I work mainly in the classical contemporary music scene; the scores and parts we have to do usually challenge the most usual functions of score editors. I’m not very interested on playback capabilities, but I’m strongly interested in the graphic aspect of the program. I would like to know if Dorico will be prepared for a high level of customization or if it will be oriented for a more common styles of music. I have some questions, I apology if some of them have already been asked:
1- Will the program be able to include graphics and deform them in an easier way?
2- Will Dorico be able to change noteheads easily? Will the native font include unusual noteheads as harmonics, semiharmonics, squares, triangles, etc? Will we be able to use other fonts? There will be a possibilty to include user-createds graphics as notehead?
3- Will Dorico have an in-program basic graphic editor?
4- Will users be able to create articulations and other score elements with graphics, or maybe only fonts will be available for that purpose?
5- Will all kind of rhythmic strange tuplets be possible? Tuplets inside tuplets? All kind of metric measurements? Will time measures be able to be faked? for example showing 4/4 but using different notation values larger than 4 quarter notes? Believe me there are not so unusual scenarios where that’s needed!
6- Will the user have the option to do personalized lines, like arrows, lines made with graphics, lines with symbols or letters at the beginning, the end above or under?
7- Will all this functions be present since the launch of the program?
Thank you for your attention.
