Re: Dorico 3 Launch

Hi benwiggy, Two minor remarks regarding the guitar/tablature part: https://www.scoringnotes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/guitar-20-1024x231.png 1. The ottavation is missing on the trebble clef (on purpose?). 2. Finger #0 is a nonsense (but fret #0 could be understandable for the tablature). Some ...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

[...] Consider Dorico's new star feature: playing in chords to several different parts at once, and having them appear condensed on the score and separate in the parts automatically. This is exactly what computers should be doing for us. [...] Actually LilyPond is doing this... since the first rele...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

Hi canonperpetuus, [...] About 5 years ago I obtained a copy of SCORE (with PDF user guide and manual) from an acquaintance and have used it in DOS-BOX running on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines.

Re: Key signature and staff size

[...] In the first of the following examples, the spacing is set at .08 space which looks OK to me. It might even go up a little. The second example is set at .2 space, which for me is too large. I too was surprised at how small the acceptable range is. Of course, I couldn't keep the larger key sig...

Re: Key signature and staff size

[...] i don't think that the presence or absence of the time signature should have any influence over the spacing of the smaller key signature. [...] Ok. [...] Rule 2 might concern the spacing of the accidentals in the smaller key signature. The standard spacing according to Ross, Gould and the Fin...
