Can I specify in a score where to stop playback?
Is there a way to specify in a score to stop playback at a specific point?
Here are two applications for which I have wanted to do this:
(1) I have a color version of a score for those who have color printers, and a B&W version of the identical score for those who only have a B&W printer. The colored and B&W versions are on separate pages, and I do not want both of them to play on playback. I want the Play button to play the first version and then stop.
I am a strong believer in the value of color, but I have had people tell me that things that I show in color do not print out on their B&W printer (or barely show up).
(2) I have the same, identical piece scored for alternate instruments. I want the viewer to be able to start playback at the top of the page for his or her instrument, and have the playback stop at the end of that one arrangement.
It is silly to upload six variations of the same exact score for people to have to wade through.
BTW, Although this question applies mainly to the playback on MuseScore web pages of uploaded scores, it is good for both environments (local and web-based) to have the same behavior.
