Bart Ruffle’s blog has a great example how different notation programs handle note spacing.
Notably, the old MS-DOS-based Score used to be unbeatable.
Now, see how Dorico handles it.
The excerpt below uses no manual adjustments, except for:
- the tuplet number in bar 2, to show ratio
- the first group of triplets in bar 3, to include the rest in the beaming group
- the slur in bar 3, where I turned “Tucking Index” to 0, in order to avoid collision with a triplet number.
Some settings have been changed from Dorico’s default. E.g. beam settings.
I tried adjusting the “Gap after initial clef”, it doesn’t seem to work though.
The result is impressive. It looks like we have a new king!
Congratulations to the Dorico team.
