Re: Dorico 3.5.10 released

ThnX tisimst To clarify further, Finale does not yet have full SMuFL support. As a result, Bravura needed certain modifications in order to work in Finale. Assuming that Finale does implement full SMuFL support at a later date, Aruvarb should become irrelevant (except for users of older versions of...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

His examples strikingly reminds me of Finale, I don't know why. It seems that the objects and lines are manually positioned very frequently with a great chance to get misplaced. I think this is what made Sibelius to take over Finale, and finally Dorico will take over Sibelius. Yes, I think this is ...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

The NoteAbility Pro developer is my thesis supervisor :) He is actually at least partially switching to Dorico for his own work, but is continuing NAP development due to the existing user base that relies on it. NAP is very good software, but I am a Windows user. You can probably get better examples...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

From the MuseScore 4 preview announcement: Tantacrul.PNG Although Tantacrul is clear in his reply to that comment regarding what he actually meant, I think some people will misread Tantacrul's video, like the user in the attached image, as "Tantacrul trashed Dorico, it is nothing to bother with if y...

Re: Finale 26.3

I agree, it would have been better for them to create a new app from scratch. If they had done that in 2010, things might be very different now. But when they are looking at the bottom line, I'm sure they are considering what is cheaper and less risky for them to do, and has greater profit margins i...

Re: Finale 26.3

The problem for MakeMusic is that they are dealing with a very old code base. How you would have built an application in the 90's from the ground up is not the same approach you would take today. Also, they did not integrate enough features into the core of the program - too many things were left to...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Yes, I saw that in the video, but I wasn't exactly sure how he did that. I don't recall ever having that happen to me. I tried to reproduce it in Dorico 3.5 and could not.

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Although as shown above, I disagree with Tantacrul's thesis overall, I did agree with a few aspects of Tantacrul's feedback: 1. Tantacrul only addressed this indirectly, but I think Dorico should have an optional wizard when creating a new score. The wizard would allow you to add instruments, set a ...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

Right, but it is actually two commands - one is the command to have that setting override the program default, and the next is what you want to override it to. I do not generally find myself having to click those boxes anyway because you usually should set the program defaults to do what you want by...
