(First days with Dorico, from 30 years with Finale)
I’m guessing that many of these (ie, Dorico equivalents of Finale “smart shapes”) are to be found in the appropriate Properties panels, but I have no idea of which Properties panels.
A couple of “smart shapes” I’m trying to find in Dorico:
an angled straight line to indicate that a part on one staff of a keyboard system is to be continued on the other staff of that system;
lines with which barlines can be extended (up or down) within a polymetric score (ie, independent time signatures on different staves) so as to help the reader visually orient common beats.
I’m sure I’ll be looking for many more examples, but - for now - I’d welcome any help in adjusting my conceptual approach to finding these things in Dorico.
Thanks, in advance!
