Hi! Brand new user here. Switching from Finale, being very enthousiastic.
HOWEVER. I ran into some bugs. There are three ways to go from tutti to solo with strings and v.v. (create your own ‘playing technique’, just add text or via ‘divisi’) but none of those seem to get the playback right. Wanting a proper playback, I tried a workaround via “change instrument” (mid stave). Now this works great for flute/piccolo, but voor group violins/solo violin I ran in a lot of trouble visually (although playback is fine!).
First look at above screenshot! Wow. Just wow.
Furthermore I can get, in some cases, get one or two notes correctly to alter from tutti to solo and v.v.:
However, once I do more than one bar, or take some different notes (it seems to be quite random which notes are allowed and which are not), it won’t do the instrument change and just shows two separate staves:
If I do exactly the same with flute/piccolo (copy pasted the notes, same actions), everything seems to be alright.
The big differences of course being:
- Having a group instrument (violins) and a solo instrument (solo violin) within one “player” (made a solo player and put a violin in there and then moved it to Violins I)
- The violin I having a brother Violin II
So my question is basically:
- How do I report this?
- Do I just wait until solo/tutti is properly supported in Dorico, including proper playback? Or does anyone has another good workaround? (I googled for hours!). (I don’t need them at the same time, tutti and solo always alternate.)
I added the project with the errors, it is a very simple orchestra score with just a few bars to try it out.
