I have been trying to find a way to eliminate the timpani key signature in various layout/engraving options, etc. I have read there is a Dorico version that addresses this issue, but I do not where to find that.
There’s a version of the timpani instrument that doesn’t show key signatures. You can select this version in the instrument picker when adding timpani instruments, or change an existing timpani instrument to this variation.
Again I thank you!
Just to make sure this whole issue is clear: while many traditional scores use timpani without key signature, modern performers are quite capable of reading scores and parts that use key signatures, if presented with same.
