1. By default, when you have created an item using the mouse, the pointer is cleared so you can continue with your work.
  2. Sometimes it can be useful to be able to create multiple items of the same type immediately after one and other without having to click the item in the music palette each time.
  3. There is a preference that allows you to do this in Dorico, found on the Note Input and Editing page. Check the option to ‘Allow multiple items to be created with the mouse’ to enable it.
  4. Now when you click to create an item in the music, your mouse pointer is reloaded with another item of the same type, so you can click to add that item at multiple locations across your score.
  5. This is available with many different types of music item, from dynamics to ornaments, playing techniques to barlines, and so on.
