Is there a newbie tutorial on finding and installing plugins and their fonts?

• Feb 20, 2022 - 02:08

I am trying to find a Native American Flute tablature plugin.

I have found a couple, but have not successfully been able to install them. I also just learned that a particular plugin only works with a specific version of MuseScore.

I am not interested in learning how to write plugins. I just want to find a turnkey plugin with installation instructions included. (I was not able to figure it out from the MuseScore or Doxygen documentation).

Any suggestions?

Thank you to all who helped me on this thread and related threads.
With your help, installing Clint Goss's plugin was easy.

Developing those fonts was a labor of love. Clint is one busy person.

I am still learning about using the plugin though. So far, it seems to be restricted to an F#minor NAF flute, no matter what the key signature is. Does anyone know if I can map the score to a flute of a different key?

I also wonder if there is a shortcut key to delete all tablature so that you can refresh the tablature. Otherwise, you get two rows of tabs -- the old version and the new version.

The plugin is great for learning the fingering for an existing flute solo score. Just click on the plugin, and voila!

I am still trying to find out if there are short-cut keys to add grace notes and trill fingerings (they are not automatically inserted). You can do it by wading through Clint's font chart to find the alt-keys. But they are scattered throughout the font. (The grace notes are displayed as smaller tab diagrams).

I am digging through Clint's extensive documentation to see what I have missed so far.
