I’ve been watching a couple of the Dorico videos, and I see that you can put a second flow on the end of another flow’s page using the Engrave mode. To support the flowTitle and so on, the proposal I’ve heard is that you should eventually use a flow2Title token. Is this going to generalise, so we need flow8Title if we’re doing something like a set of exercises?
I think it could get quite difficult to get the right layouts if we work only on a page basis, and something changes (perhaps a new flow or extra music) which pushes all the flows forward a page. I have in my head a concept of how flows work which is surely wrong, but is much more like a word processor - the flows are laid out in sequence using a page template. In which case, it seems to me that there’s a level of templating missing, between the generic page layouts, and the music boxes themselves, which would allow you to position frames at the start of a flow wherever it occurs in a page, and to set up frames between flows that would also move with the flows if they had to change pages. I guess in this conception, you have generic layouts for page numbers and other things that don’t change from page to page, then flow layouts, which would have flowTitle, flowComposer and so on. In that sense, you could have a vertical view as well, which would simply stack frames as long as they need to be to contain each flow or the other frames attached to that flow.
