I’ve been fooling around with Dorico since the summer and have this month made the leap in earnest. Now that I have deadlines I’m experiencing all the woes any new user to complex applications must slug through. This is compounded by inevitable “new program” bugs and the light documentation. When I began delving into this forum in search of answers, a couple of things have struck me:
If I were the developer, one glance at the seemingly endless parade of tough questions from picky users might make getting up in the morning rather tough.
The army of experienced users helping other users and the generous time Daniel spends giving helpful and thorough answers tells me I’m in the right camp. Despite incredible obstacles, Dorico is tirelessly growing into the engraving and creative tool we’ve all wished we had. Brought to life by developers who have devoted a substantial part of their lives making this dream into reality, ultimately helping composers bring music to a world that desperately needs it.
Well, enough of the sentimental catharsis, now it’s nose back to the grindstone.
