When I compose, I often want to leave notes(memo) on the score, to remind myself what kind of thoughts I have on various spots of the music. Because of the due dates for finishing pieces, I often end up not realizing everything I wanted (or came up) to do on a piece. These notes(memos) become very important when I rework on such piece after a while. When I was using sibelius, I used review>comments function to leave such notes. That satisfied my needs because those notes could be seen by only myself. I don’t want these notes to be printed or exported to PDF because the notes are not for performances, but for further composition.
In dorico, I know that comments function is not implemented yet, but I’m looking for good workarounds.
So far I’m using shift+X text with 0 opacity. When I turn opacity to 0 it becomes invisible on the score, but dorico puts a signpost. I can see the text by clicking the signpost, and these notes do not appear on the printed score. But while I’m composing I still need to click on the signpost to see what the note is about, and the signpost itself masks first few letters of the text.
I’d be very happy if someone knows a better way to leave composer’s notes!
