For me, this function is very important. I wonder if it is possible to do this in the new version?
or for now it still have to create them in both the part and the score if you want them to appear in both places?
That is old Suggest/conversation:
So, I’ve been diligently adding the perc instrument names in my full score using “legend for sounding instruments”. This all looks good in the full score but in the perc parts the percussion legends disappear.
Is there a way of automatically copying this over from the full score into the perc part layouts? Or do I have to redo it all by hand?
I have noticed that when I insert a percussion legend for all sounding instruments into a full score, it does not transfer to the parts. Is this the intended behavior? It would be great if if did transfer, because it provides an expedient way to give players a reminder of note location on a five line percussion staff.
Thanks for any help.
Thank for any information.
Welcome to the forum,
@Yung-Ching. There’s no change in Dorico 4 in this regard, I’m afraid, but this would be worth a try:
I believe percussion legends are similar to system and frame breaks etc. in that they apply only in tthe layout in which they were created. I’ve not tried this, but you could try filtering for them in the full score, then copy them to the clipboard, switch to the part layout, and paste them there.
I saw that suggestion, but I can’t find percussion legend in the filter.
You’re right, there’s no quick filter for Percussion Legends (which I will add at some point). In the meantime, you should be able to select them quickly using
Ctrl+ Shift+ A ( Edit > Select More).
Simple work-around is to use text instead of percussion legends. That way you don’t have to worry about if you remembered to copy them to parts or not.
I think the normal use would be to have same information in score and parts and if they differ that would be an exeption. But perhaps there is a technical reason to why it works differently in Dorico.
In finale, I’m used to adding shortcut keys for that, That would save me a lot of time.
Use text is nice, But it’s annoying to check for any typo. I completely agree have same information in score and parts is normal.
Thanks you! Nice to know that! It helpful for me.
Would be great if there was an option to show these on both the score and parts without having to jump through the copy/paste hoops.
