I am testing Dorico right now, I work with Finale for almost 20 years and switched to Lilypond four years ago. I thought I should give Dorico a try but there is the first problem: how do I hide several noteheads? I only read in forums and in the manual that one can change noteheads to other types. But I want to delete the heads itself so the beam remains. Imagine a glissando from c to b in a group of 8 16ths, where only the first and the eighth note have a defined notehead, noteheads 2 to 7 have to be invisible. Is there a chance for something like that? I hope so.
Otherwise I cannot buy it, due to it wouldn’t fit to my music.
All the best,
