Background: I imported a MusicXML document exported from Staffpad, as I’m using Staffpad for on-the-go composition but treating Dorico as the “source of truth” for the project I’m working on.
Problem: Dorico successfully identified some but not all players as they exist in the score (fair enough!). As a result I ended up with a bunch of extra players.
Desired solution: At this point, I would like to not just move the extra instruments from those players but actually combine the instruments entirely. I don’t want, for example, to end up with two separate French Horns assigned to Horn (F) 1; I just want a single instrument! Neither a search through the docs and messing with the UI showed me how to do that particular thing.
(Feel free to tell me I’m thinking about the solution wrong!)
