1a: Installing plugins
After having engraved a score, I follow a step by step outline to make the score publishing/printing ready. The 1st step is creating and importing the publisher’s house style. But before doing anything I recommend to install three very handy plugins:
This plugin presents a list of text, system text, and lyrics that are present in the current selection, and allows you to filter specific styles in the selection.
This plugin splits the current score into a number of separate movements scores, based on the location of bars marked as Section Ends.
This plugin Makes a copy of a score, or of the music contained within a passage selection, deleting previous versions. It then optionally randomized the pitches and text of the score and all the parts, effectively hiding the music while retaining its general structure. It could be useful for posting a score on a web page so that someone can debug problems.
For help with installing, please visit this page: how to install plugins.
In the next post we will have a look at templates.
Have a great day!
