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?

Is there a way to set a "priority index" so that certain types of texts remain in the default position (higher priority), and other text (like chords symbols) move first (lower priority)?
Dorico (1 year ago)
No there isn't, although some items like lyrics and dynamics have options e.g. which one should be nearer the staff.
Dennis Larson (1 year ago)
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!

is there any way to change the font of the instrument names?
Dorico (1 year ago)
Yes, you can change them in Engrave > Paragraph styles and they are the 'staff labels'

Dorico thought of everything except music symbols.... what's up with that? You have to go to a web site, cut and paste the symbol you want to use then paste it in.... very cumbersome...
Dorico (1 year ago)
No, we just haven't implemented a proper music symbols feature for some symbols yet. One day.
