If not already available (which I can’t find or make happen), it would be very handy for Dorico to be able to retain mixed fonts and/or styles when copying/pasting between staff and system text blocks.
As an example, when I’m sketching ideas, I often label each with text blocks that include:
- Academico Regular 12(-ish) pt.
- Academico Regular subscript
- Encercle Sans HX2 16 pt.*
I’ve defined the Encercle parameters as a Character Style so I can more quickly fix them when copying and pasting, but I still have to select each string between the “/” dividers plus the two subscripts later in the text string.
Having all of the varied typographic info be paste-able would obviously be a big time-saver.
*Encercle is a very cool font by Typodermic Fonts that allows multiple characters to be enclosed in geometric shapes. (The inside of the shapes can even be colored.)
