Have just spent a few hours looking at the demo (long time user of Finale and Sibelius etc). First impressions are very encouraging - having most recently created a full score of an extended multi-movement choral work in Sibelius I am loving the 'flows' concept which would have made that a whole lot easier! Anyway, I am trying Dorico out by working on a classical guitar score and want to add some horizontal lines to indicate that a particular series of notes should all be played on the same string. Whilst the string indication is easy to find I'm not seeing any means of adding a line or horizontal bracing of any kind? Does such a thing exist (yet)?

Although I am not generally in favour of the employment of workarounds, you can use pedal lines to fake up horizontal lines with brackets at one or both ends. The only problem is that they will play back as pedal lines! (I'm not sure if the 'Muted' property in the Common section of the Properties panel will correctly mute a pedal line.)
