Automatic layout of every element is a great feature in Dorico. In most cases the program does this very well.
But there are some cases where I don’t want Dorico to do any changes automatically. For example: The publisher asked me to alter the lyrics font after I had done all the layout work. When I changed from “Academico” to “Times New Roman”, every system on the page was moved by Dorico. So I had to check everything on the page.
I would prefer, if there was an option to disable the automatic layout.
PS: As a long time Finale user I never used “Automatic layout” in this program.
