Switching between layouts

Is there a way to keep the spot when switching layouts? E.g. I am working somewhere on page 5 or the second flow in full score and want to switch to the individual player layout it always jumps to the beginning of the piece. Same when switching back to Full score. Is there anything I can do about it?

Leave something selected on the page, switch layouts, then if you’re in a version of Dorico older than 4 hit P twice to initiate and then cancel playback (which will centre the selection). In Dorico 4 there’s a new Center Selection command. It doesn’t have a factory shortcut assigned, but you can assign one from Preferences > Key Commands.

Thanks! Yes, I do have Dorico 4. That’s a great feature :slight_smile:

This works great @pianoleo, but it would be nice to have this feature as a box to tick in preferences, as I want to keep the spot every time I switch layouts. #feature-request #dorico

It’s worth mentioning here that if you select a note in the Full Score and press W, Dorico will switch to the Part that contains that note.

Thanks, @benwiggy . W takes you back and forth between Full score and the Part - so my Feature request is already taken care of.

I find that when I’m switching layouts, not only does it scroll back to the beginning (which I’m totally ok with), but it also adjusts the centre of the page so that the bottom is clipped off, and so I then need to scroll to fit the height of the page in view…

Does this happen to anyone else?

(I’d attach a project but it happens to all of them - even if I start a new one from scratch)
