Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Apologies if I am over-zealous. I've spend years with Finale... Well said! And since I have followed you for years on another forums, I fully understand your position. I will definitely start using Dorico in years to come. Right now I need Finale for some extended notation, so I keep this project u...

Re: Legatos in the vocal music

… … … On further thought I don't see any compelling reason why in this instance you should not add legato slurs to groups of syllables. Interestingly, here in Boulez, he indeed uses slurs as the phrasing tool. It looks similar to what I would need. Boulez, Pli Selon Pli 3 This use of two levels of ...

Re: Legatos in the vocal music

The problem for me, in music I write now, is that without slurs you cannot really see the phrase. It is not a complex music at all, but long time signatures and long note-values tend to split the meaning of music. "molto legato" is an option where everything is legato as such; I am thinking more lik...

Legatos in the vocal music

I know that legato symbolises melismas, and all legato-ed notes are actually sung under one syllable. I wonder however what is the rule if I really want to have extremely legato on notes that are separated by each syllable? True, it is not "legato" if there is a new syllable that breaks vowel, but s...

Trill notes via Finale script

I want to create a script that would make a small trill notes. I need: Layer 3 to be used: noteheads to be reduced, stem removed, noteheads only black, and than horizontally moved. It worked earlier, but now in version 25 I have trouble. Anyone understanding where I am making mistake? (Solution pref...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

To add to all this: We all have different demands, but personally I must say that the time I save using Dorico's superior layout features is worth every single little tweak I have to do, and for my taste I do not have to do that many. I still have more control over small details settings in Finale ...

Re: Notation software user reviews

Very useful and interesting to read, indeed. Almost a projection for the future...
It is not only important for engravers and composers, but the research is of the outmost importance for the software developers in question.

Re: Short Slurs (Octaves)

Personally, I don't like Dorico-slurs (default). There is something odd with that, likewise with Sibelius - keeping in mind that same people developed it. Default slurs (if they are these above) are ugly, and I haven't seen these shapes in the older music literature. Such small slurs were punched, n...

Re: Sibelius and font kerning

Does kerning work with Lyrics in Sibelius? That could solve it- perhaps.
