Requesting Transparent PDF background
Transparent PDF background vs. Image Capture transparent PNG
MuseScore's Image Capture affords an easy and elegant way for selecting a rectangular section of a score.
Then pre-export (via right click) the Image Capture dialog allows me to:
• toggle background transparency
• Copy (for pasting elsewhere)
• or Save As (Print Mode)—as shown in the following image—to a high quality 300 DPI PNG
NICE! Someone in MuseScore development realized the need for transparent backgrounds in a pixelized format.
I'd like to see a similar option with PDF/vector export.
Since MuseScore has its own PDF Export, can we have a dialog or setting that provides the choice of a transparent background? Then we'd have the feature currently available in PNG transparency ... but with the advantage of unpixelized lossless vector rendering at any scale.
I can toggle transparency via Adobe Acrobat but that's just an additional step needed outside of MuseScore. And I'm done with Adobe (read "subscription model") and I doubt that my version of Acrobat will survive another system update. So I'd like an in-house solution. And my understanding is that PDFs are transparent by default unless the exporting app imposes a background.
