Hi Dorico team,
Congratulations on Dorico. I’ve just installed it this weekend and am finding my way happily around.
I discovered a problem with the alignment of staff labels, shown in the attached screenshot. After changing the staff labels paragraph style to use a different font (in this case, Arno Pro), the labels’ vertical alignment suffered. Note that the use of the flat character in the Clarinet label has its own effect as well.
I’m hoping for two fixes (and preferably both) to be available:
Is there a way to manually nudge or offset the labels aside from the setting for horizontal-distance-from-music?
Is there any flexibility as to how Dorico automatically handles staff label positioning? I’m envisioning a system wherein not only would each label be vertically centered, but options would be available for centering by text baseline or by “shrink-wrapped” frame. In this latter example, names with typographic descenders, such as “Trumpet,” would vertically center slightly differently than names without descenders, such as “Oboe,” if that looked better with a certain typeface or to the engraver’s eye.
