Just to add a tidbit or two, there is currently no way in Dorico to have 2 parts share a staff in the score and still have them go to separate parts.  As Steve says, it is actually pretty easy to write two separate parts, then add a third player. Select all the music from the two separate parts and Paste Special -> Implode into that third player.  And then include only that third player in the score layout.  But of course, any subsequent changes will not be synchronized.

I believe what Dorico is working on is a framework where you can tell the score layout to automatically combine certain players -- in other words, automating the process I described above, and automatically keeping things in sync.  This would be philosophically opposite the Finale approach.  In Finale, you write both players into a single staff and then tell Finale how to split that into two parts for printing.

My guess is that this will be in the next major (paid) release of Dorico, but I really have no way of knowing.  That's just a guess.  As you can imagine, there could be quite a lot of complication to this process.  The Steinberg team does a pretty good job of handling most of the complications by default and giving you tools to address the cases where the default behavior is not good enough.

Hi Christoper,

... Are you saying that Dorico handles two instruments per score staff, but 
with individual parts separated, including cues and solos, very well?
