Logical Editor for Dorico (i.e., selecting every 4th semiquaver then accenting it)

I’m wondering if it’s possible to select every 4th semiquaver from a selection of notes. This is useful for notating drums and hi-hat or snare rolls. A similar workflow where this is done is in Cubase’s Logical editor. I’m also wondering if there will be a Dorico “Logic Editor” as a feature in the near future.

It’s not currently possible, no.

Hopefully this could be made possible by scripting, such as by writing a selection to an array and manipulating it? Pretty please?

Easy enough to do this without selecting every fourth note at once:

Select the first semiquaver;
Start Recording
Move right 3 times
Press [ (accent key)
Move right one more time.
Stop recording.

Run the macro as many times as needed.

local app=DoApp.DoApp()

Yes, but that is not only a rather brute way to go about it, the possibility to actually inspect object properties and write complex selections would make many other extremely useful processes possible.

SuperBowl Sunday is an inopportune time to start “moving the goal posts.” :astonished:
(Shades of using partially deflated footballs.)


A logical editor would be great!
