Version 2.4.2 of the musical score editor NoteEdit is available:
- Problems with Flex-2.5.x fixed.
The new Flex begins to behave according to
its documentation. This causes problems during
file reading: All dotted notes are wrong.
This in turn leads to totally idiotic and unaligned scores.
- MusiXTeX export with choices for character coding:
1. selection the module fonts TeX (T2A, OT2, OT1...)
2. selection the locale file (latin1, cp1251, koi8-u, koi8-r...)
3. additional selection of package ucs for UTF-8
This sould make it possible to work with international
character sets. Don't ask me too much about this topic!
All I know is:
T2A + cp1251 + UTF-8 produces Russian (Cyrillic) texts.
T2A + ucs + UTF-8 produces Urkrainian texts.
If you have problems with your character set and you know
what to do: Let me know!
- In similar manner the LilyPond export dialog now
shows a choice between ASCII, latin1, utf8
and unicode text coding. Perhaps this can contribute
- a terrible slur bug which prevented saved .not
files from being loaded is fixed
- Restoring slurs in graces should work. This can lead to
problems for MUP users. The reason is: I want to keep
the NoteEdit storage format as MUP-able as possible.
Actually slurs over more than one note are made
by so-called "phrases" by giving the start and stop time
in terms of the current denominator
of the time signature.
For instance slur from 1st to 4th quarter in 4/4 measure:
1: 4c; 4d; 4e; 4f;
phrase 1: 1 til 3;
Unfortunatly, graces have all the same start time and
the main note has also the same start time:
1: [grace] 8c; [grace] 8d; [grace] 8e; 4f;
phrase 1 til 1
This gives nonsense. So, I "extended" the MUP syntax.
Of course, the result is not MUP-able.
- MusicXML in-/ouput further improved (Thanks to Leon Vinken):
+ is now more interchangeable with other systems (especially on
+ better handling of trills
+ better handling of dynamics (hairpins)
- Bugs fixed:
Among them - wrong LilyPond stem statements in
"no keep stems" case
- paste inserts a lot of nonsense rests
in multiple voices per staff case
