Currently, when using the properties panel at the bottom of Dorico’s window, you need to first activate the property by clicking on the little switch, then you need to click on one of the option “buttons” to select the applicable option. For example, to change the slur curvature after adding a slur to the score, you need to make 2 mouse clicks: first on the activation switch, then on the selection button itself. It would be nice if this could be accomplished with one mouse click, by simply clicking on the option selection button, which would also automatically activate the property switch. Similarly, clicking in a text field such as “Custom scale” should enable that property and allow its value to be typed directly and immediately, without the need to do this in 2 steps. This would make the interface a lot more streamlined and intuitive, and make the properties panel fast and easy to use!
As an analogy, in an operating system printing dialog, the default option is generally to print the entire document, so the “print all pages” radio-button option is set by default when the dialog opens. However, if the user clicks in the fields below that option and sets a specific page range to be printed, the “print specific page range” radio-button option is automatically selected, instead. (The user does not have to make an extra redundant click to select that option before typing the page range.)
Anyway - in spite of this minor annoyance, Dorico is a joy to work with! Looking forward to the next update!
