Still in the learning process of Dorico after many years with Finale, and perhaps the biggest reason for leaving Finale was the lousy and time-consuming handling of drum cue notes. So I hope that Dorico does this better, but I can’t really make it work right now… First a question on size of voices: to achieve the following is not extremely difficult; select the notes to change and then use the scaling in the bottom panel.
But it is fairly tedious to select and resize, so hope there is a method for configuring the actual voice (preset) so that all notes entered in that voice assumes a certain size.
Second question: I want to set my drum cue notes to cue size (or some other size). Again, I can enter the notes, select them and resize (this example was done by adding a ‘slash instrument’ to the middle line of the percussion kit, and an upstem ‘tom’ on the top space).
But there are two problems, one is that rests do not seem to resize…??
And, the main question: how can I configure in a way that I easily can alternate between normal drum notation as in measure 1, with “normal” note sizes, and slash with cue notes as in measure 3 where the cue notes including rests already from the beginning are set to the selected size? In worst case that preset is not possible so that I will need to select and change size after input, how can I select only the cue notes (and not for instance the hihat notes, they should not be touched)?
This is something I need essentially every day…please make me happy Thanks //DT
