Hi Dorico friends! I’m working on a big (30-minute) orchestra piece right now and am only about halfway done but the program is already working quite slowly for certain things. What are the best practices to prevent this?
Are there any settings I should have on or off?
I’ve already discovered that having condensing on really slows things down, so I have that off.
Does Galley view affect speed? Should I avoid using it? What about having multiple tabs for different score/part layouts open?
The lag is particularly long in going from Write mode to Engrave mode. I try to batch my “writing” and “engraving” tasks together as much as possible, but I still often have to go back and forth just to make things baseline legible as I write.
I did see a suggestion somewhere on here to split the flows up into multiple files until the end of the process and then import them into one file at the end. But that seems to mess up some of the formatting I’ve done.
