Title as Header
For brevity here I use MS1 for MuseScore 1.3 and MS2 for MuseScore 2.0 Beta 1.
There was no easy way in MS1 to print the title on every page of a score, other than by adding a text box to each page. MS2 adds a header that can be set to contain $:workTitle or $:movementTitle so as to include the title on each page. However, in playing with this I've found a problem:
Scores I've imported into MS1 from Finale through MusicXML, when opened in MS2, have the title value assigned to movementTitle, and nothing assigned to workTitle. Scores I've created directly in MS1, even though they contain a title, have no value assigned to either workTitle or movementTitle when opened in MS2. (Seeing as how MS1 doesn't have headers, footers, or metatags, this is understandable, but I would think that when MS2 opens the file it would find the title and assign the value to the proper metatag.) I tried deleting and recreating the title in such a score (one that had been created in MS1) in MS2 but both workTitle and movementTitle remained with no value assigned. (Perhaps I need to save and reopen the file after the edit; I didn't do that.) If I create a new score in MS2 using the wizard, only then does it assign a value to workTitle (but not to movementTitle). (If in MS2 I assign an empty metatag such as $:workTitle or $:movementTitle to the header it just displays the tag, not the actual title. Should it not rather display nothing?) Either I'm missing something I need to know or there's something wrong here. At least so it seems to me.
