Changing instrument names


I don’t think this has been requested before. I would like to be able to change the name of an instrument, whose progressive number has been automatically added.

For example, I’m trying to create a “Violin 1” and a “Violin 1 perf” players and instruments. When creating the second player, Dorico automatically names it as “Violin 2”. I can change it.

What I can’t change, it seems, is the name of the instrument. I could change the “Violin” part, but not the progressive number and what follows it.

How can I do?


Ok, found. I edit the instrument name, by calling it “Violin 1 perf”. This automatically removed the progressive number from Violin 1.

Dorico is smarter than I am…
