I’m making both an urtext and performing edition of the Vivaldi “Gloria.” I’ve mostly finished the urtext, and I thought it easiest to make a master score with all the parts displayed and paired up, like so:
- Oboe U (urtext)
- Oboe P (performing)
- Trumpet U
- Tumpet P
… and so on.
This makes it much easier to see the differences in the two editions, and copy score items over. Then I’m planning to make custom scores for each edition, so all the urtext parts are together on one score and all the performing parts on another.
The problem is that Dorico is helpfully numbering everything. So I’ve got Oboe 1 and Oboe 2, Trumpet 1, Trumpet 2, etc. I know I can add a space after the instrument name to create an “invisible” difference, but I always prefer a proper solution if one exists.
How do I fix this? Do I have the ability to remove the numbering of parts in the score? Is there a better way to accomplish this?
