Support of MS4.0

Therefore, this plugin does not work under MuseScore 4.0.


  • This plugin relies on Fiati font being installed, which can be downloaded here: For windows 10 users: Make sure to install the font for "All Users" or MuseScore (and thus this plugin) won't have access to it.

  • The "Retune note from accidental" feature relies on the Accidental Tuner plugin. If installed and configured, then Alternate Fingerings will use its settings to tune the note correclty.


  • If using MuseScore version 3 then download the plugin and unzip it.
