I’m creating a series of templates for my libraries. Some use the same libraries in different contexts. An example is with VSL BBO libraries:
A “BBO Xmap Repository”, collecting all the techniques and xmaps for the BBO libraries, to use as a palette when sketching with grand staves.
A series of “BBO Strings”, “BBO Woodwinds”, and so on, where the traditional orchestral sections are assigned to a BBO sound.
Since it is not possible to exchange playing and playback techniques, I have to rebuild them in all templates. I have the same custom techniques in both types of template. For example, the “marcato sempre (text)” playing technique is in both. It will recall the same-named playback technique, that will then go to the Marcato articulation in the BBO libraries.
When I do some editing from one of the Dorico template projects, I then export the Xmap. I then import it in the other template projects.
Here is the problem: the custom playback techniques in the target project are mostly changed to something like “pt.user.name” from the complete name in the source project. For example, “marcato sempre (text)” changes to “pt.user.marcato_text”. I’m quite sure I assigned the same name to the playing and playback techniques in the source and target projects. Should they be supposed to match the exchanged Xmap?
