- Is it possible to add new music symbols to the list of music symbols? I would like to add fingerings for clarinet.
- Do you have plans to implement option for inserting note names?
Thank you for your answer. I will try “playing technique” solution.
I know that I can use note names inside noteheads, but this is not what I want. In Sibelius I can automatically put note names below notes, and then I use special font to show clarinet fingerings. I can use plain text and my “clarinet font”, but then I have to do it for every note.
I’m working in music school with children from 8 - 19 years old. For younger students I need scales and chords with note names and fingerings for clarinet. With Sibelius I can do that, but I think Dorico is much better, and I would like to see something like “note names generator”. There are more reasons for that. For example: I’m in Croatia, and we use little different note names than the rest of the World.
You can see what I want in the attached example.
Dorico doesn’t currently have a feature to automatically add the note name for a note via text, but when we eventually have more extensive scripting capabilities it should hopefully be very easy to add this.
Ooh. This’ll be helpful for me. I often want to add cautionary note names to notes that are (for example) 3+ ledger lines off the stave. It’s a bit laborious doing them one at a time…
It would be nice to have plugins for that specific needs. Others who don’t need this features, they will not install & use plugin.
Plugins are dependent on Dorico having proper scripting functionality, which Daniel promised (with no specific timeframe!) a couple of posts up…
