Hello everyone, I’m new here and I’m still evaluating this software, even though I really like it and I’m quite sure that I’ll purchase it in some weeks. I come from Musescore, and dorico should be my first serious investment for music notation softwares.
There’s one thing that I can do easily with Musescore but I still have to find a way (if there’s one) to do it with dorico: Using symbols while writing a text. That is, I can for example write that every quarter note a percussionist must hit one particular instrument, and with musescore I can put the music symbol corresponding to a quarter note. Or, I can use Mallet Symbols (I attach some pictures of them) instead of writing “use four mallets” or “change from drumstick to metal stick”. With Dorico I can’t do it so far, or?
Since Musescore is open source, I suspect also that those symbols are open source, So, can I import those symbols (or glyphs), as a custom set?
Yes, I’m a percussionist
