I’ve read the concept of Project and Flows and think I understand it (to some extent).
I assume it could be used, in a simple example, as
Project: “Piano Concerto No. 21 by Mozart”
Flow(s): Movements 1, 2, and 3
all contained in one Dorico file. This is all fine and clever thinking. It is a more refined version of “New Section” in some other notation software.
But, in the same way, one could generalize it to more than a Concerto or a Sonata etc. to
Project: “Romantic Piano Pieces”
Flow(s): Piece 1, Piece 2, …, Piece n – Each with separate title page etc.
This would aid in generating editions/collections etc. but it’s not the ‘traditional’ way of publishing collections and would pose quite some editorial and publishing problems “down the road”.
Myself I would assign each Piece a separate Dorico file (i.e. Project, with one Flow only). That said, and here’s the main question, can one batch print/process several open Dorico files/projects like Save All, Print All, Search/Find All etc.?
As a continuation, will it be possible in future versions, not in Version 1, to manage many projects from a “book”-like file (FrameMaker terminology, sorry for those that do not know this term), to compile and manage scores efficiently?
N.B. A book-file in FrameMaker is simply a container that holds chapters that let’s you make general settings for all chapters, re-arrange chapters, select which chapters (if not all) to print etc.
