Text formatting

Dorico combines different settings for the appearance of text, meaning that you can format fonts and texts in different places depending on their function.

For example, you can change the font family used for all text in your project in the Edit Font Styles dialog, and then make specific changes for when that font is used for titles in the Paragraph Styles dialog.

Paragraph styles apply to whole text frames or all text within a single text object. Character styles apply to individual selections, meaning you can apply different character styles to each word within the same text frame.

Font styles apply to items that use text but are not text frames or text objects, such as tempo marks and dynamics.
