In order to indent a staff to the half of a page (like in picture 1 and 2) I must press down CTRL+ALT and click the left arrow about 200 times (two hundred)!
It takes on my system within the actual project I am working on about 6 minutes until Dorico is ready with calculating the result of these 200 cliks.
The project has 20 flows, the Full Score has 128 pages in A3 format.
I know exactly how many clicks I need because I need to do this quite often and I developped a method to do this as fast as possible: I click very fast on the left arrow and count fast from 1 to 10 and I do this 10, 20 or more times depending on how much the staff must be indented.
Don’t you find these are much too much clicks and it takes much too much time?
It seems as if Dorico is redrawing the page after each click.
Could you optimize this behaviour?
There are some values near to the staff handle, could you make it possible to type values there?
Another way would be also great if we could move the staff handle according to the rhythmic grid value!
In picture 1 you can see a staff text that has been inserted and set to Position Below in the Properties panel.
Dorico automatically inserts enough space under the staff to avoid collision with the next staff - nice.
But when I manually set some Offset values to the text as in picture 2 to move it at the wanted position, Dorico does not remove the no longer needed space between the staves.
I am aware that I can manually move the staves with the “Staff Spacing” tool but is there a way for Dorico to automatically recognize that the additional space is not necessary any more?
