Thanks Rob, I do like your responses! Very practical and useful (i’m not being sarcastic, I do mean it!)
So maybe I have this ideal workflow in my head that’s unrealistic. I would like to enter pages and pages of music in the shortest time possible. I know some do this in multiple passes, first getting the notes in, then going back for articulation, enharmonics etc. I guess I’m wondering if it was possible to enter everything in as you are right there, at that bar, if this would speed things up in the end? And I guess this is where my query comes in, being able to hit a keystroke you already know to instruct Dorico on the next note, make it the chosen accidental spelling.
As a pianist, I’m much faster on the midi keyboard than on the keyboard. Instantly play the correct octave etc. I like pianoleo’s workflow of one hand on the keyboard(gamepad) and one hand on the midi keyboard. That makes a lot of sense to me, and it’s how I’m working.
Daniel, what about if it worked only if not in chord mode? After I have played the note, I am ready to move on to the next note and want to do this as fast as possible. In this respect, I suggest an override before the note is played/entered is useful.
It also would give users flexibility in how they work. I want to keep my eyes on the manuscript as long as possible without looking at the screen. And I have no way of knowing how Dorico has spelled the note until I look at the screen. For me anyway, I can see this as being helpful.
