I see that I have been awarded an “Anniversary” badge, for no apparent reason other than I have been trying (mostly unsuccesfully) to get Dorico to work. I am nowhere near writing music with this software, and the problems so often mentioned in the Forum only makes me realise how difficult (maybe impossible) it is for me to get any useful, logical, and helpful information from this software. The forum is taking much of the flak for no user guide for new users, and different approaches to getting far in music writing on the basis of info available at the beginning of getting used to Dorico.
Perhaps I should go somwhere else to try to get my musical ideas - I am so disappointed in the many issues that seem to be part of this comprehensive but opaque software. Have I wasted my time and money ? I am not able to answer this yet, but the omens are not good.
