"Count note beats" Plugin

• Mar 26, 2021 - 16:44

MuseScore version: 3.6.2

Platform: Windows.

The "Count note beats" plugin doesn't work for me. It does not appear in Plugin Manager.
I was able to load and run other plugins so that doesn't seem to be the problem.
I tried the folder way (/Plugins and /Plugins/Notes); I renamed the qml file to "Count note beats"; and I created a new plugin with the same code inside (just changing the path and name) to prevent possible buffer queue errors.

No way. I don't know if anyone has experienced something similar and it can be solved.
Thanks a lot.

Hello. I'm using MuseScore3 v 6.2.54xxx on Windows 7 Ultimate 64. The Qt version is 5.9.9.
I would like to try this plugin, but I too can't get it to work. I've downloaded it and placed it in the default Plugins folder (C:\Users\User1\Documents\MuseScore3\Plugins), but it doesn't show up in the Plugins Manager.
I notice that the path to all the pre-installed plugins as shown in the Plugins Manager is "C:/Program Files/MuseScore 3/plugins" and not the default path as shown in Edit>Preferences>General>Folders. So I copied the plugin file (count-note-beats.qml) to C:\Program Files\MuseScore 3\plugins folder (the path shown in the Plugins Manager has forward slashes, but I am in Windows, which uses backslashes), but still the plugin count-note-beats does not show up. I have restarted MuseScore several times and also reloaded the plugins, but still it does not show up. I have even reinstalled MuseScore to make sure that the default path(s) is/are correct and repeated all of the above.

Can you suggest what might be wrong? Have other Windows users of MuseScore3 v 6.2.54xxx managed to get this plugin to work?

Thanks in advance.

Okay, I uninstalled MuseScore and am running it directly from the .exe file (v 7, rev 366113d). I'm having two problems:
- The Plugins Manager dialog is empty, and reloading the plugins doesn't change that (I've copied the plugin file to the default Plugins folder created by MuseScore;
- Every time I close the program, it crashes:

That's the file I had downloaded from GitHub after clicking on "Go to file"...
Okay, I copied the code into a new plugin, and it seems to be recognized. I can see it and check it in the Plugins Manager. It added numbers to the first few measures of my file at some point, but I don't know what I did to get it to work. Now when I add new notes it no longer adds numbers.

Sorry about all this. But at least I'm getting somewhere thanks to you two.

Okay I managed to get it to run by copying the code into a new plugin and running it. Then I saved it and now it works on selected passages when I hit the shortcut I set from the Plugins Manager.
Thanks to both of you for your help and patience!
