MusicJOT / Changelog / What's New in v1.3.8

  1. Bugs Fixed
  2. Fixed an issue where the top of some scores might get cut off in the transformation editor’s preview area.
  3. Fixed an issue where short left to right strokes failed to recognize.
  4. Fixed an issue where grace notes following a 16th note or quicker were not behaving properly.
  5. Fixed an issue where you couldn’t change an interior note in a tuplet to a grace note.
  6. Fixed an issue where rests in a beam group were sometimes drawing with a half beam. This issue was inadvertently introduced in v1.3.7.
  7. Improved spacing of dotted notes.
  8. Whole measure rests are now centered in the measure.
  9. Certain expressions such as dynamics and tremolos can now only appear on a note once. Adding a different different dynamic (for example) simply changes the existing one.
  10. Improved vertical centering of grace notes on line or space.
  11. Features Added
  12. Dragging on a bar line in the measure number bar will expand that measure stack by adding space in between every note. This is very useful when trying to insert new notes in between notes that are very close together.
  13. Now restoring last zoom and staff positions when opening saved documents.
  14. Transposing notes from the Action menu now also transposes chord symbols and fretboards.
  15. New “Live Change” button in Static Palette allows direct duration change of tapped note(s) to current palette duration and note/rest.
  16. Added a user option to designate an Auto Save interval.
  17. Added tremolos (in expressions) with playback.
  18. Revamped the expressions/dynamics/shapes palette into a single palette. Now always in “Live Mode” so palette can stay open while inserting new expressions.
  19. Added ability to place a tuplet number without a bracket beam side (in addition to number bracket note side). Added context sensitive “Flip Tuplet” toggle.
  20. Tuplet panel now defaults to most common triplet based on selected note’s duration.
  21. Known Issues
  22. Undo after a multi-staff copy/paste is still problematic. Best is to save your score before attempting any large undos.
  23. Collisions between voices may occur and will be addressed in an upcoming release.
