When I move a passage from, say, flute 2 to piccolo, the instrument change labels are updated automatically. Dorico handles this quite intelligently, and it’s very useful when orchestrating.
I would like to request a similar approach to switching between pizz. and arco in string parts. Of course, entering an isolated pizz. or arco implicitly changes the PT for everything that follows. But when I select a range of notes/bars and assign pizz. to it, it would be nice if arco would be automatically inserted at the end of the passage, unless it happens to be in pizz. mode already, in which case the subsequent pizz. has become unnecessary and should be removed or hidden. Also the other way round: if I remove a pizz., the next arco indication is superfluous (not to say confusing) and should be removed/hidden as well.
And/or: when inserting a pizz. into a passage that’s pizz. already, hide it automatically (maybe show a signpost instead), and have an option to show it anyway, or between brackets, if you want to show a reminder after a long rest.
Similarly for con sord. and senza sord.
Additional idea: an option to display pizz. and sord. passages in a different color, a bit like the option to show notes out of range.
