I know this has come up before, but just putting out another request to please, please add an option to completely freeze the score and turn off any sort of automatic respacing.
I’m engraving a series of choral pieces for a publisher, and the composer is submitting revisions. Everything has been pretty straightforward, and the publisher is going to start “officially” soliciting Dorico submissions (yay!). But nearly every time I make an edit to the score, my staff spacing changes. Sometimes it changes in spots that don’t even seem related to the current edit. This has gotten me more than once, and it requires me to basically re-check the entire layout each time I make a small edit.
Here are several culprits:
- bar numbers that I manually positioned get moved
- manual staff spacing changes
- adding dynamics re-spaces everything vertically
I would love to have the ability to effectively freeze the score—lock every single item on the page—so I can edit without fear of undoing. Thanks.
