I find the interaction between Dorico and the instrument editor a bit cumbersome.
- If I’m in Play mode, drill down an instrument and click on the little piano keyboard icon to edit it, I would like to have the current instrument already selected in the HALion window that opens.
- The HALion window appears to not be a part of the current application in a way, but isn’t a separate application either. If that window is open it still shows “Dorico” as application name in the menu bar on macOS but I can’t switch between windows of Dorico with Cmd-< or Cmd->, as usual on Mac. I can switch between windows if a project window is focused. And likewise, the three-finger-swipe-down gesture on the trackpad that brings up all windows of the current application only brings up the HALion window if that window currently has focus. It’s kind of weird. I would like it to be a true part of Dorico (not to mention the very non-Dorico and unintuitive user interface and interaction in that window which deserves a whole nother discussion).
