(had to change 1st paragraph to code since formatting didn’t word-wrap without it).
I've installed Dorico for iPad 220.127.116.118 and know it's not necessarily representative of the full software. However, I've looked at a few videos and am listening through a blog interview with the Dorico product specialist. I'm having a few issues that I'm not sure the app supports:
Font. I usually use a “Jazztext” font on my “it’s not Dorico” app on my PC. I know iPad doesn’t support custom fonts - I’m OK with that. However, I tried the handwritten font on iPad (Petaluma) and didn’t like it. I didn’t find a way to change the font from Petaluma to Bravura (the non-handwritten font provided). I checked a forum posting which said to edit the score on a Mac/PC which apparently allows for changing the font – then re-import it to Dorico. I’m installing Dorico SE just to do this but it seems inefficient. I sometimes, even in my PC environment, decide that handwritten isn’t clear enough and choose to change the note font mid-stream. Or sometimes I start in the non-handwritten font and decide later I want to switch. On the PC this is fine and supported. It doesn’t seem natively available in Dorico iPad (yet).
Clefs. Often I will start writing a piano part with grand staff - but often I will choose to delete the bass clef and handle a chart only in treble. This is for creating a more lead-sheet kind of reference part for the piano where I can fit more on the screen (more staves). However, this is a “depends” thing. I didn’t see a way to delete a staff. I could turn the bass clef into treble. However, I couldn’t see a place to delete a staff.
This is transferred from a support question as the support staff has recommended leveraging the forum since support does not (yet?) have iPad devices and therefore cannot provide support for Dorico for iPad.
