The ‘calculate harp pedaling’ feature in Dorico 3 is absolutely amazing. Love this. It’s brilliant. Thank you a thousand times over for this.
I have, however, discovered a situation that is confusing Dorico with regard to harp pedaling, and I wanted inform users on the forum of this.
Check out the attached screen shot. What you’re looking at is the harp grand staff in my score. What you can’t see is a (off screen) key signature of D major, 2 sharps.
You’ll see Dorico has correctly calculated the pedal change for the C naturals, but when we get to the glissando a couple bars afterwards, Dorico is not noticing that the “C” must return to “C#” in order to play this gliss correctly (due to the key signature). It’s not a big deal of course, it’s easily correctable in the harp part. I just thought users on the forum should be aware of this.
I suspect the reason for this error is because there is no physical C# materially present in the bar, rather it is implied by the glissando line. Don’t know if this is something that can be corrected in a future maintenance update, but I thought I’d throw it out there for consideration. Thank you!
