Snippet creator

While answering on the forum, writing short lessons or creating howto for, I find myself doing screenshot of scores of 2 or 3 measures or saving as PNG and crop the result in image processing software. This plugin aims to make this easier.


  1. Create a new score and enter a couple of measures of music
  2. Go to Plugins -> Snippet creator, enter a file name, press save and wait.
  3. You have a nice and small picture without white border to be embedded on a website or in a document

Note : The plugin works only on single page score. There is no option to change transparency, size of the resulting PNG etc... The processing is quite long on my computer, if the plugin is used I might add a progress bar.


Compatible with MuseScore 1.0 and later only.

Installation instructions : See [[Plugins]] in the handbook
