Using MuseScore

Nathan Hale
Hi all!

My name is Nathan Hale, and I've just downloaded and been using MScore
0.9.1. I wanted to congratulate everyone involved on a great release.
I first started playing with MScore some time ago, and I am mightily
impressed with the rapid progress that this project is making. As a
current graduate student is Music Theory/Composition, I think that
MScore will be very much appreciated by musicians everywhere.

As far as music notation editors for LInux go, I think this is by far
the most feature rich and mature one...once I read the documentation,
I was able to start scoring right away! I love how easy you've made
sound setup as well. I have been using NoteEdit, which while a fine
program, requires several steps to get sound working.  MuseScore works
with no extra steps on my part and no requirement to load jack/qsynth.
Thanks!

I do have a couple suggestions that I think would enhance the
typesetting/composing experience even further:

1) A bit more stability. The application seems fairly stable and has
clearly come a very long way from the last time I checked it out, but
it did crash on me once or twice during pretty normal operations. The
first time, I was creating a custom score and choosing instruments,
then clicked to continue and the program crashed. The second time, I
simply pressed play to hear some notes I had entered.

2) Notes seem to cut off a bit early during playback. For instance, I
had a melodic line composed of 4 half notes, and each half note seemed
to cut off on the "and" of the second beat. I think the sound should
carry a bit closer to start of the next note. Of course we don't want
them slurred, but they don't seem to be held for their full value.

3) A linear view. I love the fact that this application is wysiwyg,
but sometimes being able to view the score completely linearly would
be nice.

Well, that's my 2 cents. Thanks again for the great app, and please
let me know areas where you need help! I'm not a programmer, but I
would very much like help out with project if I can, because I sense
it is and will continue to be very helpful for musicians that need a
free (as in beer & speech) music notation editor.

I can't offer much support on your question since I'm a regular user as well, but there is one thing we can do to make the work of the developers a bit easier. When you report a bug:
1. make sure you test with the most recent build. (lastest windows build: http://prereleases.musescore.org/mscore-r733.exe)
2. try to report the bugs in such a way that they can be reproduced. Write down the steps and try to reproduce it yourself at least once following your won steps. It looks like much hassle, but it pays off when the bug is getting fixed.

Hi Nathan,

sorry for this late response.
Mscore has lots of bugs and small issues. Im working on this and hope
to get out a more stable version in the not so far future.
One problem i'm fighting with is that every new feature and all bigger
code changes break something other. If you use the program and want
to help please report every issue you see. A report is only useful
if you can reproduce a bug and explain it in a way i can reproduce it.

Notes are always played shorter on playback as they are notated.
This is controlled by a "gate time" paramter (0-100%). A staccato note
has a short gate time, a legato note a bigger one.
I plan to make this values configurable and collect them in a "play style"
similar to the "layout style".
The current values are bad choosen and are mainly for testing (to hear a
difference between staccato and tenuto).

For the linear view i saw that sibelius can do this. For mscore it has
low priority and i will consider it after a stable 1.0 release.

best wishes,
Werner

Re: Using MuseScore

Nathan Hale
Hi all,

Is there a way to easily copy and paste multiple measures? Copying and
pasting one measure is easy, but I can't for the life of me figure out
how to select multiple measures...shift+drag seemed to sort of work,
but I didn't get the solid blue border around the measures, and I
couldn't paste anything from my selection.

Hi Nathan,

the selection of measures/staves is extended by shift+click another staff.
Shift+right click to get the context menu and "coppy/cut" without changing
the selection.
Pasting more than one staff is not possible in revision < 789.

Re: Using MuseScore

Nathan Hale
Thanks for the reply! I'm still having trouble though. Let me see if I
can describe this better:

When I shift-click on a measure, it is surrounded by a solid blue box.
When I then keep the the shift key depressed and click on another
measure (same staff) the blue box is not extended, but the second
measure I clicked on turns blue. So I have a blue box around one
measure, and a blue background on the second. Then, with the shift key
still depressed, I right-clicked on the second measure to copy. But
when I do this, it turns back to the normal color, which seems to
indicate is no longer selected. Is this normal behavior? After
performing this procedure, I lift up off the shift key, and select the
measure where I would like to begin the paste. I right click and
select paste, and nothing happens.

I did see that my revision number is 646, however I am not trying to
paste multiple staves, just multiple measures.

Thanks,

Nathan
