Add letters to piano keyboard

• Aug 17, 2020 - 13:08

On the piano, it displays C1, C2, C3, etc. How do I add C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, etc.?

I think, as a minimum, one octave. Two are probably better- see attachment Keyboard.jpg . I start with "A" as the letters are from "A" to "G".

The intent is to help students understand that the key names repeat. While hovering would work, the attached image provides an instant understanding.

Later, the plan is to match notes on a treble clef image with keys simultaneously, as MuseScore plays the sequence of notes.

That's 2 octaves ;-)
Not (easily) possible with the current code, which calls the black keys A# C#, D#, F# and G# and doesn't know a thing about their enharmonic equivalents.

But there's a) the notenames plugin and b) the notehead scheme, and with those no need for the piano keyboard at all?

The letter "P" displays the keyboard instantly (toggles). If there were a check box - display letters - it could toggle the letters on the keyboard.

Everything else in MuseScore would ignore those letters on the keyboard.
