I know we often give the team a hard time here with all our dissatisfactions and missing features, but once in a while it’s nice to step back and appreciate what they have accomplished:
After finishing my percussions concerto, I am currently sitting at the preface (which is very much work in progress).
Dorico makes it so easy and nice to design these.
In this example, I can change how:
- the percussion instruments are presented (5-line or grid)
- change the noteheads and their positions in the staff
- change the instrument names
- change font choices for the paragraph styles
in the score, and because I am using the same players, it all automatically changes in the preface as well!
No mistakes! No inconsistencies! No multiple files and cross platforms!
And: it already looks beautiful, and that’s before the fine tweaking.
Just my two thanks
