I don’t expect anything. I am a new Dorico user and did not know which functions were native (standard) and which weren’t; and the two training courses I purchased and completed did not address this.
At the time I began, it seemed logical to me to put two flutes on a staff, two clarinets on a staff, etc. as a conductor sees it and as I would do on paper–and so I would have fewer staves to scroll while working. Having discussed this on the forum, I understand more about Dorico’s model.
Rather than recreate this project, I’ll continue, instruct a due as appropriate, and engage a copyist, if needed, to separate parts. On the next project, I can reconsider how to set things up.
As a footnote, I’ll add that I designed software at large corporations for many years and I understand the trade-off decisions developers face. Overall, I think the Dorico team made excellent choices and it’s a great product.
