Hello! Unless I’m missing something, this is a feature request… or is there a workaround?
I’m composing for an ensemble of individuals many of who both sing and play (not at the same time). I love the ease with which I can create a soprano/violin, hurdy-gurdy/percussion player etc. in Dorico and how good it looks in Page View.
However I am a stickler about composing in Galley view. I need to scroll and not have the layout shifting on me, so I can quickly see what relates to what. Sudden visual changes can lose a lot of time and focus for me. A year ago I would have called this stubborn preference, now I know it’s a quirk of my neurology (shout out to other Dorico users with adult ADHD!).
So I would absolutely love to be able to see each player in Galley view represented by either 1) a single staff with signposts for instrument changes, or 2) at the least, a bracket or other visual connection between their multiple staves.
Another point: There is a clear notational dividing line between a player holding multiple instruments, and a “kit”. However my singing instrumentalists might well sing and play for a bar here or there, or overlap at transitions. Could instrument changes ever implement auto-divisi at those moments? Or is there a workaround with ossias? Layers?
Thanks as always!
