Here’s a quick note on some of the updates we’ve made recently. Most of these are not groundbreaking features, but some very useful additions to the product…
Filter Selection is a new command on the Edit menu that allows you to first select a range of music, and then filter that selection so that only objects of a certain kind remain selected. For example, say you wanted to shift all the chord symbols in your piece upwards. You could select the entire score, filter the selection so that only chord symbols remained selected, and then move all the chords up at once.
It’s now possible to import any number of MusicXML or MIDI files at once. Just select multiple files in the dialog box that comes up when you use the Import… command. If you import into a file that’s in a Folder, all the imported files will be in that same Folder.
Scores created by Crescendo users can now be viewed on mobile devices by anyone, even people without a Noteflight account! This makes it even easier for Crescendo users to share their scores with friends, bandmates, colleagues and others.
Musical excerpts can now be set up so that the first bar begins with any desired number.
Double accidentals are now supported in all chord symbols and figured bass.
