I'm happy to share my profile here which was created on a Mac.

Dan's profile gave me a great start, but Marc is correct in that there is an incompatibility issue between Mac and PC for those files. Not only the AHK scripts, but the hot keys had to be re-input in order to work.

Here's a screen shot of what I now have - no pretty pictures, but very functional folders which contain most of what is relevant for me.

Dear David,
Thanks a lot. Indeed your shortcuts do work directly on my mac — except for the time signatures, I had to enter shift-M for each instance, but everything else seems to work.
I like the logic you put in that setup.
I have sent an email to Elgato, asking for Bravura text font to be included in the (numerous) fonts available in the icon maker tool. For now, I had to use Photoshop and it's quite long a process…
I think we're quite a number to think this device will increase the workflow in a quite impressive way !

Marc, did you try adding a Delay when programming the stream deck multi-action? This is usually necessary for the popover. You drag it in from the right column of actions. Typically 300 ms is adequate to allow the popover to work correctly.

Dear Dan,
Actually, I found that I could remove that delay… but I'm aware it could possibly go wrong without it. I'll try in real conditions when my next Dorico work comes. I'm familiar with that delay thing, it's sometimes compulsory when I program a macro in Keyboard maestro — I suppose it's the same with AHK on PC.

Glad you like this setup Marc, and it was a great idea to write to Elgato about the Bravura font. I tried many times to get it to work so that I could use it on the buttons, but to no avail. Hopefully they will add it.

I look forward to seeing how you tweak things and configure them for your own workflow.

I've added several more functions, including editorial and trumpet fingerings.

Here's a screenshot of all the functions, grouped into folders. I find that's easier, because when I'm starting a new project, I can copy and paste to the top layer whatever macros are most useful. Sometimes it's bowings, sometimes fingerings, etc. It not only copies the icon, but all the multi-functions that go with it.
Does this mean you change the stream deck's configuration on the fly? When you say "navigate to the PT folder" is this a folder you created with stream deck commands? I am unpacking my stream deck at this moment <rubbing hands together>
I'll save most of my questions until I have actually read the documentation and tried setting this up.

Thanks tons for sharing!

Yes! You can have folder, sub-folders, and sub-sub... you get the idea. I haven't tried going deeper than three levels yet, but that's all I need.

Ohhhhhhh... you are talking about navigating on the stream deck to submenus (folders) I thought you meant you would choose a different profile for stream deck based on the type of orchestration project you were tackling. Either way, I've just watched some tutorials and I have a better understanding of how it works.

I'm on a mac so can't use AHK. I haven't yet located a bonafide user manual so I'm very curious about using proper syntax for scripting the hotkeys. Any guidance here would be appreciated.

Is it possible to open submenus and make selections without something like AHK? For instance: Edit->Filter->Lyrics->Line 1

Thanks!

I’m not a Stream Deck user but I can’t see why you couldn’t use Keyboard Maestro in place of AHK - it’s what I use when on Mac...

I happen to own both Stream Deck and KM...
I'd say witj Stream Deck alone, as is, the easiest way (if not the only one) is to use keyboard shortcuts. You can chain those, but it's not as powerful as Keyboard Maestro.

I just downloaded all of Dan's images and scripts. It all makes sense now. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! This just improved my workflow 200%.
Love this.

We should all launch a crowdfunding site to raise money to purchase a nice dinner out for dankreider. :D

Well, actually there are so many on this forum sharing their knowledge we should settle for a collective pat on the back. David Hicken's scripts all work on my mac but I like Dan's icons. I have some work to do integrating this. Fun stuff.

Hi all SD Dorico user
does The Alt+Shift + arrow up combo work for you as a shortcut (for chromatic up)
here I always only get the diat up (Alt+Arrow up)
looks like SD doesnt send the "Shift" part of the combo
or Dorico doesnt see it
had to use a AutoHotKey workaround

Claude, it works for me.

I have found that Shift-Right doesn’t work in a stack (to select multiple notes as a multi-action. I contacted Stream Deck, and they were very responsive. They said they’d look at improving this in the future.

I’d recommend contacting their support via email. They’ve been great to work with.

Dear Dan,
I did contact them to ask them to add Bravura or Bravura text in the fonts available (to create icons) and they have been responsive… but they told me it would require some coding (?) and that it was not going to happen soon… :-/

Dear Dan, I've made a bunch of them (for Photoscore Ultimate) in Photoshop, but it would be really faster to have access to that font in their online tool!

Even without having a stream deck yet, I started programming the software, because that's the thing I always looked for to get my workflow flying …
Without this post I would be as slow as ever ;) ;-)

Hello,

Thanks to Dan for the Scoring Notes blog and the info about the Stream Deck, it just arrived from Amazon :) I have a Mac, so thank you to Kt-va for the Dropbox link, it was a great start!

I am trying to set up Filters on the Stream Deck. I am looking for a way to select from Dorico Edit menus (i.e., Right Click) but it doesn't seem to be Stream Deck hotkey option? So, is the way to go about to make a shortcut in Dorico for anything I want to add to the Stream Deck?

thanks!

You don’t need to use right-click. Filters can actually be assigned directly to key commands via Preferences. For example, I have assigned key commands to Filter Select, Filter Deselect, and a number of filters I use often. I think All Dynamics is something like Ctrl-Shift-F5 for me (because that’s what I assigned it to). There are tons of key command options available using Ctrl, Alt, Shift, and function keys, and the nice thing about the stream deck is that you don’t have to remember them all… You can just assign those key combinations to the stream deck icon of your choice.
