Jagged slurs, dynamic lines, and beams

• Jul 7, 2014 - 06:34

I'm using Mscore 1.3 in Linux (Ubuntu 12.04), though this issue was a problem in Mscore 1.2 also.

Attached is part of an orchestral page in which the slurs, dynamic lines and diagonal beams have a serious case of the jaggies. It looks very bad, and is nothing I want to show anyone.

For jagged beams, notice the piccolo staff. Jagged dynamics and beams pretty much ruin the French horn staves.

Has anyone else had this problem? Were you able to solve it?

Thanks for any help.

Looks like a screen resolution issue to me.

It could also be associated with zoom level - pixels don't always properly relate to the vectors MuseScore draws.

Does this behaviour occur in a PDF export of the file?

If so there is a problem.
