Re: Annual Notation Software Survey

I have to agree with Octo - I haven't seen any large scores coming out of Dorico. Last time I tested Dorico, after 32 measures of a relatively simple quartet of single line instruments there were far too many basic notational errors that I simply could not overlook. Having to repeatedly fix really b...

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

Oh, I definitely agree, Wiggy, improvements will continue to be made. Dorico just hasn't reached my own standards for "which workarounds can I live with" yet. The ossias/divisis are brilliant, and I look forward to a time when I can use them in my work. My tests so far were disappointing enough to n...

Re: Making the switch to Dorico?

Dorico has a few things I really like (ossia, divisi), but can't do basic things like put accents outside the staff even when you tell it to do so and use the actual settings within the application that say "hey, we'll draw these outside the staff if you choose this option," draw basic lines without...

Re: Finale 26.1 released

Still haven't increased the frame limit? I'll stick with 25.

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

Just from a woodwind performance perspective, only the flute can accomplish what you are asking the winds to do.

Re: Finale update

I'm on Windows.

For me it's looking like the only feature upgrade is the revamped articulation bits.

Finale update

So... is anyone using the new Finale version just released?

Trying to decide if the features would simplify my workflow in any way, or just create new things to work around.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

But I simply can't use the application for any publishing right now in its current state. Out of curiosity, what program do you work with and what style of music? I'm currently using both Finale 2014.5 and 25 (finishing old projects in 2014.5). My music is probably best described as modern extended...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Two things off the top of my head: Accents appearing within the staff stem directions from the middle staff line Accents within the staff are certainly "allowed," but in practice, I would only do so in the most dire of circumstances; it's ugly, is visually confusing, and looks amateurish. If I'm pla...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I took the plunge and downloaded the trial. I like the whole 'ethos' of the application, but there are design decisions I don't like and cannot see past to work with. And I just can't work with an application where the default output is - in my eyes - wrong. I'd be interested in doing further work i...
