Foto-Mode

The following page documents features in an upcoming version of MuseScore. These features are only available for testing in the latest nightly builds. This page should not be translated yet.

The Foto-Mode allows to create image snippets out of MuseScore scores. It can be toggled on/off with the Foto-Mode button.

F-Button

In Foto-Mode, a selection rectangle can be spawned with Shift + mouse drag.

Lasso Selection

The selection rectangle can be moved with the mouse, or resized by moving on of the eight handles.

Once you specify the bounding box of the image snippet you want to create, right-click into the rectangle to popup the context menu:

Score Snippet

If you save your snippet in "print mode", it will appear as a cut out of the score as it would be printed. In "screenshot mode", the image will look like the score on your screen (including line break markers, etc), which are not printed (100dpi example):
