Hello dear forum,
I am very happy to follow the rapid and healthy development of Dorico throughout the years of its existence. As I do a lot of work in contemporary music and algorithmic composition, my workflow incorporates, on the one hand, quite a few special notational processes. On the other hand, I am used to work with (Emacs-/Shell-like) keyboard shortcuts quite a lot and try to avoid using the mouse for interacting with my computer as much as I can. Thus, I am glad that Dorico supports scripting via Lua and hope that it will be extended and better documented in the coming versions. In order to find a workaround for now, I have written a very simple “fake” console for Dorico, which is capable of invoking certain Lua-Scripts easily via a) a concise nomenclature and b) immediate access via an Automator.app script. If you are interested, have a look at it: GitHub - rubenphilipp/dorico-console: A very simple console-imitation for Dorico.
Unfortunately, this – apparently – does not work on Microsoft Windows systems, as the “console” relies on AppleScripts and related technologies.
I hope this is helpful for some.
