I have written a number of songs that I would like to export into a Word or PDF document (ultimately, pdf, I think). There will also be words/drama between the songs.
I wonder what is the best way to export these songs to effectively create a musical. Is there a straightforward way of doing this? I would need to merge songs, but also add a page of drama between the songs, as well as page numberings, etc. I'd appreciate some advice about margins, adding text, etc.
Exporting from MuseScore is easy, lots of different ways to go about it. You can export the whole score as a PDF or as PNG or SVG using File / Export. You can also use the image capture tool (camera icon at right of toolbar) to capture just a region of the score. Or you can use the MuseScore Example Manager extension for LibreOffice to automatically convert scores to graphics and insert them into text documents with links back to the original MSCZ file for easy editing. Or you can develop your text in a word processor then simply copy and paste it into frames in MuseScore so the entire musical would be a single score.
Which of these methods is best depends on many details, like the relative ratio of text to music you are dealing with, etc.
