Known issues

  • Due to limitations in the MuseScore API, the plugin is not able to add the key signature. The user must add it manually. However the plugin will use it in order to choose correctly among flats and sharps when building the patterns.
  • Due to limitations in the MuseScore API, the plugin is not able to add the F-clef. The user must add it manually. However, the patterns are transposed accordingly to a F-clef.
  • Not working under MuseScore 4.0 for now (not even appearing in MuseScore 4 plugins panel).
