Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

One new feature is the automatic violin clef change that allows more condensation on empty staves: Haydn font instead of Maestro (see example score 2 bottom staves). The dynamic expressions now don't use rectangular boundary boxes anymore, but cut-out boundary boxes as in SMuFL. This allows for a be...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

Here is another test video demonstrating two automatic system/staff spacing algorithms of the Perfect Layout plugin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V0Xy4E_xYQ The plugin takes a score with many collisions between staves and respaces the staves within the system. 1.) Minimized: similar to the Don J...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

>BTW, two additional aspects which it would be nice if this plug-in could address in condensed situations are hairpin opening width
You mean: slightly reduce opening width in this case?

>and stem length.
And slightly reduce stem length
Two good ideas!

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

It's indeed a bug, that it was shifted in the second staff, because in the second staff it is not relevant to staff spacing. What is more difficult and might result in other collisions is to shift it in all staves no matter if there are collisions, i.e. also in the third staff. Consistency between t...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

Here is the first result of automatic spacing for condensed scores as described above. Thanks again, OCTO, for the input. The parts are processed as usual, but the score gets a condensed look as in the screenshot above. (Note: tuplet number collisions with slurs and hairpins are not yet supported by...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

Thanks, OCTO for your input! Yes, making a condensed score and spacing a part are two different things. Although at first sight there are only few rather simple rules to be implemented for your Don Juan example that are different from the spacing used in my video above: - the minimum distance betwee...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

>>take into account the overall size of the surface area covered above/below staff >Awesome! How would you do that, btw? You mean how I would calculate the overall size of the surface area above (below) the staff? Currently I have the coordinates of the "skyline", i.e. the vertices of the boundary b...

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

>Systems 3 and 4 look too close together Yes, because the plugin currently only looks at the vertical distance between two elements. If if it had taken the vertical distance as radius, it would have detected a closer collision (between p and the top left corner of the G box instead of between the sl...
