Hi Dorico Team,
Thank you for including such great features in this latest update. Exporting individual Flow PDFs has been on my wishlist since V1!
Would it be possible to add: “Flow Title” in the Filename Options->Filename Ingredients? That would make exporting the whole project even easier.
Thanks again for giving us so much in a .1 update!
All the best,
You’re not the first person to suggest this, Juan. I think the issue, though, is that if you have multiple flows selected, you’re either going to get a very long filename (with all of the flows concatenated) or you’re going to get just one flow title in the filename but multiple flows in the PDF. I suspect what’s really needed is an additional option to export each flow as a separate PDF.
Thanks for the quick reply, Daniel.
“I suspect what’s really needed is an additional option to export each flow as a separate PDF.”
-Isn’t this what was added in the latest update? From quick tests, I’ve been able to export separate Flow PDFs from a selection of instruments, but the names are all the same.
“…you’re either going to get a very long filename (with all of the flows concatenated) or you’re going to get just one flow title in the filename but multiple flows in the PDF”
The long file name would be no different than what I usually name PDF’s for orchestra recordings.
Either way, this update is a welcome addition that considerably reduces export times.
I think Daniel means that, for example, if you’re exporting flows 3, 6 and 9 in a piano layout, they won’t be exported as separate PDFs but rather as one PDF containing all those flows.
This is, indeed, the really needed feature.
Right now I need to export each separate flow for each instrument, and then name them all by hand - which takes a lot of times when working with a big band.
The option to export each flow without typing the actual range is most helpful - but having the exporting and naming process fully automated would be a game changer.
So the PDFs would look like “Instrument - Project - Flow”.
Thank you Daniel, as always, for replying and understanding the need of your community.
