Wyschnegradsky Accidentals in Key Signature

• Feb 17, 2020 - 19:56

I am trying to create a new, custom Key Signature, but I can't use Wyschnegradsky Accidentals, although I can find them under the Symbols in the Main Palet.
Any advice would be appreciated.

None of the Wyschnegradsky Accidentals are available for creating a Key Signature.
All the available accidentals in the dialog box concern half tone, quarter tone and commas.
From the available accidentals in the dialog box I can only use the normal flat and sharp.
The 1/12, 1/6 and 1/3 tone flats and sharps do not exist in the dialog box as Wyschnegradsky or other accidentals.

Thank you for your advice.
I didn't know I can create an issue, I will now write it.

Yes, some glyphs in the dialog box look just like the Wyschnegradsky Accidentals, but I need to use more glyphs than those as well.

Also, in case MuseScore will include non-semitone (microtonal) accidentals playback in the future (hopefully), it would be saving time to have the right Key Signature instead of having to change them later.

For the present time, it would be helpful having Wyschnegradsky Accidentals in the Accidentals Pallete, so the people that will read the score can understand which accidental it is, by clicking on the glyph in the score.

Some intrastructor for some microtonal accidentals is there, like the pitch difference (0, +/-100 +/-200 for semitones anything else for microtonal), see ibmscore/accidental.cpp, lines 36-131, 2nd column, but that isn't used anywhere yet.

But please submit an issue to get those Wyschnegradsky accidentals added.

Edit: thanks for #301387: Wyschnegradsky Accidentals missing in Accidentals Pallete
