Hi. I’m working on an orchestra score and having a problem with Dorico crashing when I try to open the violin 1, violin 2, or viola parts or attempt to view the full score in galley view (the rest of the parts will open and will switch to galley view and back with no trouble).
Here is the diagnostic report: Dorico Diagnostics.zip (1.2 MB)
I was working in Dorico 3 on a 13" 2015 MacBook Pro at the time this began happening. I had successfully added cues to all the string books and had just finished formatting the Double Bass and Cello parts in Engrave mode. When I attempted to change to the Viola part, the program crashed. I restarted several times and found it was only the three parts and full score galley view that weren’t working. I had added cues to all the string parts before doing the individual formatting without problems, though I did add a few to the cello part as I was working through it which I suppose may have contributed to some error I can’t now identify.
I did notice that VST Audio Engine isn’t shutting down, so I tried a number of things with that, but no change in the crashing issue. I sent a copy of the project to my 27" 2020 iMac to try it on 3.5 and the problem persists. I also tried creating a new viola player and copied the existing viola part into that line; same crashing issue, so it seems there must be something in the notations entry that is causing the issue. I’ll take a look at cutting down the project to those three parts so I can post that as well. I’m on deadline, so I’m going to save what I’ve got as a new project and try removing the cues and some of the formatting in the cello part to see what happens. I do have a backup save from about 6 hours previous (I’ve learned that lesson the hard way) so it’s far from a disaster, but it would be nice at the very least to find out what is causing it so it can be avoided in the future.
