Align objects in Engrave mode?

Post by dankreider » Tue Apr 09, 2019 4:38 am

I imagine there's been a feature request for this, but I can't find it on the forum. So here's me, requesting.

Similar to the "align dynamics" function in Engrave mode, it would be wonderful to multi-select a variety of objects (text or tempo markings especially) and right-click--Align. Did I mention it would be wonderful?

Thanks for the consideration!

Also, random note of thanks: early Sunday morning... panicked realization that I need a violin part written ASAP. 5 minutes to pound it out, ZERO adjustments, printed beautifully, job done. You guys have made a beautiful thing.

We do intend to add further alignment tools in future, but it's not something we're actively working on right now.

I second this request. It's this (and a couple of text formatting style options) that's stopping me singing Dorico's praises to every composer I know. I'm working on theatre score and aligning all the cue titles with each other manually is a ball ache.

Welcome to the forum, hfmuso. Out of interest, what text formatting options are you missing?

Not OP, but for me, access to OpenType features. Dorcio has kerning and ligatures turned on by default (which is really great), but I would love access to authentic small caps, all caps, all small caps, alternate figures (such as oldstyle numerals), etc. Not the highest priority, but it would be quite nice.

(Excited for Thursday's announcement!)
