The Dorico 4.2 update makes it easier to edit the music on drum sets and other percussion kits directly in the Key Editor. Among other improvements, Dorico 4.2 also improves the way the Key Editor works in linked mode.
Dorico 4.1 further refines the Key Editor, improves the user interface with more color options, overhauls the way lyrics are treated, prints selected flows in a layout, and adds new effects plug-ins and a library export function. Plus, a lifetime unlock option for Dorico for iPad.
The most recent updates to PlayScore 2 support lyrics, guitar chords, and multi-measure rests. A count-in feature, better rehearsal instrument support, and more improvements are also included. Plus, a preview of what’s to come.
Conquer the powerful Lyrics tool in Finale and you’ll be a master. We start with the “Type Into Score” feature and go on to much more in this series of video tutorials.

A series of notation conventions has been established over the years to identify editorial content. For the creators of critical editions, we take a comprehensive look at Dorico’s formidable set of tools for making editorial marks.
Three significant improvements to lyrics have been made in Dorico 3. Syllabic pasting, a new Edit Lyrics dialog, and adjusting lyrics on a line-by-line basis make working with lyrics faster and easier.
Dorico’s various dialog boxes, known as editors, allow users to easily customize areas of notation for specific types of scores. We explore the notation of a Handel secular cantata and an “ars subtilior” virelai. In both instances, Dorico is up to the task.
