Hi Leo, thanks.
I like the automatization of Dorico, but sometimes I feel the need to do some more manual stuff, especially when I am preparing music education material, and it becomes a puzzle. This flexibility in layouts is very important for music education. For composition, I entered a pickup measure today, but I wanted to remove it in order to make the click track (although my Dorico is not playing the different dynamics I write), and it was really hard to find out how to remove it. I ended up being able to remove it, but it was a really hard to find out how.
I know Dorico works differently from Finale, and I am enjoying using Dorico. However, for further improvements, I would suggest more intuitive features in Dorico (more right click options instead of alt/ctrl/shift+ something).
Regarding reliable behaviour, once again my Dorico crashed and turned off. It has happened a few weeks or months ago. This time, I was deleting “flow 1” from each individual part, but I selected another part before clicking somewhere out of the box, and it crashed.
Once again, there is nothing in “Crashes” in “Dorico Diagnostics”, but I am attaching it anyways.
