We layer on the knowledge in these tutorials, starting with the basic properties of layers and how to navigate between them, and then move on to hiding and showing layers and working with their advanced options.

Beginning in the 3.5 update, Dorico officially added support for note input using pitch-before-duration, fulfilling a request of many users coming from other notation software accustomed to this entry method.

Steinberg has released Dorico 3.5, a major upgrade to its scoring program. Pitch-before-duration note input, semantic figured bass, line style editors, and condensing for section players are among the dozens of new features and improvements.
The Sibelius plug-in Create Tuplets Different Units automates the entire process of creating a tuplet where the “numerator” and “denominator” do not share an equivalent unit, such as two quarter notes in the space of three eighth notes.
