Apologies if some of these have already been requested, but here goes. A little about what I do with Dorico - I am working on a very large series of method books and song books with many volumes. It’s for 4 string electric bass. Some of my Dorico files have around 10-12 flows, but others have somewhere around 100. Never really more than one staff. I’ve done a ridiculous amount of note input in the past 3-4 years, all with a computer keyboard. Many thousands of pages. Hours and hours of written music. A few small features would really improve my workflow with Dorico.
I am extremely fast with the key combos of control+note to enter the note below the previous note, and shift+option+note to enter a note above the previous note. But having that not work for shift+option+B kills my buzz every time. I understand there is some conflict with the audio engine(?) Dorico uses, but if there’s any way of fixing this I would be so happy
I share flows between files all the time. Works great, except when I want to import 1 flow from a file containing 100 flows. This dialog has no “select all/select none” option. Somehow ‘import XML’ has this option, but ‘import flow’ does not.
If I create a new flow in the ‘Setup’ tab, and title the flow in the ‘flows’ pane, it shows up as the title of the flow in the ‘info’ dialog. But if I do the reverse and create a new flow in the ‘info’ dialog, it doesn’t show up as the title in the ‘flows’ pane in the ‘setup’ tab. (apologies if this is unclear, I’m not sure if I’m getting the terminology correct)
I’m not sure if anyone would want a feature like this besides me, but I would love an option for Dorico to prevent entering notes if they are out of range for the instrument. In my case, when writing for 4-string electric bass, I would not want any notes to be entered below the low E on the bass clef. Obviously this would have to be an optional setting, ideally configurable to allow for alternate tunings.
If any of these features exist in the current version of Dorico, please let me know!
