I’m going back to the beginning with Dorico 2 and working through the online help.
Under First Steps: Getting Around: Opening a Template,
The first thing I did was to open up a template, “Choral and Vocal: Choir SATB, unaccompanied”.
What I get is a system with Soprano, Alto, a blank no name at all, and then Bass.
When I go to Setup and try to assign an instrument to this third system with no name at all, I discover that Dorico does not have an instrument name for “Tenor” like it does for “Soprano”, “Alto” and “Bass”. What it does have at the end of the alphabetic listing is “[Solo Tenor]” which appears not to be a real instrument and doesn’t have its naming information formatted correctly.
Yes, it indeed looks like Dorico 2 does not have a “Player” for “Tenor” as in a section of tenors in a choir. But it has proper “Players” for “Soprano”, “Alto”, “Baritone”, “Bass” and others. What should I make of this?
