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...

Re: Tantacrul Dorico video

I laughed out loud during the buttons to activate buttons to activate buttons episode There is actually a good reason for the "activate buttons to activate buttons". What the first checkbox does is tells Dorico that you wish to override the option vs. using the engraving defaults. If the option is ...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

He's talking about this I think: http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.19/Documentation/snippets/simultaneous-notes#simultaneous-notes-combining-two-parts-on-the-same-staff You would have to manually override the markings for it to be really usable - it doesn't appear to do things like 1. 2. or 1.2. - only Sol...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

I had a student who used Lilypond once a few years ago, a better student than most in terms of capability, and quite intelligent. He was stuck on Lilypond because he heard from so many others it was better and was convinced that it should do a better job for him, and stubbornly refused to consider a...
