Re: Notation program...

But what's the point of removing that rest and moving the barline? Dorico is able to provide much more useful help by semantically understanding notation and providing contextually appropriate help, which other apps cannot do, because they provide no help at all, just let you type stuff in and move ...

Re: Notation program...

Yes, you can use the Remove Rests command to remove all implicit rests. Of course, there are other ways to achieve particular results, for instance, there is a built-in method for creating manuscript paper.

Re: Notation program...

it's some totally different logic that I personally don't like. That's the point. Everyone who has ever tried to write notation software has done it in entirely different ways. There is no Platonic ideal of ultimate logic in notation software. Just different choices. Dorico handles rests the way it...

Re: Notation program...

Because you are more adaptable than a mechanical tool. People think in different ways. It's impossible for software to adapt to each user's ideas about how it should operate; and much easier for people to learn how to use the tool. Like any application, it was designed and thought up by people ("how...

Re: Notation program...

Can someone check this in Doric please yours? These are screenshots from Dorico. They tell me these breaks can’t be erased in any way! Neither Ctrl-X nor Del etc. What exactly is it about? But if that’s true, (I’d like you to check out these simple things in Dorico), why can’t such a simple thing b...

Re: Dorico cross-grade promotion

Can't you just un-register and re-register every time you use another computer? Is that possible? You can request "reactivation" codes to activate Dorico on a new computer, though there are limits to the number of times you can do it. The newly activated installation is then the registered one. Fro...

Re: Dorico cross-grade promotion

Is it possible to have Dorico running on two computers simultaneously without extra cost? I often work on two for practical reasons related to heating my house in winter &c. Or does Dorico still have restrictions in this respect? You have two choices. Either 'hold' the licence on a USB dongle, and ...

Re: Dorico cross-grade promotion

Indeed it is tempting. What's more tempting is this sentence in Daniel's blog (emphasis my own): "For Finale, you must have a full license for any version of the full Finale package from version 1.0 to Finale 26 . Cut-down versions of Finale such as Allegro, PrintMusic, Finale Guitar, Finale Songwr...

(Screenshot of Abou...
