Custom lines and playing techniques

I just realized that custom lines and playing techniques don’t transfer from one project to the next.

Why on earth wouldn’t we be able to just add them to a pool and use them in perpetuity??

I created a “fill ---------” and “solo fill -------” horizontal line bracket for use with drums (first of all, I cannot believe that this isn’t already in the library, but whatever). How do I do it one time and add it into the library permanently?

In the project where you created them, select them in the corresponding dialog, then click the star button at the bottom of the list – this “Saves as Default” to your user library and makes them available in all future projects on that computer.

If you have Dorico Pro, you can also use the Library Manager to transfer items like this, as well as all kinds of settings and customization, between any two projects.


Thank you!

(It would be courteous to credit Lillie with the solution, not yourself!)

Obviously a mistake!

can one correct it?

Yes, the OP can change which post is marked “Solution” (as jzimn immediately did).

? ? ?

I’m sorry … To maximally belabor the point:
jzimn immediately changed it when Janus pointed it out,
and I thought k_b might not have understood that it was already changed when he posted.

Now if jzimn’s post #3 really did still display the ✓ Solution mark when you posted, Steven, perhaps you hadn’t refreshed the thread? But what I saw when I posted (and what we see now) is that the Solution was already changed.

No harm done (and certainly nothing malicious intended on my part).

However, I did refresh the thread many times before I took the screenshots. Likewise after taking the screenshots and before posting, just to ensure that I was not about to post in error. After posting, I also refreshed a number of times. It still displayed as seen in the screenshots. Even though the contents of a thread usually update as soon as a change is made, maybe there is a delay with updating a change to the Solution tick’s position.
Anyhow, the Solution tick is now in the appropriate place.

It’s going to be ok.
