Tip: Export project template from Mac to PC (and iPad)

Dorico 4 Pro

I’d created a custom template for a (colliery) brass band on my Mac, and wanted to use it on my PC (and iPad come to think of it).

My solution was to create a dummy piece using the template, then saved it to the Dorico folder on iCloud.

On the PC I imported the dummy piece, deleted all the notes, then saved it as a template.


Why not just copy over the original file the template was created from over?

Haven’t figured out how to do the same trick with the iPad though. After importing the dummy piece and deleting all the notes, it has to be saved as a regular file since I can’t see a way of saving it as a template.

On opening this regular file, the first thing to do is to give it a new name so as not to over write the original.
