Option to view only the notation workspace

• Aug 8, 2020 - 19:04

I would like an option that would allow me to see a larger notation workspace during playback. In essence I would like to temporarily hide the Notation palette and also hide the main top palette (File Edit ... ) so that I can use see more of the score. Most the Celtic music I play fits on the screen. In other words I would like to have the option to use Musescore just to see the score without any other panels


Thanks Shoichi, That kind of works but there is a lot of un-clicking and re-clicking to do: Palettes, File operations, play back, image capture, Note Input, Workspace. I would like one-key operation like F-10 or Ctrl - something

I would like to be able to use Musescore as full screen viewer for my music, instead of having to print it out and use my music stand.

Create a custom workspace using the "+" button next to the workspace control at the far right of the main toolbar. Select toolbars & gui components as options in the dialog. Now, you can customize this as you see fit, and change back and forth between that and a standard workspace in a single click. I have this set up as "Presentation" and it's really nice to be able to switch easily.

It's possible, no doubt, if enough people request it. But what went wrong when you tried it? I've been using this for months now with no problems except a couple of my own doing because I'm constantly reinstalling different versions and trying different customizations in order to reproduce problems reported here.

Thanks Marc for that suggestion. The first time I tried it ... I added new workspace (name: Full Screen) with none of the extra components ticked and then unchecked all the extra view panels I got my full screen view but the advanced and basic workspace also were changed to full screen view. Next try was: I added new workspace (name: Score) with all of the extra components ticked and then unchecked all the extra view panels and it worked. I now have a workspace that shows the notation in full screen mode with just the top menu showing File Edit View .... etc The only thing missing is I want my Basic workspace with 70% view and my my full screen "Score" view at 80%
