hi all.

Does Musescore allow PDF import?

I have a lot of vocal arrangements created in [ahem] other software that I have printed out to PDF. I would like to continue working on these. Sticking with Musescore is my preferred option, however I am unable to import them.This feature seems to be on other [paid for] notation software.

Is it possible to add this to the plug-in framework.

Many thanks

It impossible to import PDF to the MuseScore.
PDF is a graphical format and it does not contain any information about notes,durations, etc.

So you can import it to Adobe Illustrator, but no to music software.

So you can continue work on you projects with MuseScore if you have sources files - midi or any other which contain musical information.

Thank you both for coming back..

I did not know about Audiveris, I will try it. Thank you for the suggestion.

Kind regards

See above and good luck with it
But that score is most probably better to transcribe manually (i.e. directly entered into MuseScore), shouldn't take much more than 30 minutes

Here the notes, lyrics left as an excercise to the reader ;-)
