Hi. I have Dorico Elements 3.1.10. I would like to notate a piano piece that uses 4 staves (two treble, two bass). In the Dorico help guide in the section Notation Reference / Staves / Extra Staves the first paragraph writes “In Dorico Elements, you can add extra staves to any instrument, for example, to make complex contrapuntal music easier to read because it is spread out across more staves than usual for that instrument.”. It then shows a great Debussy example with three staves (attached). But following the example the guide goes on to write that “In Dorico Elements, you cannot add extra staves. However, extra staves are shown if you import or open a project that contains them.” that contradicts the first paragraph I think. I did look at Setup / Layout Options and couldn’t see how to add staves there. So my questions:
- Is this a true limitation of Elements?
- I thought Engraving mode was the main feature taken from Elements, so if I had Pro would I use Engraving mode to add the new staves?
