Select a voice on one stave; top, bottom note in a chord

Post by mipi » Sun Mar 05, 2017 11:54 am

Hi, I would like to ask if there is some way in Dorico to select a particular voice on a same stave? Is there some possibility to select a top, bottom or even 2nd, 3rd voice in a chord? It is very useful functionality in Sibelius which I couldn't fin on Dorico. Is it solved in some other way? Did I miss something?
Thank you

Not yet, but we intend to add such filtering functions soon.

Just to stress an importance of such functionality. I tried to move from Sibelius to Dorico today. Unfortunately unsuccessfully again. Dorico is great to compose but still not that much usable for arrangements. Working with XML files a priority task for me (I guess for other users as well) is to extract a particular voice from one stave, which contains 2 or more voices. For example arrangement for string orchestra, wind ensemble or symphony orchestra using as initial material a piano score etc..I hope so much such filtering functionality (select 2nd, 3rd voice, select bottom, second note in chord etc.) will come already with a NEXT (!) Dorico update:)

mipi, let us not stress "our" team. There are other people expecting other things and we can not really speed up the developement this way. If you are happy with the arrange functionality in Sibelius, why not keep using it? At the end you can always import the result via XML into Dorico ;-)
