Finishing up the engraved score: House styles part 1

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:

Filter Text

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. 

Split score into Movements

This plugin splits the current score into a number of separate movements scores, based on the location of bars marked as Section Ends.

Disguise Score

This plugin Makes a copy of a score, or of the music contained within a passage selection, deleting previous versions. It then optionally randomises 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:

In the next post we will have a look at templates. 

Have a great day!


Helpful to the max

Andre, you went the extra mile by including links to the plug-ins plus a link to an in-depth tutorial page. Gratitude!
