"New Score" dialog in 1.3 and 2.0

• Feb 16, 2014 - 12:06

I am currently trying out different layouts for a welcome screen in 2.0. See

It appeared to me that there is a difference between the 1.3 and 2.0 "New Score" dialog:




Since I would like to have a similar layout to the 1.3 version with the sheetmusic image on the left, I would like to know:

Is it planned to add an image to the 2.0 dialog?

I think I'm the one who removed the (ugly) image from this dialog. I have no plan to add it back. The image was taking too much room in the dialog. Moreover the image was not displayed on some OS (like Windows 8)

My Humble Opinion:
What is space needed for in that window? I don't think space is that restrained in musescores current scorewizard. The Image gives a nice guidance for the eye because it distinguishes itself from the background; the current grey window doesn't.
It is pretty much a standard to have a layout with an application logo in the top right(check), a content area in the middle(check), and an image on the left.

Do you think this particular image is bad? There are many others. On windows 8 it seems like a solvable issue, not for 1.3 but certainly for 2.0.

We don't have enough room in the next screen


It could be solvable on Windows 8 but it should also work on Windows XP and up and on Mac OSX too. Not just on Ubuntu. It was a lot easier to just remove the image and make it work everywhere. That's being said, if you can make a good image and make the new score wizard work on all platforms, I will hapilly merge the pull request !
