I am trialing Dorico 2 Elements after working the last few years with MuseScore 2.
In general, I like most of the things Dorico has to offer, although I am having a little difficulty adapting to the notation input concept of moving a cursor rather than treating the rests as silent notes that can be “played” (play the qwerty keyboard 2-handed and input a melody as fast as a piano-keyboard).
One thing I use a lot in MuseScore that I don’t find in Dorico is the possibility to use the mouse to drag and drop pitch change of a single note in the middle of a chord.
I tend to make a simple first pass and then experiment with harmonies, or copy “template bars” and paste then adjust the notes to alter the harmonics.
I wonder - is this planned for Dorico but not implemented yet?
Or is it something you are “not supposed to do” because…(please supply the alternative).
A typical example:
Piano part with octave quavers in the base while the treble has bar-long chords such as “G/B/G+okt” where the middle note cycles “B / Bb / D / C# C”.
Normally I would create the first bar then copy + paste at least 3 times and adjust the key harmonic note in each bar with the mouse.
How would you suggest to handle this example in Dorico 2?
