Better user experience for large scores (too large for standard paper)
We can see that a lot of users have difficulties with the interaction between paper size, number of instruments and spatium. The forum is full of questions like "Why is my score cut at the bottom?", "Is there a limit in the number of instruments" etc... Some users don't ask any question but they just switch to continuous view and forget the issue in page mode. How can we solve this in elegant way?
I believe the problem can arise in 3 different places:
- New score wizard
- Instrument dialog
- Page settings (if the user chooses a paper too small or a spatium too big)
So we could add a dialog after these 3 dialogs. Or maybe only the 2 first ones?
"There are too many instruments for this paper size. Please go to Layout > Page settings and choose a larger paper size or a smaller scale" (Any better wording idea?)
We could even propose to change the spatium or the page size automatically. Is there a minimum spatium we should consider?
