Displaying two(+) flows, which don't follow the playhead?

Hi there,

I am not sure if that feature exists and if I’m too blind to find it.
Scenario: I am using a separate flow for sketching out stuff - some harmonies, some melodies etc. I create a second flow for refinement of that sketch, and maybe more flows (Orchestration, alternate orchestration etc).
What would be ideal during that kind of work is to have two flows open (e.g. the sketch and the refinement) to check and look stuff up on my sketch, and work on the refinement. In general that works nicely (either with splits or separate windows), until I want to check one flow via playback - then the playhead (of course) jumps to the playback position and starts playing - all windows/panes syncing to that flow that plays. The issue/question is - how can I make sure that e.g. the sketch flow doesn’t follow the playback?
Meaning - as If I would open an exported PDF on the side - just stay still while e.g. the left split pane is playing back.

So, is it possible to “freeze” the pane(s) or window(s) to not follow the playback display? Or if not, would that be useful to others and make it as a feature request for the next update?

“The next update”? :laughing:

I’m afraid this feature is not currently available. You’re not the first person to request a feature like this, Mat, and it’s something that we will certainly consider for future versions of Dorico, but I can’t make any specific promises about when it might be implemented.

Thank you Daniel. Good to know that it’s on your radar.
