cue sized notehead

Postby k_b » Mon Jun 19, 2017 12:45 pm

Hello,

wouldn’t it be a good idea for the meantime to offer a „Cue sized“ notehead in the Notehead Menu?

This would give us an easy workaround to produce cue notes - until there is a fully functional cue system incorporated into Dorico.

Daniel has said time and time again that they are taking the chance to build from the bottom up the best, most robust implementations they can, so I don't think they will provide such a workaround. However, given how much feedback we're giving, I would imagine that there is a very good chance the team will work on cue notes next.

  • My Dorico tends to crash while attempting to pull the preview for selected pages in Print Mode

Cue-sized noteheads have other legitimate uses, apart from "faking" cues. Chopin Prelude Op 28 No 8, for example...

Although "default noteheads" - as opposed to the "large" ones which are actually the real default - are not quite as small as cue notes, they can still be used to approximate the Chopin.

And that's why we need such noteheads. There are also other situations where they are used.

I agree wholeheartedly, I just meant that I imagine both situations will be tackled at once!

I'm not at home right now, so I can't include a screenie to show you what it looks like, but I've been using one of the diamond-shape note heads to approximate cues, and of course I add text to show which instrument is being cued. Even though I haven't found a way to put the normal rest in to show it's just a cue and shouldn't be played, I find that it "intuits" quickly and easily from a player's perspective.
