Switching from Avid

Finally finished my first major Dorico project, two days after finishing my LAST major Sibelius project.

Wow! I can’t believe how much easier Dorico is. No looking back.

I must say that I still have to remind myself from time to time that I can’t do certain things the way I used to-- that there’s a new better way to do them. But the changeover is less intimidating that I that it would be.

I want to thank the people in this forum for covering so many sticky issues. Every time I was stumped and couldn’t find some particular thing in the index to the manual, I was able to find it in a few minutes in the forum. I didn’t have to post a single topic while doing the project. Everything that puzzled me was either in the manual or in the forum, or both.


Lucky you are! While Dorico is pretty straight forward (my first project is a 277 pages score and it’s going very well!) I had no luck with the search engine here!!

kx3kx3, the search function within this forum is poor. If you use it with any frequency then I highly recommend the “dorfor” tweak explained by Daniel here: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=120753#p655648
