I’m using the time limited demo version of Dorico and I find myself searching for answers instead of getting through making stuff.
I’m trying to make some quizzes and method exercises. I wanted to hide barlines and have the student draw in where the barlines should go. Also, I’m trying to follow the instructions of how to hide the clef. I found it on the Dorico Help search but it doesn’t seem to work. I can’t even select the clef with the select tool in Write mode. Even if I were to select it, it’s not that easy to just “hide” it. I have to turn the opacity to zero? That seems a little strange. I’m coming from a Sibelius background and those types of things were easy to do with a simple Select/Cmd+shift+H.
I even tried to make blank stave paper just to see if I could do it, but I haven’t figured that out since I couldn’t hide the barlines, the clef and the instrument name on the left.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many features that I love in Dorico. One is how easy it is to use VST’s because the interface in Play mode is very DAW like. Something other engraving software should take note of but…
Am I just early to the party?
