While the Dorico team is in the planning stages of 2.0, I’d like to add my requests for the next update, and they’re big ones for my line of work. In the interest of being more digestible than, say, the 95 Theses on the door at Wittenburg, I’m doing this one post at a time.
Right-Click Options. The more we can do without having to leave our area of focus for a menu, the better. Here are some things I’d love to see in Right-Click:

Appearance > Scale, Notehead, Stem (which is where you could add stemless notes), Parenthesize
Hide> Dim, Invisible
