Re: More Dorico updates!

Thanks, Florian. That's good to know. I am planning to switch from InDesign to Affinity Publisher as soon as it goes on sale.

Re: More Dorico updates!

A notation software should be able to draw any line (InkScape-kind with numerous settings) and if not any curve (also similar to InkScape) I agree with you completely, OCTO. The notation software we are all looking for would have advanced graphic as well as advanced typographic capabilities. One ho...

Re: More Dorico updates!

I think your way to enter it is very efficient, and I don't know how quicker it would be to enter these. Thank you, OCTO. I would even be happy if Dorico could do almost as well as Finale, so I could make use of the many ways in which it apparently surpasses Finale. Once more we have to agree that ...

Re: More Dorico updates!

How do you enter these numbers now? etc. OCTO, I think I answered your question about my method of adding fingering with an example at: http://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=386&start=40 http://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=386&start=50 As far as I know, given the response to my query, Dorico still la...

Re: More Dorico updates!

Benwiggy, it is clear that the Dorico team has an ideal relationship with users and is very responsive to most requests. However, in this case, less so. Several months ago I described how difficult is was to accomplish complex piano fingering in Dorico with an example: https://www.steinberg.net/foru...

Re: More Dorico updates!

John R - There's improvements to Fingering, which may be helpful. The pace of development by the Dorico team is remarkable, and the new improvements to Dorico tempt me to give it another trial to see if I can use it. However, it wasn't clear to me from the review that it is possible to notate sever...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

OCTO, I was able to draw this using the line tool in Finale without "very large lines above the staff." "very large lines above the staff" are the way how MuseScore creates a line. Sorry, OCTO I misread the original post and thought you were referring to Finale. MuseScore would be impossible for me...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

Using a normal line, what we have in Finale, is also awkward, since it adds a very large line above the stave, so I need to resize each of them. Any change to the measure length misplaces the lines. I will try to find a solution by using a large zig-zag line. OCTO, I was able to draw this using the...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

OCTO, the MuseScore looks perfectly acceptable to me (except for the treble clefs :) .) But the dashed lines do look a little strange. Can one change the settings for those? I do like the spacing of the first three measures in the LilyPond better from the purely visual point of view, although I thin...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

That's really nice, Pierre. And so is the font. The left side of each slurs could be closer to the beams. And the trill accidentals look a little large to me. Are those things adjustable?
