Re: Change inserts of ♩

I wold like to use GNU FreeSerif for that purpose. A wonderful font. I am afraid I do not know the font GNU FreeSerif. What happens if you choose GNU FreeSerif as the category’s Music Font? Does that give you the desired note inserts? It might be a matter of the font having the note symbols located...

Re: Change inserts of ♩

Uncheck "Use Tempo Marks Category Fonts", select the note in the text sequence and use the font popup menu to redefine its font and its size. Thank you. That is known to me, but I would like to edit the dropdown menu. Accidentals can be changed globally, but I don't see how it can be done with note...

x instead of dot

In some scores of Rautavaara I have seen that he uses a small x symbol instead of dot to notate the full measure of 5/4.
Is there any way to change the dot to another symbol, only for one note?

EDIT (just example):

Re: TS 4.5/4

Or (2+2+2+3)/8 (like Dave Brubeck's "Blue Rondo a la Turk). That are 3 + 1 beats, I would need 4 + 1. Also, thinking about having to many "+" affects music spacing to much. Than I would need to do TS another way. But good I discovered you just type 4.5 and it works. Even it works like 4.2 or 4.4. I...

Because there are 4 beats, and one half (conducted quickly; not 3 compound, and not 3 + one compound)

It is interesting with 6/7 - a bit more complex, I will read it throughout carefully.

Re: Slu issue

There are different thoughts about this last practice. I've always slurred to the last tied note as well, but sometimes, especially with a long series of tied notes, this leads to a lot of clutter. In such cases, it would be better to slur to the first of the tied notes. Yes, that is exception of t...

Re: Slur to invisible

If you double click, the slur won't appear. However, if you double click and hold, then drag, it will appear. I have never heard about it but it works. However it doesn't snap. Maybe it is possible to use like that. The measure attached slur is known to me; I wanted just to have more "stable" slur ...

Undo JW Change

Friends,
Is there any way to undo changes that I have applied with JW Change?
There are a lot of sequences (resize noteheads, hide accidentals, and so on) so I need to do all manually.
Possible?

Re: solo cadenza in orchestra parts question

If it is cadenza, I don't believe anyone is concerning counting the measures.
Write just "tacet" or "cadenza" and that's it (as proposed by Motet above).

Re: solo cadenza in orchestra parts question

I think what I would do would be to apply a staff style to the parts that hides most everything (see below for something similar I do with tacet movements) and then cram all those measures together into a small space. You will end up with a blank "measure" which you could label cadenza. You'll also...
