Global Dynamics

Hoping this isn’t already covered somewhere (if so, please point it out to me!)

I’m wondering if there is an option for global dynamic editing in Dorico.
When editing, I would love to be able to make a broad selection over the a full score (let’s say a 2-bar phrase in the entire orchestra), and have the option to apply a crescendo to every part that is selected (all the strings, or all the winds, or the whole orchestra if need be…)
Clicking on each individual line seems like a big waste of time, when a simple global dynamic change is wanted.


Yes, I agree that it would be nice to be able to create a dynamic across multiple staves at once. You can already do this for slurs, as you may have found, but not yet for other types of item. In the meantime, hopefully you will find Alt+click a quick(ish) substitute: input one hairpin, then hold the Alt key and click one after the other on the staves where you want the hairpin to appear, being careful to click at the same rhythmic position on each one.
