Cellist, composer, and new Dorico user here. I understand that “Violoncello” is the proper name for my instrument, but when choosing instruments I’d like to have the option to select “Cello” so I don’t have to go in and edit the instrument name. I see that “String Bass,” “Contrabass,” and “Double Bass” are all options for the bass, and I’d like the same to be true for the cello if that’s possible. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum @noahhertzman ! If you have Dorico Pro 5, you can create as many instruments as you like, and set their names, in the instrument editor.
