copying measures from score into documents (Word, Apple Pages)

• Jun 14, 2020 - 18:39

As best I can discover the only way to put an extract of a score into a text doc is to do a screen shot and crop the picture. This seems very inefficient. It would be very useful to be able to highlight a range of measures in a score, and copy as a pdf or png and then be able to paste directly into Word from the clip board. Is this now possible in Musescore 3? or will it appear in Musescore 4?


That's the only way indeed and this will remain so. Word is not a music editor, so there's no way for MuseScore's notes and lines and all that to make any sense to it

Are you aware of this workflow?

  1. Click the Toggle 'Image Capture' toolbar button (the icon looks like a camera).
  2. Use the mouse to adjust the capture rectangle to your desired capture area.
  3. Press Ctrl+C.
  4. Switch to a document-editing app (such as Microsoft Word) and press Press Ctrl+V.
