I just printed out my first large project done with Dorico 2.
It’s a 178 page book done in InDesign.
The music pages are exported from the Graphics output in Dorico as PDFs.
This is how page 32 looks in PDF file.
This is how page 32 looks after print out:
The character font I use is Minion Pro.
Franky, one of the reasons I was moving away from Finale is because the PDFs it creates have similar flaws: it doesn’t print the note heads of 1/2 notes. Dorico seems to be a bit more random, as it affects some text strings, triplet "3"s, a few note heads (page 71). The measure numbers are funny.
Anyway, much of my music is published in print and sold on gigs and sometimes as PDF downloads from my website and it haunts me that somebody downloading it would have that problem.
I think if I print individual pages from this PDF all characters get printed. So I might print in 10 page increments. But it’s not very professional.
Since this happens with PDFs from Finale as well as Dorico (which uses a different music font) I suspect it has something to do with the printing system in OSX. Somebody on the Finale forum suggested that because there are hundreds of imported PDFs in my InDesign document, each one potentially containing a copy of the fonts there might be some ill effects.
Any ideas to trouble shoot are welcome.
