A very minor improvement request!
I frequently use ‘duplicate to staff below’ to copy lines of lyrics in choral scores. My usual workflow is to enter the stuff on the top staff, then hit ‘duplicate to below’ a few times to fill up the other parts. (Then I can go through and make small tweaks for rhythm variations and so on.)
I feel like I do this often, but seemingly not often enough to reliably remember which of the two slightly arcane keyboard shortcuts (above/below) is which. As a result, I’m forever pressing the shortcut for ‘duplicate to staff ABOVE’ when there is no staff above. What can I say… none of us is getting any younger.
When I make this mistake, Dorico’s behaviour is to do nothing (of course) but also to instantly deselect my selection. This is annoying because I then have to make the selection all over again. If it’s a complex selection involving filters, as lyric selection often is, this is quite laborious – especially if it distracts me so much that I’ve again forgotten which shortcut to press by the time I’ve finished!
Long story short: please could Dorico retain the selection when the user inputs an incorrect command? That would save me actually quite a lot of time, and make me feel a bit less stupid. Thank you!
