MuseScore 3.0 alpha Release
We are pleased to announce the current state of MuseScore 3.0 via specially prepared builds with "alpha" label.
Packages are available here
The most significant improvement of 3.0 version is collision-detection engine which allows autoplacement for all elements in the score.
Starting from now, you don't need to adjust elements position manually, everything is done using smart algorithms.
MuseScore 3.0 alpha introduces a new concept of writing timeless sheet music.
TimeWise Insert/Delete allows note input not depending on the current time signature of the measure.
We are improving user experience of this feature. For now, you can use it by following next steps:
- Start Note Input ("N")
Hold "Ctrl" while input notes
Many additional improvements
3.0 alpha saves scores with the version which will be opened correctly in official MuseScore 3.0 Release.
