How do you save an instrument template?
I designed rough templates of Bandora and Opharion, instruments not seen today which were very popular in Elizabethan times. They took up 2/3 of Barley's 1597 "New Booke of Tablature." I did both standard and tab versions, then I just saved them each as .mscz files. Then I wanted to use them both in one score, and was stuck. How to load the presets I spent so much time on, both together? Obviously there must be some method for putting instruments into the Edit>Instruments dialog, which would seem to be the fix I'm looking for, but I don't see any obvious way to do that.
The short term fix I came up with was to save all my non-standard instruments in one big score, then start with that score and just delete what I wasn't going to use. This seems inelegant, though.
Also, is there some way to submit instrument solutions for other users to save them from re-inventing the wheel? Or, is there some page I haven't found that does this already?
Thanks for your kind efforts on my behalf,
both in the past and now.
