I’ve just upgraded to Dorico Pro 5, and cannot get trills to appear in my score in “Panel” mode.
I click on the Trill symbol in the panel, and the cursor changes to an arrow with the “tr” symbol attached. But when I click on a note-head, nothing happens. Moreover, I cannot get rid of the “tr” symbol other than by selecting something else.
Seriously, for some reason, when I’ve expanded the “ornaments” panel, and click on the “tr” symbol at its top left, I get the expected cursor, but it doesn’t do anything when I click on a note on the score. All of the other ornamentations I’ve tried, work exactly as I would expect.
What DOES work, is using a pop-over.
I wonder what’s going on here?! I am using the very latest version of Dorico 5 Pro, downloaded and installed from scratch just yesterday (May 30th).
My Baroque / Classical panel looks like this; I’ve clicked “tr”, as you can see, and I get the “arrow with tr” cursor, but it does not do anything! All the other ornaments work instantly, as do dynamics, time signature changes, etc. Specifically, NOT trills!
Hi Janus - sorry, you asked which version - Dorico 5 Pro, version 5.00.10 / 30th May 2023.
I’ve uninstalled my version 4.0, so can’t check it (short of re-installing it). But from memory, I am pretty sure it did work when I tried it. For assorted reasons, I did my last two big projects in Finale 2005 because I was under time pressure, and had not yet learnt my way around Dorico sufficiently to feel confident.
Hi Derrek, I’ve tried that too. That panel button just gives me the Trill cursor, but does nothing else. Popovers work, so I can still add trills - it’s just frustrating because it’s slower doing it that way.
This does appear to be a teething-trouble bug in version 5; I just hope it gets picked up by the dev team and fixed!
Daniel, just wondering which version of Dorico you were using when you said the Panel Trill works?
I’ve recently updated to 5.0.10 (30 May 2023) PRO on Windows 11, having first uninstalled my Dorico 4 PRO system, which I hadn’t used much because shortly after buying it, I got a couple of time-critical projects, and did them in Finale 2005, with which I am very familiar.
I think the trill thing DID work in version 4, but literally can’t remember, because it was many months ago I last used it.
This is the version of the Panel that I have in my system, and as you can see, I’ve selected the “tr” button, but apart from giving me the “tr” cursor, it literally does nothing, even though all the other ornaments (and things like dynamics, time signatures, etc) work as expected.
