Today I had some time to look at Dorico more seriously. There are really some great things and there are some things that feel strange in the beginning. Here’s a little test (see attachment).
The same 4 bars notated twice. In the first 4 bars I notated one voice in every stave. Everything fine and spacing way better than Sibelius. I couldn’t flip the tie in the third bar of the first system and also the stem of the dotted quarter note bar 4 didn’t want to go up. Don’t know why.
In the second system the same music, now with two voices in the upper stave. The dotted quarter note is ok now. The tie still isn’t flipable. In the lower stave the cross-stave notes resulted in a whole rest, high on a leger-line. You still see these strange leger-lines, (I set the opacity of the rests to 0%).
Notating it this way, it wasn’t possible to enter a two-bar hairpin below the lower stave. I also didn’t find a way to flip the two accents in the last bar.
In both systems the mf is touching a beam.
