Update V.188.8.131.52 released 9th March 2012.
Chages to ‘Saved Playlists’ tab:
New button on saved playlist toolbar to ‘preview’ a saved playlist without opening it. This opens a window with a list of the songs on the saved playlist. There is an option to add one of the songs to the current playlist, or to open this playlist.
Fixed issue where re-ordering songs on playlist did not register as a change so did not prompt to save when exiting or printing songsheet.
Lots of changes to the Sheet Music Editor:
In the list of pages, the display is Page 1, Page 2 etc instead of file names. The file name of a selected page is displayed at the bottom of the list for reference.
This change has also been applied to the Scanning screen.
Import from PDF - addition of a list of imported pages similar to the scanning screen.
This is to allow selection of different areas of a PDF page without having to return to the editor each time the selection is saved. This means you can select the top half of a page, click ‘Add selection’, then select the bottom half of the page and click 'Add selection again, and so on. This is a good way to split pages and magnify for the visually impaired. If the section does not display large enough then increase the DPI and use ‘Preview’ to check. This change also means you don’t have to reload the pdf file each time to import different sections. Once complete, press the top left button to return the saved page imports to the editor.
New Toolbar above the sheet music pages list. The buttons ‘Delete’, ‘Move up’ and ‘Move down’ have been moved here and 2 new buttons have been added:
‘Duplicate Page’ and ‘Modify Page’.
These options have also been added to a context menu for pages (right-click).
Duplicate creates an exact copy of the selected page and appends it to the list. This is really useful for repeats - for example Page 1, Page 2, Page 3 then Page 1 again (added as Page 4)
Modify opens a basic image editor with features similar to the scanner features:
Brightness, contrast, crop, rotate and the very useful ‘Auto-deskew’ feature which will attempt to straighten a page of music which has perhaps been scanned slightly off the horizontal.
These are major changes which give a huge improvement to the manipulation of sheet music.
