Re: Typesetting em dashes in lyrics - best solution?

Coming a bit late here… I agree with liuscorne, and I'd probably prefer to center the em dashes between the surrounding words. They are long enough to be easily discerned from hyphens. I just wanted to add that in any case I would make sure the syllables or words are centered under the notes and not...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Are you saying if I suddenly have 3 solo violins with their own staves and a gli altri stave, I can't bracket the 3 solos? No indeed, you can't. Your 3 solo violins and the gli altri staff and (!) the second violins will all be bracketed together just because they're all playing the same instrument...

For those that have tried it, is the copy protection scheme the same? Do you still need a dongle if you want to use it on a desktop and a laptop?
Yes. The copy protection scheme hasn't changed.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

So do I! I'm currently reengraving a classical score and parts (Brahms Haydn variations) for my own practical purposes and the way everything just falls into place astonishes me again and again. I get a beautiful score that looks warmer and more balanced than every computer engraved edition of the v...

How about:
Completely independent time signatures (at least visually), completely independent bar-lines (at least visually)?
What exactly do you mean?

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

The only concern about Dorico (a pure visual concern) is - the slur. It has some "odd shapes" that remind me of Sibelius. That depends on your settings. You can produce beautiful slurs with Dorico, even by default. I'm not a fan of the factory settings either… LARGE TIME SIGNATURES: there is no exa...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Until the inclusion of such a feature, you'll need to work around this by creating separate flows or projects for your parts. Actually, all you need to do is create an additional player for the combined staff and exclude the single players from your print score layout. With the new Reduce feature i...

Re: Finale or Sibelius

Thanks again, Jan, for taking the time to make this clear! Now that I read your explanation I seem to remember that I knew this once. Well, never mind. I can imagine that making old software multi-threaded is very difficult. This must be a change that goes deep into the basic architecture of the app...

Re: Finale or Sibelius

And there is one thing one may not forget: Finale is single-threaded. Oh, is it? I was assuming that they had changed that with the move to 64 bit in v25. Isn't 64 bit synonymous with multi-threaded? It seems I need to improve my general IT knowledge. Anyway, your hint about the single-threaded ben...

Re: Dorico 1.2 released

It’s a bit difficult to explain. It basically means that Dorico will draw evenly tapered slur shapes – like Finale does.
Right now, if you examine Dorico’s slur shapes carefully, you can see where the outline of the skeleton line and the outline of the tapered shape cross.
