Hello,

I'd like to request a very simple little feature to save the zoom level with scores.

Also, it'd be extremely useful to be able to set a default zoom level in the preferences.

Finally, I'd love to be able to set a keyboard shortcut for zoom to page width.

All of these little details would make for many less clicks. Many thanks!

Kind regards,

Albert

Hi Zack,

Preferences --> Score has no ability to set the default zoom to page width. This is the important feature because it scales when the window is resized, whereas other zoom levels don't.

Also, feature #68041 only zooms to 100%, not page width.

I'd therefore like to resubmit these little ideas to the development team. Thanks!

Kind regards,

Albert

Indeed, the default zoom cannot be set to page width—my mistake. That is very much a valid request.

I brought up "zoom to 100%" not to say that a command to zoom to page width is unnecessary, but rather that it should be easy to implement, since we already have a template for it.

Feel free to resubmit these as separate issues if you want to—it may make it easier for the developers to keep track of the individual features requested. (I've changed the title of this issue again to represent the topic as clearly as possible, and as you can see it's kind of a cluttered title.)

Do you have a specific shortcut in mind that you'd like to use for "Zoom to Page Width"?

Many thanks, Zack. I don't really have a specific shortcut in mind for zoom to page width. (In Word I set it to ctrl-Z on the Mac since it's quite handy, but this might not be available or suitable on other platforms.) I'm sure whatever the devs find most logical amongst the available shortcuts would be fine.

FWIW, it is not necessary to settle on a default shortcut in order to implement a command. There are a number of commands that don't have shortcuts, but they can be assigned in Edit / Preferences / Shortcuts.

I sync file "MuseScore2.ini" between computers, the only trouble is the "mag=0._ _" in the contents, if there was a "zoom to page width" option, it would be good.

Which works for you on that particular screen and windows size.
But as you see it scores a factor/percentage there, but any of the other options don't have a fixed percentage.
Maybe we could 'special case' them to use zero (to mean Page Width) and negative values (like -1.0 to mean Whole Page and -2.0 to mean Two Pages)?
