Dorico becomes better and better. Thank you very much, Dorico team, for the excellent additions in version 3.5! The figured bass feature is just magic. That’s what I love so much about this program: When a feature is ready for release, wow! I have no words for it.
In the past I have ranted about two little things: The first is the Dvořák humoresque problem with the beaming pattern. This is solved now. Thank you!
The second is when you try to write the Goldberg variations or Mozart piano sonata B major KV 570 second movement. Clef changes and double repeat barlines. I know the very short passage in Elaine Gould’s book showing just one exemple with a clef, a key and a measure change – sandwiched between the barlines.
For key and measure changes this makes sense to me (there are different opinions), but a clef is a different thing because it does not change the music at all. Only it’s position on the stave. In an earlier post I have given examples.
My question is: I still see no options to change this behaviour. Have I overlooked something? My workaround is to place the clef to the second note and move it in engrave mode. Then adjust the first note. This destroys the playback, but that’s not the problem for me.
As I have just heard in one of the videos, there are “as many notation conventions as there are stars in the sky”. I think: If it’s intended that the houses like Bärenreiter, Henle, Peters, Breitkopf etc. one day switch to Dorico, there should be options for the clef placement to the right or to the left of a double repeat barline.
I say this because the program in it’s basics is so much near perfect, but this little detail is still missing.
