While editing a score, I changed the name of the instruments via Setup > Edit Instrument Names.
I saved these names by checking “Save as default for instrument” to have the name saved for other instruments of the same type in the current project.
However, after creating a new project, I can see that those same names are assigned to my instruments. For example, a violin is not named “Violin”, but “V.II.”, as in one of the violin sections in the other project.
According to Dorico’s manual, that checkbox should only save the defaults for the current project. It seems it is doing so as a general preference for the whole program.
Or am I doing something wrong?
