Score Preface

Hi everyone,

I am working on a score that needs a preface (with the instrumentation, techniques used in the score and other performance notes). To my understanding, I would need to use Master pages, but I am very confused as to how to use them, and also how to write my preface with them.
If anyone can help it would be amazing!

Thank you!

Or for a written tutorial: https://www.scoringnotes.com/tips/working-with-master-pages-in-dorico-part-1/

Amazing !!! Thank you so much!

Is there also a video for using fonts? I need to put symbols (such as a fermata) on one of my index pages to explain my use of those fermatas in the score.

Look up the symbol on the SMuFL website. Hold symbols are hereโ€ฆ
https://w3c.github.io/smufl/gitbook/tables/holds-and-pauses.html

Then use the unicode token. For example {@U+E4C0@} for the first fermata on that page.

I see! thank you !
