Thanks Lillie - that’s useful to know.
I’ve always wondered if I’m using the different layouts in the most useful / efficient manner. Like a lot of people (I’m sure!) I just dived in and started using Dorico with as little manual reading as possible, so it is more than likely I’m not getting the best from it.
In my case - or at least for two major projects I’m currently working on, I’ve assumed that the best way to work is to use one flow for each “song”, and then a Custom layout for each song / flow, with all the instruments in that song (the instrumental forces vary per song, though of course with a total limit of 12 - Elements), and a Part layout for players / singers - some single instrument parts, some with top line guide etc.
It has never occurred to me to create another “Full Score” as I’ve assumed this was intended for literally that, the entire project. But are you suggesting that I could / should create a Full Score for each song? A full score that only contains one flow - is that good practice? So many options!
I’ll look into the master page set up more now, though as you may have guessed from the screen grabs, I’d edited the tokens on my Part & Custom layouts (per layout, not a global thing as I’m not sure how to do that in Elements) to change the left hand Lyricist token to “flowsubtitle” - and put my Cue info in the Layout info subtitle - and added the Lyricist below my Composer token on the right. This does detrimentally alter the formatting of certain objects in the score when PDF’d or printed, but it’s OK for player / stage use. I will have to duplicate the entire project to create the Publishing version anyway (without cues and performer directions)
If I am able to create (in Elements) a selectable Master page with these edited attributes that would of course save me some time. But as I said…reading the manual is generally not my first port of call, until I get stuck.
I know, in too much of a hurry…! But thanks for your input.
