Hi everyone, I’m on Dorico Pro 3.5.12 and have been trying to find a suitable place to store the date of publication for one of my music scores. The date is not the same as the date of composition. There isn’t a specific field for date of publishing so I’ve used ‘Other information’ instead. There is also a space entitled ‘Composer Dates’ but I’m not sure what its intended purpose is. I can see how this could become complicated for the developers if they were to accommodate different dates for revised or later editions. It’s not a major problem as things stand but I’d like to see a publishing date tag included.
A while back I suggested user-definable fields (or multiple “others”) for this very reason. Other is the right choice for now.
Thanks and good call. Agree user definable fields would be a great addition.
Isn’t Composer Dates the composer’s birth and death year? That’s quite often included, at least if both have happened.
Ah yes, of course. It’s obvious now. Not something I intend using as I’m only using Dorico while I’m alive.
What if only the latter happened?
I couldn’t possibly comment.
That could come in handy for decomposing.
The composer must be living their life backwards. Does that mean they would compose in retrograde?
