Adding instrument filters

You can add any number of instrument filters to each layout independently.


  • You are in galley view.

  • The instrument filter overlay is shown.


  1. In Write mode, open the layout to which you want to add instrument filters.
  2. Select at least one item belonging to each instrument you want to include in the instrument filter.
  3. In the instrument filter overlay, click Add Instrument Filter .


A new instrument filter containing the selected instruments is added to the layout open in the music area. Dorico Pro automatically activates instrument filters in the layout and selects the new instrument filter.

  • You can also add, edit, and delete instrument filters in the Manage Instrument Filters dialog.

  • You can assign key commands for up to ten instrument filter presets on the Key Commands page in Preferences. The instruments filtered by these commands vary in each layout and project.
