probably arguments), sleep deprivation and endless testing of code, properties, variables, API calls etc. Dorico, Daniel, is going to be your, your team and all those at Steinberg’s LEGACY! So BASTA to BAD Criticism…only GOOD Criticism is constructive. VIVA DORICO!
