So now that everybody is running correctly, I tried to reproduce one page of sheet music to test Dorico. I ran into a whole bunch of questions:
Is there a possibility to save custom keyboard layout settings (or will be ready to download later)? For us Swiss Germans the German double-s to insert a flat isn’t that useful.
I think the problem with the shortcut for changing octaves was already mentioned in the forums. Ctrl-Alt-Arrow ist the standard Windows 10 shortcut for changing the screen orientation, and I haven’t found any simple solution to disable these hotkeys so far. All possible solutions I found online include writing scripts for additional hotkey software or meddling with the registry.
Is there a possibility to enter a whole bar rest into one specific voice? For example if only the second voice plays and the first enters one bar later.
I saw that it isn’t possible to change the size of individual noteheads yet. Is it possible yet to change other items to cue size?
How can I hide objects? Is it possible to hide something only in the score, but not in the parts?
Is it possible to set up a custom subdivision of rests? For example if in a 6/8 I prefer 2 eight rests at the start of a beat instead of a quarter rest.
In the layout options, it isn’t possible to enter the format in mm, only in pt, which isn’t really practical. Will that be implemented later?
Is it possible to start a slur at the last note of tied notes, not on the first? I now it’s not totally correct engraving, but some people insist on that :-/
Is it possible to add one single pair of brackets around multiple dynamic elements?
Can I set custom sizes of staves?
How can I add a caesura with only one dash instead of two?
All in all I have to say that the Dorico is already a very good program to work with, and the results look really good. I’m really looking forward to work with it once some missing options will be implemented.
