What's New In Dorico Elements 2

Attach your video into your product and play it back with the dedicated video window.

The new smart staff management tools make it easy to lay out even the most complex music. You are now able to copy music from one instrument and paste it to another as slashes, change melodic material to slashes, or quickly input slashes with or without stems, and even automatically fill a range of bars with slashes. More updates include quicker ways to create bar repeats, automatic repeat structure playback, and support for 2 conventions of time signatures (one for the scoring stage, other for the concert hall).
