I have the trail version of Dorico Elements. I’m new to Dorico. I’ve only used Finale before, so I’m still figuring out how Dorico works.
Today, as I was notating a piece I wrote, I ran into two issues that I have no idea how to work around. The first problem is occasionally, whenever I click on a tool other than the note input tool, I’m not able to put notes on the score. It only allows me to work with rests. Even closing the program and reloading the score doesn’t fix it. I have to delete the project entirely and start from scratch.
The other issue is I can’t hear the notes when I place them on the score. I had a problem with running YouTube shortly after I downloaded the program (audio renderer error or whatever), which I fixed by restarting the audio device, but since then, I can’t get Dorico to play the notes back. Playback doesn’t work either.
Any help with these issues is greatly appreciated!
