at last finding some time to spend learning Dorico, entering a Bach cantata. I have some first questions, there will probably be more. Could not find any threads adressing this.
Write mode, caret active. I can not enter the grid from the end of an empty bar with cursor keys. When I press left arrow, the caret will jump to previous entry which is not always desirable, especially if there are many empty bars… I would prefer left arrow to do the same as right arrow (unless I press a modifier key) - move one note to the left. Am I missing something?
When I copy lyrics, the positioning is not updated for the rhythm of the new part. For instance, a one syllable word that spans two quarters will keep its alignment when copied to a half note. Also, sometimes when I write a syllable where it starts and then exits the lyric mode, it does not automatically put lyrics extenders. That would be nice too.
Already discussed, but flip enharmonic on the fly without exiting note entry mode would be good. As far as I can tell, there is no way to do just that.
In write mode without caret active, navigating with the cursor keys is a bit unpredictable. Whenever the window scrolls, the orange selection thing goes crazy. Bug?
I think it would be great to be able to move view one bar at a time with for instance SHIFT+HOME/END. If there already is a way, please enlighten me.
I was changing some layout options, and suddenly the lyrics had lost some hyphens. I could not find any way of repairing this than typing the lyrics again. Is this a bug or did I do something?
Anyway I am really enjoying this. It is a bit hard to get used to a new way of doing practically everything, but the time I saved on layout today doing a choir arrangement was worth it all. I come mainly from Finale, but have some experience with Sibelius and Lilypond as well.
