VST 2 / 3 indicator not shown

As opposed to Cubase, Dorico doesn’t show the diagonal markings with VST3 instrument names, so if there are both VST2 and VST3 versions of a synth in the VST rack (as its the case for most of my VSTis), trial and error is needed to find out which is which. I find this awkward.

You can explicitly block the VST2s you don’t need in Preferences>VST Plugins.

Right. Thanks, I’ll do that.
