Re: The Pointing Hand

Of course! ;)
I suppose you could even replace one of the boring common repeat markers with this one. Oh, and apply a nice color to it!

Re: The Pointing Hand

Well. The SMuFl committee seems to be aiming for utter completeness, and Ben has obviously got a valid source for that symbol, so we should probably raise an issue in the SMuFL repository! :)

Re: More Dorico updates!

If Affinity Designer does what AI does, than it is really a great price. Rumour has it that there are a few advanced features that expert users of AI miss in Affinity Designer – but I seriously doubt that you would ever need such features for music engraving. At any rate, the price is ridiculously ...

Re: More Dorico updates!

Although Inkscape does all I need I've recently switched to Affinity Designer and so far it's been worth the price. In fact it reminds me a bit of Dorico. Or rather, it shows what Dorico could be if the market for notation software was comparable to the market for graphic design, i.e. if Steinberg c...

Re: More Dorico updates!

Yes, I agree with Ben. Notating the first page in Dorico would be a piece of cake, a matter of minutes. The second page would be fiddly, to be honest. I’m not sure if it can be done without faking the barlines. Once there is support for different simultaneous tempos, this too will be a piece of cake...

Re: More Dorico updates!

Oh dear, oh dear: why was Dorico not around when I started computer notation? I'm soon to be 78 and realize I simply can't face learning new software to replace Finale, but am instead frustrating myself trying to revise a huge - gigantic, 16 very large files - piece originally typeset in Finale 201...

A music symbol editor, what is that?
