I think it would be great if there was a read-out in the status bar of the currently selected note value. I like to have the interface stripped down to the minimum (especially when working on the go, to save screen estate on my 13" Macbook), plus Dorico was designed with keyboard shortcuts in mind so I barely use the mouse and I keep my panels closed most of the time. The only problem is there’s no way I can tell which note value is selected during input time, without opening the left panel, so that kind of ruins it for me.
Other than that I just finished my first big band piece in Dorico Pro 3.5 and I’m very impressed over all. I’ve installed Note Performer 3 for handling articulations in a more realistic way, it’s even better.
You guys are great !
