I am working on my very first project with this magnificent program and yes, it’s already for large orchestra. Although I already had set a template that somewhat graphically fitted my company’s specific needs, along the way of actually doing my first score I made a lot of tweakings I definitely want to keep for other projects. There must be a way, otherwise Dorico would’nt be Dorico, to use your carefully considered tweaking to your own specific layout styles and engraving properties again and again on other files, weather that being a new file, a template or even an old file you’ld like to ‘pimp’. For example, in the ‘other’ program so called libraries would save and load apart from the core of the file, but then again this was just for articulations and so on. Dorico is much more intelligent and features much more possibilities, so I’ld expect that any tweaking of styles must be copyable into other files. I’m sure I’ve overlooked this possibility. Can you help me out?
Very helpful... but how do control the default space above the staff when creating text? I'd like it closer to the staff but can't find how to adjust the default position. I don't want to manually readjust every text entry. <edit> Whoops, I just found it in the Engraving Options. Sorry to bother!
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
