If I have two flows A & B such that…
- the same players are active in both,
- the time signature at the end of A is the same as at the beginning of B,
- and the key signature at the end of A is the same as at the beginning of B,
…then is it possible to create a layout in which the transition from A to B is simply a barline or system break, and the written music continues without being interrupted to restate the player names?
The use case I’m considering is: in arranging a song, I’m preparing two versions with different endings (as alternatives to accommodate singers’ vocal ranges). This seems like the sort of use for which Dorico’s flow/layout model would really shine:
- Write my song in a flow A that excludes the ending
- Write up my two alternate endings as separate flows B1 & B2
- Create one layout for each version, one that contains A+B1 and another that contains A+B2
Is this currently possible?
If not, could the functionality be added easily? Or, is there a different mechanism by which Dorico can facilitate writing multiple versions of a piece that differ in the contents of just one or two passages?
