Is there a way to create front matter that is easily altered between the score and parts? The front matter includes a title page, my program notes/text for my piece, and notation guides for each instrument. Basically, I would like to be able to include everything in the score, but only some of these pages in individual parts (e.g., my Flute part would only contain the title, program notes, and flute notation guide).
My initial thought was that I could create a flow for the title page/program notes, and individual flows for each notation guide. This way, I could simply go into Setup mode and check the boxes that were necessary for each part. Unfortunately, it is impossible to create a flow that only contains text. Additionally, when creating the notation guides, it seems impossible to create the music snippets for each technique and then transfer them across layouts. I have gone through many of the forum posts and YouTube tutorials on doing things like creating worksheets, so I can easily create my notation guides in the score. However, in using the system shown on most of these tutorials, I would need to redo this process for each individual part/layout.
My solution has been to create a new Master Page for each individual page of the front matter (Title page, first page, second page, flute notation guide, etc.) but this has been pretty annoying when it comes to the notation guides. You can’t use Layout music flows on Master pages as is necessary to create nice-looking musical snippets. I have thus had to go in and manually override each music flow on the score and each individual part to be a Layout flow.
Is there an easier solution to all of this? I love being able to create front matter and music in Dorico as it makes the workflow so much nicer for things like doing edits later on, but this process has been quite a pain so far in Dorico. It seems that given the features like flows, master pages, etc. it should be so much easier than I have found it to be thus far!
