Flows are separate spans of music within your project, for example, movements or songs.

Every project contains at least one flow, and by default, every layout includes the music from every flow in your project. If you create a new flow in Dorico Pro, the following happens:

  • All music that you write for the new flow is automatically included in the existing full score and instrumental part layouts. You can exclude any flow from any layout by deactivating the respective flow card.

  • All players are assigned to the new flow. You can exclude players from the flow by deactivating the respective player card.


    If you exclude a player from a flow, any notes that you have already input for that player in that flow are deleted.

You can change certain options in each flow independently in the Notation Options dialog.
