That’s one of the folders that’s virtually identical in the Sibelius version of Notation Express. The “holes” are where, in the Sibelius version, Philip has Metronome Mark and Rehearsal Mark (restart). I envisaged a user-base for Notation Express for Dorico that included a fair number of people who are switching from Sibelius (or have to use both programs, and who are already using the Notation Express for Sibelius, so that’s why the holes are where they are: Dorico doesn’t differentiate between textual tempo markings and metronome markings, and it can’t easily restart rehearsal marks (at least not without some extra fiddling in the Properties panel).

I actually had a back-and-forth with Leo about whether we should include key signatures and in the end decided against it, since most people aren’t changing key signatures all that often. This was before the XL came out, though, with all that space, so I might be inclined to give it a second look… for now you can certainly add the popover shortcut on your own and I’d be happy to work up an icon for it.

Here's an icon for you. I'm not sure that the Tempo Text folder is the right place for it, but hey, why not for now, until (unless) it's properly included.

Just a brief update to say that I've created several more icons, including some transport controls, letter names for note input, and other miscellanies.

Got my Stream Deck XL this week and just purchased Notation Express (didn't open it up to now). I got NE mainly for the icons as I know that it's optimized for English keyboards and the mid sized Stream Deck. And meanwhile I have a couple of own Dorico key commands I want to keep.
But just before I start to get lost in customisation: Will there be soon a Notation Express version for the XL? Or does it already work with the XL?

Philip and I have discussed it. I’ll have a chance to give it further thought by the end of next week - June thus far has been a bit too busy...

Thank you Dan. I've made use of some of those. Finally got my SD profile to just include the things I won't do from the keyboard.

btw. How can I save all the changes I make so I don't lose them when I need to reinstall things? So the icons and new short cuts?

In rhe Stream Deck configuration app, you can export profiles. So it's quite easy to export and backup 😉

A couple more icons, this time for some German lyric entry. :)

I also added the French special characters (the ones that aren't on the English keyboard, I mean), as well as several characters I use often:

- en and em dashes
- copyright symbol
- curly quotes and apostrophe (instead of tick marks)

This is a good idea! I will add some useful glyphs too (flat, sharp, short unbreakable space, hyphen...), all unicode glyphs I use quite often. This will make the Stream Deck unavoidable 😅

Dan! I have gone a ways down this road on the suggestion of a Windows user. On Mac these characters are easier to type, which is why it hadn't occurred to me before. Nice!

Philip, do you find those characters easy to type on Mac? I've found that Dorico (or rather Qt) can't deal with the press-and-hold method...

Well, easier than dealing with a random 4-digit code which is I think how it's done on Windows. Even if you can't use the press-and-hold method (because it results in multiple keystrokes) you can still use the older "option" method, i.e., for é you type Option-e and then the letter e, for è you type Option-backtick (at least on a US keyboard) and then the e, etc.

Logically spoken, I don't think that it is possible.
But can you assign written playing techniques like 'con sord, pizz, col legno, sul tasto etc' to the Stream Deck with Notation Express? That would help so much for orchestra composing.
Or generally spoken you can only assign the things to the Stream Deck which you can use with shortcuts in Dorico?

You don’t think what’s possible? Yes, you can assign playing techniques, and indeed Notation Express already has things like pizz. and arco.

wow.....thanx Leo. I just like to use my keyboard shortcuts cause I'm travelling a lot with small laguage and if i would use the stream deck for them, i would forget a lot of them. but if you can use Stream Deck for playing techniques, that'll fasten up my workflow a lot.

Is it also possible to assign it to newly created playing techniques?

Yes. You just program a “multi”, which first types Shift+P, then types your playing technique and hits Enter.

Sorry Leo to ask again but it's quite some money for the XL...can I program everything in a way that I only have to push 1 button on the stream deck and not always have to enter the whole words like 'col legno, etc '. Or Stream Deck only replaces the 'Shift+P-Action'? That's hopefully my last question ;)
Thanx a lot

The multi-action does just that. It types Shift+P, then it types col legno, then it hits Enter.
You push precisely one button.
