I really am trying to use Dorico for my new large theater project, but I just can’t get into the composing flow because of little issues. For example, the dynamics acting weird. Suddenly there are double dynamics attached to a single staff. I delete one of them and all of the other staves get delete as well. I now this is because of grouping and Linking, but is there please a way to turn these options off by default? I never found this option helpful and I cannot count the amount of time I spent to correct their behaviour.
Plus notes that I paste on another staff are being notated with the stems into the wrong direction and there seems to be no other way to correct this than by re-entering them again, what is the point of copy/paste in that case?
Slurs jump all the way to many bars further and it seems this is because somehow there were different voices used within a single staff, no idea why, because I know how to work with voices. Selecting those bars and assigning them to a single voice makes the whole phrase jump 20 bars further…
I know i am ranting here, but it’s very frustrating because I really want to compose my new work in Dorico, but I can’t not get into that composing flow because of these things. Plus just now, Dorico crashed again. Maybe it’s not the right time for me to start a large work that I have pretty much finished in my head into Dorico. Plus a theatre company is already interested in performing this work which makes me want to work as fast as possible.
Not sure to be honest what I want to achieve with this post, i know there are probably solutions for everything, but maybe I am not the only one having the feeling it’s better to wait to the next version before trying to write a large work?
