I’m a long time Sibelius user and I downloaded the Dorico trial a few days ago and so far I really like the software! I will buy it most certainly. However, today I my heart stopped for a second when I wanted to open the project I’ve been working on the last month:
I’m arranging an opera with a deadline end of March, and since I downloaded Dorico I exported all pieces from Sibelius as XML files and imported them into Dorico - so far so good. I arranged them all in one project with different flows. Yesterday evening everything worked normal, but when I tried to open the project today Dorico kept crashing every time I opened the project. I tried to restart my Mac, eject all external drives - nothing worked. As a last step I tried to zip the file and unzip it again - and suddenly it worked.
So, luckily, I was able to manage the crash issue, but now I’m a little concerned that this will happen again in a different matter. And I can’t risk loosing this file because of my deadline in 2 weeks. Are you aware of this issue, has that happened before?
