- There is no requirement to use time signatures or meter, simply input your music without worrying about bars or barlines.
- Force accidentals to be shown or hidden.
- Hide stems to show only noteheads.
- Make music items larger, by any percentage.
- Use noteheads that display the pitch of the note.
- Remove Rests so they simply do not appear in your music.
- Hide Time Signatures – you may need to adjust note spacing (see below) in order to retain a space to write one in by hand.
- Delete barlines wherever necessary, without the need to rewrite lots of music.
- Use hidden Coda sections to create gaps between questions.
- Adjust Note Spacing to position music items exactly where you need them.
- Set the barline used at end of flow. Choose from single or double barlines, or even no barline at all.
Can’t hear the sound on these videos
@Orlando: Don’t worry, there is no sound. These are prepared primarily for our social media accounts, and we don’t use sound for them as most people keep the sound off when scrolling through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. So you’re not missing anything!
Hello, is there a way to hide barlines at the end of every staff? in the example in the video there are double lines, is it possible to leave it open without barlines?
@Tommaso: You can use an open meter, which will result in barlines only appearing where you specifically add them. If you’re not sure how to achieve this, pop along to the Dorico forum and we’ll be happy to help.
Hi, I am an ear-training teacher, and I am trying to make a worksheet for dictations. So I need to write the beginning note of each dictation, but not show any rests for the rest of the system. I can “remove rests,” from the edit menu, but then all of the bar lines get shoved off into the right sight of the system. Of course, I need the bar lines to stay in place, and I cannot figure out how to do that.
Also, since I am putting the first note of each dictation there, the first measure of each dictation is graphically much bigger than the others (because of the rests that automatically fill the rest of the measure). I need all measures to be the same size so that there is enough space for students to write out the dictation. Thank you!
@Patrick: When you use Remove Rests it really does get rid of them altogether, which also results in Dorico no longer having any reason to space out the whole bar. So you might find it easier to select those rests and setting the Custom scale property to 1% in Properties rather than using Remove Rests.
