Re: Engraving in MuseScore

OCTO, I was able to draw this using the line tool in Finale without "very large lines above the staff." "very large lines above the staff" are the way how MuseScore creates a line. Sorry, OCTO I misread the original post and thought you were referring to Finale. MuseScore would be impossible for me...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

Using a normal line, what we have in Finale, is also awkward, since it adds a very large line above the stave, so I need to resize each of them. Any change to the measure length misplaces the lines. I will try to find a solution by using a large zig-zag line. OCTO, I was able to draw this using the...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

OCTO, the MuseScore looks perfectly acceptable to me (except for the treble clefs :) .) But the dashed lines do look a little strange. Can one change the settings for those? I do like the spacing of the first three measures in the LilyPond better from the purely visual point of view, although I thin...

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

That's really nice, Pierre. And so is the font. The left side of each slurs could be closer to the beams. And the trill accidentals look a little large to me. Are those things adjustable?

Re: Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

I don't think it's perfection that makes great art David, I agree. Perfection doesn't make a work of art great, and there are a lot of flawed masterpieces. My very point was that perfection in itself could even be a negative, but in the case of Mozart isn't, because there is so much else going on. ...

Re: Test topic.

Sorry everyone. I figured out what it was. This forum doesn't allow one to place single quotes around a word within a phrase in double quotes, at least when the word is at the end of the phrase so the single and double quotes are next to each other. Obviously, I can't post the example. I eliminated ...

Re: Beauty in a digitalised world of music copying

Philosophical musings: 1. The actual rules used by humans are so much more complex with a lot of ifs as OCTO puts it, than those that are programmed into even the most sophisticated software. For this reason, computer output tends to look cartoonish and over-simplified. For example: compare the look...

Re: Test topic.

Very strange. The previous test post went through on this thread, but when I tried pasting a longer post here it didn't go through again, and I get the error message: No route found for "GET /posting.php" (from "http://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=432&p=6149") Maybe its the act of pasting that is s...

Re: Test topic.

For two days I have been trying to post, so far without success. After writing a post in the full editor, I can't even get to the preview stage.
