Adding/Editing mutual exclusion groups in expression maps

By default, Dorico Pro automatically defines mutual exclusion groups. You can create new and edit existing mutual exclusion groups in individual expression maps manually.


  1. Choose Library > Expression Maps to open the Expression Maps dialog.
  2. In the expression maps list, select the expression map to which you want to add mutual exclusion groups or whose existing mutual exclusion groups you want to edit.
  3. Optional: If Auto is activated in the Mutual Exclusion Groups section, deactivate Auto.
  4. Optional: If you want to add a new mutual exclusion group, click Add in the Mutual Exclusion Groups column action bar.
  5. Enter a name for the new mutual exclusion group in the dialog that opens.
  6. Click OK to add the group and close the dialog.
  7. In the Mutual Exclusion Groups column, select the mutual exclusion groups whose playback techniques you want to change.
  8. Change the playback techniques in the selected mutual exclusion group in any of the following ways:
    • To add new playback techniques to the mutual exclusion group, click Add in the Has techniques column action bar to open the Playback Technique Combinations dialog, select the playback techniques you want to add, then click OK.

    • To remove playback techniques from the mutual exclusion group, select them in the Has techniques column, and click Delete in the action bar.

  9. Click OK to save your changes and close the Expression Maps dialog.
