Some inconvenience I recently encountered a few times is that Dorico (or more likely the audio engine) bricks up unrecoverably when you receive a call on your computer. It might only be the case when using Bluetooth headphones.
For example: I’m working in Dorico on my MacBook with AirPods or a JBL Bluetooth headphone.
I receive a call on my phone, and because Handoff is set up, I can answer the call on my computer.
When I return to Dorico after the call, the beachball is spinning and nothing can be done to recover the work since the last auto-save. I have to force-quit Dorico and restart from the last auto-save.
This also happened with video-conferencing, so I’m suspecting it has to do with the system audio switching to the (low-quality) “hands-free” connection to the headphones (instead of the regular “stereo”).
The final lines in the “application.log” file do reference multiple successive switches of the “sample rate” and “device ports”.
Attached is the diagnostics generated after restarting Dorico after such a bricked instance.
Hopefully it’s of some use.
