Ah, I forgot to update the version number on the Windows side, I've now replaced the binary on the site. A redownload should correct it.

Jari,

Is it possible to add a filter for size altered notes to the Note Entry container? This would be to change note sizes from one custom setting to another and would be helpful for the editing of cues and editorial notes (other users can probably come up with other uses).

So if I get a score that already has cues throughout it reduced to 75% size but I need to reduce them to 70% I would be able to select the entire score and set the filter to only work on 70% reduced notes (or all reduce notes or all size altered notes). This would, of course, have to ignore grace notes.

And another crash, with lost work, this time applied to the score.

Jari,

I've been using this after the Cue Notes plug-in to move whole rests in layer 1 below the staff when they collide with notes above. Very nice--I used to use the Move Rests plug-in and like this better. Normally I do this while editing the score, but last night I applied it to a part instead and the program crashed with an unhandled exception. I know it's not much to go on, but I thought I'd report that.

It would be nice to keep the window open since I apply it repeatedly; I assume a "roll-up" is in the works. It's nice that settings stick between incarnations. How about having them stick between invocations of Finale?

I don't know if there's an attribute that triggers the spacing of accidentals when another layer is present but could you consider adding a quick way to deal with Finale's incorrect spacing of unison accidental-ed notes in two layers (i.e., the accidental shows twice). I know we can hide one of them - and risk forgetting that the accidental is hidden when we extract/pring the individual parts (Maybe JW validate could look through a part for hidden accidentals and warn us). I was thinking that a safer way would be to superimpose the accidentals so that it only looks like only one accidental is there (i.e., space them as if the other layer wasn't present). This way if we forget to undo the spacing in the part at least the accidental is still there - slightly supperimposed on the note - but at least it's there. and much easier to spot in proof reading than a missing accidental.


Yes, accidental cases like this is planned to be handled by JW Validate.

I've added the other JW Change requests you've made to the todo list.

Hi Jari,

Please consider adding to the Notehead/Shape feature an option to change to one of the many "Let Ring" noteheads, especially the "X Let Ring" noteheads in EngraverFontExtra. This would greatly speed the creation of percussion parts. If the plugin could automatically select the correct notehead based on the notes staff position and whether it has an augmentation dot or not that would be even better.

Jari,

Wopuld you consider adding the option to move dynamic expressions when doing a change to the vertical placement of hairpins? I'm having to move a bunch of hairpins from below the staff to above it and need the dynamic expression to move with them. TGTools align/move plugin (lite and full version) does not seem to want to move the dynamics above the staff.

FYI - I believe the dynamics part of the JW Validate plugin can help a user identify when hairpins extend a little bit into a preceding or subsequent measure. Can this "check" be added to the appropriate part of the change plugin to save the user a "Why isn't this working?" moment?

Hello Jari, another problem in JW Change with Hairpins: Right Position only works in Relative mode, not in Absolute


I can't reproduce a faulty behaviour with the absolute mode.

For example: a hairpin should extend to 3rd beat of a 4/4, and I enter 3072 and uncheck "Relative". However, please note:
1. The plug-in will do nothing if the right-side point is set at a position to the left of the left side
2. The full hairpin range must be selected

If this info doesn't solve it for you, could you please provide a short example that doesn't work? Thanks!

It's only working when the articulations have font Maestro or Petrucci, not with EngraverFontSet.

The Change articulations [Swap] function seems to do nothing at all...?


It should work. What are you trying to achieve?

For example, if you have a passage with some staccato dots and you want to add accents to the dots, do like this:
1. Mark the region where the dots to be replaced are
2. Select "With Accent" as the "Swap Mode"
3. Hit Apply. Answer "Yes" on the question that appears.
4. The staccato dots articulations should now be changed to staccato+accent articulations.

I'll see what I can do. If added, I would like to keep the filter logic for the stem container without any inconsistencies.
I assume you mean offering the "Upbeam and Stem Up" Stem Type options.
 
Is there a  reason you don't include "Downbeam and Stem down"? I know one could just check the opposite box but it's like the Layers filter. Offering all the options in the dropdown not only gives an alternate way of doing something (which may be important for some marco programs) but also means the user doesn't have to think as much which is always a good thing.  Intuition/intuitiveness over intellect/deduction.

Could there be a filter option for upstem vs downstem notes? Specifically, I would be looking for a way to move the trill symbol (and perhaps other specific articulations) horizontally based on the stem direction of the note they're attached to. The problem is discussed at http://forum.makemusic.com/default.aspx?f=5&m=374678&p=1 . Othere's may want to use it with the marcato accents (or even tuplets).

Thanks! I added chromatic transposition for chords to the todo list as well. (Chromatic transposition for noteheads already is on the list.)

The wrong words in the help text will be corrected in the next beta.

Great work, thank you, Jari !

A "cleanup" suggestion :
Chord Symbols -> Transpose (upwards and downwards), says "transpose the note..." instead of "transpose the chord..."

And a suggestion : chromatic transposition of chord symbols would be a welcome addition.

Thank you.
