To add to the useful files and information that you might like to use with Dorico, we have created a Quick Reference Card. This is intended to stand on your desk as a useful reminder of key commands in Dorico.
You can pick one of these cards up if you are attending a Dorico session, or if you want to download and print it yourself you can do that too!
There is one version (to print & fold) and an A3 version for schools and educational institutions to put on the wall. (Right-click and ‘save as’ to download.)

If you’d like a version of the quick reference card in an alternative language, please get in touch on email@example.com
If you are just starting out with Dorico and want to try a little directed project to learn some common key commands please see the ‘Getting Started with Note Input‘ article.

Fantastic resources and great work by the team in all departments! Kudos!
I’m working with Dorico Pro2 on iMac.
Please, could you tell me What is the Shortcut keyboard for the Staccato Tenuto (One point with a trait on top) because
with ! as indicated, it doesn’t match… I have tried with Option or Command or Shift or Control with ! but in vain…
Thank you very much for your answer.
Franck Douvin, composer
@Franck: What keyboard language are you using? You should be able to find the correct shortcut in the Key Commands page of Preferences by typing “staccato tenuto” into the search box.
The A4 versiondoesn’t fit on an A4 paper….
Ah yes, I’ll change the labelling of that link, sorry. It is printed larger than A4 so you’d need to scale it to fit when printing – apologies!
I really like this resource. However, I’m using a different (custom) keyboard, and many of the hotkeys don’t match this chart. Are you able to share an editable version of the quick reference cards?
The pdf Quick Reference Card is really useful – a great help when one has just stared using a trial version of Dorico to see how easy it is to convert from Sibelius
Has anyone thought of making a special Dorico USB keyboard that could be purchased with everything layed out on it?
You can check on these to help you using Dorico.
Don’t forget the YouTube chanel
Keyboards and covers
For Stream deck
Metagrid for iPad
These look fantastic. Will you be providing one for a wireless iPad Pro keyboard?
@Edna: That’s a good idea. We’ll talk about it!
Thanks for these; super useful.
I’ll be sharing these with my pupils, who I’m encouraging to use Dorico for iPad.
Could you add the H shortcut for switching between the hand and marquee tools?
