Dorico update 1.2 available

December 5, 2017


Today we are happy to announce the availability of Dorico 1.2. This is the sixth update to our new professional scoring application. Version 1.2 boasts unique features for smart score preparation, with cues in instrumental parts that are dynamically linked to their source material. Also, this update provides flexible unpitched percussion as well as publication-quality fingering for piano and other instruments.

Other new features include:

  • Change the graphical size of practically any item in the music with new custom scaling properties.
  • New time-saving tools for building chords via a dedicated popover, allowing you to add octaves, thirds or sixths – or even to produce block voicings – above and below in just a couple of key strokes.
  • Support for shape note or Sacred Harp notation, with comprehensive support for the four- and seven-shape systems widely used in community singing groups in the United States and elsewhere.
  • Support for Figurenotes© colours, a system for colouring notes according to pitch that is widely used in education, particularly for students with accessibility or special educational needs.
  • Many user interface improvements, including more consistent use of user-chosen measurement units throughout the program, print preview improvements, quick hiding of signposts, quick switching between the full score and the appropriate part layout with a single keypress, and more.

Dorico 1.2 also includes dozens of further improvements and fixes. This update is recommended for all Dorico users, and is available for download from our website. For detailed information, please refer to the corresponding version history on the download page.
