Now I am really distressed with a new challenge that has been put to me:
I have to copy to Dorico a part of a score (excerpt from Swan Lake - Tschaikovsky) that was loaned to me, but presents as you can see in the attached photo; B clarinets; B and F trumpets. Dorico does not foresee B clarinet - first problem, so all relations to the other instruments will not be correct.
Worse still is when he foresees B and F trumpets; in the change of key signature also visible in the photo; if you try to change the key signature for B clarinets and / or B trumpets, Dorico changes all other instruments accordingly - well - but in this case since the key is Am (relative of C) and the transpositions are made in the course of the work and not in the base key signature; I can not get the key signature simple with 2 sharps for B clarinets; B pistons (B trumpets) and no accidentals for F trombe (F trumpets).
Question 1: Is it possible to choose the pitch when choosing the instrument?
Question 2: Is it possible after the instrument has been chosen and entered in the score, to change the key signature for it without altering the rest?
This is only for the copy of the paper for Dorico; then I will (of course) transpose the instruments to their most common current tones (Bb clarinets; Bb trumpets - both).
If you have to do all this before, then sign up for Dorico and then reduce the score to a band …!
It’s for complicated subjects like that I hope the software helps me to accelerate; for the simple questions already had a pencil, a rubber and a lot of paper …!
I look forward to your help with suggestions for solutions that I hope to have; alternatively many issues to contemplate in future updates.
