I would like to see Dorico offer immediate playback, from anywhere in a score, with the ability to stop and start playback as absurdly often and as quickly as I like. Playback also should not be a modal process (it must be in its own thread), so as not to stop me from performing other UI actions during playback. This is certainly possible.
How likely is it that Dorico will include this feature as described above?
(I understand that Dorico has been conceived as an engraving tool, as opposed to a composition tool. So any remarks as to its slowness, particularly regarding features related more to composition than to notation, should be taken with that in mind, and with thanks for all the hard work involved.
Searching for slowness in the UI lead me to several posts such as this one:
Instead of adding to that or other threads which are about slowness in the UI generally, I want to open up the specific topic of playback responsiveness.)
