Big News wednesday 👍

Daniel has stated on the forum that this is the largest release since Dorico 1.

It could contain Mozart’s reanimated corpse, and I’m sure someone will find something to be disappointed about.

Yes, that does seem to be becoming prevalent, ‘Dorico does everything brilliantly, apart from the one thing that I and 2 of my friends need it to do, so therefore it’s a terrible program…’

I’ve been using Dorico in anger for just over 3 years now after many years of shouting at Sibelius and there are still many times where Dorico makes me smile at how simple something is to achieve. I can’t remember a single occasion where Sibelius made me smile… That, for me is more than enough. Especially since Dorico is only (oh so nearly, and I’m way more excited than a 48 yr old should be…) at v.4…

“A corpse”? You men they couldn’t reanimate him?! I’m disgruntled already! :confounded:
:laughing:

I hate you.

Just kidding… :joy:

And with good reason. But considering how beneficent @dspreadbury has been to us, it would be very underhanded of me to reveal secrets publicly and spoil the surprise.

The good thing is that even those people who have seen the high-level feature list that we provided as part of the sales materials for our reseller partners still have plenty of (admittedly smaller) surprises in store.

What I wanted to say is that I actually loved you for not spoiling,… :sunglasses: :+1:

I prefer my Mozart composing over decomposing.

Yes, thanks for not spoiling. I saw something posted on another forum and skipped over it. I like the surprise and very much looking forward to seeing it unfold the way Team Dorico prefers.

Please PM me with the link to the information you saw on another forum.

Admittedly, Sibelius’s old manual made me smile from time to time…

Daniel’s Sibelius 2 manual was a thing of beauty - funny, well organized, and really informative!

IKR. I’m just starting to use Dorico and I’ll think to myself I should just be able to do with just a press of a button, I’ll look it up on the Internet and it will be like woohoo, it’s easier than I thought.

I’m switching from Finale, I tried Sibelius and I could never get the page to look how I wanted it without too much work. The workflow for composition is better in Sibelius but it never looks anthing like I want it to. The Engrave vs. Write modes are the best part for me.

Agreed. I still have it. It’s what made me try it out.

Yes I remember the earlier incantations of the manual being pretty good - i remember having a paper one too!

I have to keep reminding myself that Sibelius was actually pretty ace in it’s time.
