Re: First time using Dorico. How did I do?

Well done! You've certainly got the hang of it within the demo period! I hope you enjoyed it. Have you manually adjusted the height of the top system on some pages? For instance pages 4 and 5, it's nice, but page 6 is much higher, and 10 is too high for all the text. I would remove the manual adjus...

First post: Feedback on a score (typesetting, fonts, cover, etc)

Hi! I'd like to share the score of a piece I wrote a few months ago. I'd like feedback on the music typeset, the fonts used, and the cover.
