Display music as koto/shamisen notation

This plugin opens the current score using the KotoViewer Java program, which displays it as koto/shamisen notation. More information about KotoViewer is available here: //sites.google.com/site/razvanswebsite/software/kotoviewer .

Assuming that KotoViewer is already installed on your system, you will need to download the attached plugin file called OpenInKotoViewer.qml, then install it in MuseScore. For plugin installation instructions see: //musescore.org/en/handbook-advanced-topics/plugins#installation .

NOTE: After installing the plugin in the appropriate MuseScore directory, you need to change the variable KV_PATH in the plugin file to point to the actual location where KotoViewer is installed on your computer.

The plugin will appear as a menu entry in the Plugins menu called Open in KotoViewer. When you select it, the currently opened score will be converted to MusicXML format, and saved in the directory where KotoViewer is installed as a file named plugin_score.xml. This file will then be automatically opened in KotoViewer.

In case you encounter any errors (KotoViewer doesn't start, no score is displayed, etc.), note that plugin output is not yet saved to a file, as the procedure to do this is not clear, so you will need to run the standalone KotoViewer from the command line and check the output directly.
