This forum seems very concerned with features, whether there will be an easy way to do a,b,c… Features aren’t the point. We’ve been told Dorico will be light on features in the first release. For instance, I’ll be able to explore it but not use it productively until chord symbols are implemented. But that’s just a feature. What matters is whether it has a basic structure that scales well (Sibelus appears to be hitting limits), that enables flexibility of layout (I don’t fully understand this “Streams” idea, but it looks hopeful), how well it integrates with Cubase or other DAWs (not looking quite so hopeful)… If Dorico is going to be the “big boy” of score publishing for the next generation, these are what matter.
Of course, the wisdom of a commercial release before Dorico’s feature set is comparable with the competition is another question.
