I have not started to use Dorico for real, since I’m waiting for functionality crucial to me.
However, I opened the program today just for fun, and was immediately struck (again…) by some UI peculiarities:
Why is the font size in the fly-out menus different than in the menu bar?
I’m using a 1080 resolution and the panels on the sides and bottom are too big. I realize that UI scaling is usually a problem with hi-res screens, but In my case, there’s just too much grey in the picture and not enough white, it’s distracting from the score.
And a minor point:
3. Why do the note heads in the left panel have different sizes?
Of course nothing in 1. above has any impact on how well the program works in itself, but it bothers me and I think it looks inconsistent. And 2. makes me feel claustrophobic…
Maybe it’s early days enough so that these things can still be changed for the better?
Keep it up and thanks for Dorico!
