Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

If you're wondering why I use MuseScore, it's mostly open source fanaticism (though not full Stallman), although I do think it's a good program which can surely compete with the versions of Finale and SIbelius from when they conquered the market, if not their current incarnations - although Dorico ...

Re: MuseScore 3.0 released

You can read more here: http://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=341 It would be great to hear how you use ...

Re: A Thickness Illusion: Horizontal Is Perceived as Thicker than Vertical

It is definitely clear that some publishers provide heavier bar-lines in order to compensate the visual thickness with the staff lines. Personally I have used it and it shows a wonderful result.

Re: Score Music Fonts and Score Layout

The best practice is to use 100% size in Finale, and than reduce the staff size into mm, as it is the standard measuring unit. For instance, I always use 6.8mm for parts, except for Cb or Perc or likewise that is 7.0mm, on the NE paper-size (240*320mm). In general you need 24 pt music font, almost a...

Re: Score Music Fonts and Score Layout

I am bit confused by the settings you use. I would suggest that you post a page, preferably as a picture or PDF.
