Re: Piano - trills-question

If you put it all on one staff, the right hand would have the stems up and the left hand stems down and the position of the trill symbols would be as you show them in your example. No rests would be necessary or desirable. If you feel that it shows the melodic connection better to stem it as shown o...

Re: Piano - trills-question

That works, and is better than putting it all on one staff, but I would prefer a standard tremolo indication, which might make it clearer that you want each group to end with the auxiliary and not with the principal tone, if that is indeed what you want. Pianists have to make a judgement call about ...

Re: Piano octaving

Much better to do it like the first example. Only use octave signs when the notes would otherwise involve many ledger lines, especially in the lower staff.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

The team are doing a marvellous job of producing a product that is functional within limits, and then they continually expand the circle of its feature set. Critics say "oh, it can't do this, and it can't do that; and you had to pay for v2's additions": but it's had three significant updates since ...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Somehow it seems like all the dynamics are little too much to the right I always thought that the optical centers in Bravura were a little off My main complaint is that Dorico puts the tr symbol left-aligned, rather than centred It is interesting that there seems to be general agreement that there ...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

the setting for stem direction on middle line is set to "Determine by context". Dorico apparently looks ahead to m. 27. If I change the first note of m. 27 to an f#, that will flip stems in m.16-27. If I set it to "Use default direction" stems will be down from 16-33. M. 90 and ms 137-144 -- Dorico...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Regarding the stem direction, I cannot remember having flipped any of them. If you can specify where you mean, I can check if the default is overridden or if the praise indeed is on me First mov. m. 16 etc.: Stems down for the middle line note is the current standard practice, except when context d...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

It's very nice, Harpsi. I noticed some minor things that I will mention, on the assumption that it is an example of Dorico defaults, with the exception of the edits you listed. 1. Many of symbolized eighth note appoggiaturas seem a bit far from the principal notes to me. For example in the second mo...

Affinity Publisher Public Beta

Many have been waiting for Affinity Publisher as a replacement for InDesign, and a public beta has just been announced. I will wait for the finished product. However, I would be very interested in early impressions of Affinity Publisher from more courageous members of Notat.io, particularly as a too...
