Hi Dorico team
I recently completed a large orchestral work in Dorico 3 and found that, despite the lagging in engrave mode with condensing on (which I know if something being worked on) it saved me a LOT of time.
In the spirit of this, I thought the following could be very useful if implemented in Dorico: condensing linked dynamics and other objects that are the same in two grouped staves e.g. if Horns 1.2 have the same dynamic in Horns 3.4 they are condensed into one dynamic that’s placed inbetween the grouped staves with a small curly bracket. I have attached an example of this from Britten’s “Billy Budd”.
I think this could definitely help save space in full score layouts when the orchestration is large.
Welcome to hear thoughts on this.
