I am really convinced of the 5-mode-system of Dorico now. During the last year I got into the habit, that I enter everything in Write mode and only change some Notations or Engraving opitons during this time and don’t touch Engrave mode at all. When I go to Engrave mode for final shaping, there are two things, which often force me to go back to Write mode:
- Linked and/or grouped dynamics: it would be great, if one could group/ungroup and link/unlink dynamics in Engrave mode as well. Or if linked dynamics don’t move as well, when I adjust the position of a dynamic in Engrave mode.
- Moving system or frame breaks: it would be time saving, if breaks could be moved in Engrave mode as well. And I would like to ask for a possibility to move the breaks to the next or previous bar (e.g. using ctrl + alt + arrow) as well.
I know, that these requests are not brand new, but I just wanted to share my experience from the last months.
