Dorico forum?

Post by David Ward » 11 Feb 2019, 21:04

Is there a Dorico users' forum as such?

If not which is the most useful forum to monitor if one wants to assess whether or not one might one day succumb and transfer to using it?

I feel very reluctant to make the change from Finale, despite all the frustrations, as a) I'll probably have to keep up-dating Finale for as long as I can to edit those of my scores which have already been typeset in Finale, and b) learning new software of such complexity at my age (due to be 78 before the end of the month) is likely to be a major bloody nuisance with all sorts of potential pitfalls; but…

Hi David. Jump on in, the water's fine. I have been devoting most of my free time to the 30-day trial and enjoying it a lot. Dorico is complex, but quite logical and fairly intuitive. And when it becomes arcane, Daniel and the kind forum members are there to help.
