Finale user since V1 and Sibelius 7. Currently trying out Dorico 1.2. While after almost 30 years of Finale I know it well and I like Sibelius more than I care to admit, Dorico looks and feels very modern and solid. Not sure yet if I will add it to my arsenal since I am discovering so many ‘little’ things that are hidden in Finale but they are there - Dorico either has them hidden very well or doesn’t have them.
In a 5/8 bar I want this rhythmic grouping: 8th-8th 8th.-8th. (Finale 5-8.png)
I can’t find a way in Dorico to get this. It forces me to use it’s suggestion (Dorico 5-8). The only way I could so far figure out is to use a compound meter 2/8+3/16+3/16.
Also, is there any documentation other than the online help which is ok to get started but horrible to look anything up. I used to bitch at Finale three volume printed tome, then I bitched at the Sibelius manual…
