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...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

When using the new divisi feature, Dorico cannot add sub-brackets to, say, a divided Violin 1 section. Daniel Spreadbury has acknowledged this to me (in a comment on the Scoring Notes blog). This is one area where Finale outshines both Sibelius and Dorico. Are you saying if I suddenly have 3 solo v...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I also want to see how movement titles are handled in parts when they occur in the middle of a page. So many things I need to see before I even consider learning this program. There are lots of videos, but they all seem to be at such a superficial level that they don't really give information a powe...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Lots (and lots) of talk about scores, but I've yet to see any part samples coming from this product. Anyone using it care to share?

Re: "On cue"

Thanks for your arguments. This is a modern classical work; after weighing the options I ended up using "on cue" as is.

Thanks!

Re: "On cue"

I agree, but I'm trying to avoid using multiple mixed languages in the score. So my choices are Italian (all of the tempos and tempo changes), or French (the title pages, movement list, instrument names). I suppose French would work okay.
