Is there a video that demonstrates creating transpositions from a lead sheet? I am trying to figure this out from piecing together information from multiple videos, and I’m having no luck. Every command that I expect to do what I want does not do what I want.
For example, on the advice of others, I created a new layout which included the flow created for the lead sheet. I then attempted to apply various transpositions and clef overrides in Setup, which had no effect on the resulting music in the layout.
Is there a video that walks one through, step by step:
- Creating a lead sheet;
- Creating a new layout of the same music in Bass Clef (for example);
- Creating a new layout of the same music in Bb (for Saxophone or Clarinet, for example).
I know that I can create new players, copy the music from the first player to the new players, and then work with those pieces of music. But my understanding is that I can achieve the same result more quickly by creating layouts from the original part.
Apologies if this has been covered in depth, but search in the forums and in the documentation have not revealed this process.
EDIT: I’ll also say that I am very frustrated with the cognitive dissonance that results from the interplay between the list of Layouts in the right column in Setup mode and the layout that actually shows on screen with the layout selector at the top of the window. Is there some setting somewhere that allows one the option to switch to the view of the layout that is selected in the Layout column on the right in Setup mode?
EDIT: Note that I have watched the Creating Leadsheets in Dorico and Part Preparation Improvements videos already posted:
Watching these videos did not result in my finding a workflow to create parts from original music.
