A Help to MuseScore Formatting
« on: July 14, 2018, 05:05:04 PM »

I converted NSM's template with a couple edits to MuseScore, and I made a program to fix some formatting things that are lost in the MusicXML conversion. I thought it could be useful, so I decided to share them here:

Template:

[1.0]

XML Editor:

[1.0][1.1][1.2]

How to use this:

1. Download the template
2. Copy/paste the music/composer/arranger/copyright (File > Score Properties...)/...
3. Export as MusicXml
4. Download the program
5. Drag-and-drop the .xml on the .exe
6. Drag-and-drop the xml in Finale Notepad.

What the program does:
- Remove the Pno. markings
- Add measure numbers

(N.B: This program only work for 1-piano sheets.)

Musescore -> finale, and it just adds measures numbers + removes pno. markings in an xml file. Source code is only 20 lines, so it's not that insane :)

If you're going to further update this program, I'd suggest immediately focusing on subtitles on each page, copyright information, and page numbers, because those (besides the measure numbers you already added in) are the only things a MuseScore user can't get in the MUS that's required for formatting.
The uh... "Pno." thing could already be removed without any need for a program, btw.

Those'd be hard though, because the way MuseScore sets up those bits of text is different from Finale. Impressive what you've done so far regardless.

Given that Tras's native language is French, I'm assuming the h in help is supposed to be silent

Yeah, that's one of the (too many) mistakes I usually make.

If you're going to further update this program, I'd suggest immediately focusing on subtitles on each page, copyright information, and page numbers, because those (besides the measure numbers you already added in) are the only things a MuseScore user can't get in the MUS that's required for formatting.

Yeah, that probably will be harder, but I'll try.

That's because you're supposed to drag-and-drop a .xml on the exe, not double-click it.

V 1.2 is here!

Changelog:
-This version adds page numbers. However, their positions are hardcoded in the script (I copy-pasted (with some minor edits) the page numbers thing from another xml exported by FInale), so they won't always be accurate. However, you can move them in Finale Notepad, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Whenever I convert my sheets from musescore to finale I save it as an xml document, open it in finale, get the file template for our sheets and select all the measures and copy and paste it over. I don’t know if this is easier or not but it works for me
