Numbering instruments with different transpositions separately/together

You can change whether instruments are numbered separately or together in all staff labels project-wide when you have multiple instruments of the same type but with different transpositions, such as two Horns in F and two Horns in D. By default, Dorico Pro numbers instruments with different transpositions separately.

  3. In the Numbering section, choose one of the following options for Numbering for similar instruments with different transpositions:
