Solfege in Minor Key
S5 - Suggestion
I would like to be able to change Solfege to minor key if needed please as part of a feature in Moveable solfege. Please?
This should be able to use the inspector option that allows the user to tell the program which mode the key signature is in.

Could you email the steps on how to do this ? or was this meant for the coders?
It was meant for the programmers. I'm trying to help you.

Thank you Mike! I appreciate your help!
Yes, in principle keying (sorry) off the "Key signature mode" would be a good way to do, but then, we'd also someone need to provide both do-based minor and la-based minor as options. Currently the results are correct for minor keys already according to la-based minor. FWIW, labased minor is how the school where I teach does things, and from what I understand it's considerable more common than do-based minor in the US. But I personally prefer do-based minor, just as I prefer to call the tonic scale degree 1, not 3.

Hi everyone. +1 to this suggestion.
There is an additional issue which is, that the names inside the noteheads don't change with altered notes. For example, assuming C major/minor, E is "mi", but E-flat would be "me"; B is "ti" but B-flat would be "te". Currently MuseScore does not show these alterations, and for do-based minor this would be essential.
E-flat doesn't change from "mi" to "me", but gets the additional flat sign.
SMuFL just doesn't have a "me" or "te" notehead, so that much is by design and won't change, unless SMuFL provides those noteheads
FWIW, "me" is the usual solfege term in the US for a flatted "mi". But indeed without the noteheads in SMuFL, there isn't much we can do.

Is SMuFL a closed specification? In other words, is it not possible to propose additions to it?
It's quite possible, although I don't know the process. I'd start by doing a web search to find their current official site, etc.
If you place the key signature after the first measure, THEN you can set it.
Wait, hold on... the last key signature does not wanna budge. So... you gotta add a key signature at the end.

Trying to play catch here. The github issue states that "This has already been implemented in SMuFL 1.4. Please see #82."
I'm running 3.6.2. What version of SMuFL does it use? Starting to look at the code now.
MuseScore 3.x (!) got updated for SMuFL 1.4 in https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/commit/e121bd284a55f4f609167c86f…, on 5 Apr 2021, so post 3.6.2, which is on SMuFL 1.3
