This might be covered somewhere else… but I could not find it.
I feel I have gotten very good with Dorico. For the most part because I watched the MOLA video from May 2016 about a thousand times. Daniel was very explicit as to why things were the way they were. Which in turn, helped me to understand how to do something in Dorico, and why.
One thing I have never truly grasped is the use of the ALT key by itself, or the use of SHIFT + ALT, etc. Can someone explain the rationale used as to why at times I use ALT, and then why at other times I use SHIFT + ALT? For instance, is SHIFT + ALT used to lengthen items, versus just ALT used to move items. To me, I fumble around at times with just pressing ALT, when I need to press SHIFT + ALT, or some other combination. And I don’t know if it is just me, but sometimes I feel the use of SHIFT + ALT isn’t consistent in application. But I feel that this is just me not understanding what the rationale is behind when to use ALT versus SHIFT + ALT.
I hope this makes sense.
