Improvement history for Mozart 9

 

 

 

Mozart Service Pack Infelicities addressed

Mozart 9 Version 9.3.4

February 2010

  • Thanks to Jack Higham for pointing out a problem with play-back when multiple whole bar repeats in a percussion part go through a key change. This holds the record for the hardest bug ever to locate, but it is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.3.3

August 2009

  • A tie ending at the first note of the Coda is now only drawn as far back as the start of the coda. Thanks to Zay Sevier for pointing out that this was not being done correctly.
  • Entering notes in a section between "extra" bar lines is now less likely to generate a spurious error message and stop you. Thanks to Nigel Parsons for finding this one.
  • Thanks to John McGlaughlin for pointing out that MOZART shows hidden rehearsal marks when reading in a file. This no longer happens.
  • Thanks to Bengt Johnsson for pointing out that when an instrument change, a key change, and a start of repeat coincide, the net key change is drawn twice in slightly different places. This is now fixed.
  • Sometimes the version checking for networked version of Mozart was failing when it shouldn't. Thanks to Arnold Hill School for pointing this out. It is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.3.2

June 2009

  • The universal fix-up command Ctrl+F5 now detects and corrects storage inconsistencies in the string-cache, correcting occasional strange behaviour reported with duplicate strings.
  • Copying a section of music starting or ending within a set of 1st/2nd/etc time bars is now much safer. (This appears to have been an infelicity which has never been reported in the 14 years it has been there, which it must have been, from MOZART 1 onwards!)
  • Some small improvements have been made towards co-existence with later versions of MOZART (when there are some).
  • The number on an n-bars-rest symbol is no drawn over the centre of the bar even when the justification implies a large stretch.
  • Thanks to Marie Kross for reporting problems using piano keyboards to enter notes for guitar (with an octave transposition). Using a keyboard (or the little piano tool) to enter notes for transposing instruments is now much more consistent.

Mozart 9 Version 9.3.1

April 2009

  • Thanks to Doug Cox for spotting the long-standing misprint in the name of the Surdo, and that its mute and open voices were interchanged. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for discovering that deleting an extra bar line which was the start of a first time bar, can lead to unpleasant problems. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to John Mowad for pointing out that Mozart's attempts to draw music without mozart9.ttf being installed, whilst necessarily being approximate, were less than optimal. This emergency drawing has now been improved.
  • Thanks to Bob Leech for showing that installer 9.3.0 failed to install modules mzwfi.dll and FreeImage.dll, with the result that one could not export bitmap images. This is now fixed. (Service pack 9.3.0 was unaffected by this installer problem.)

Mozart 9 Version 9.3.0

March 2009

  • Thanks to Lawrence Toal for demonstrating that ties started before the 1st time bar, and not completed in the 2nd time bar, can lead to MOZART holding the note indefinitely. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to John Mowad for reporting that playback of a selected block can terminate early if the block ends just before a bar line. This is now fixed.
  • Mozart's instrument data base now contains baritone (DGBE tuning) and tenor (GCEA tuning) ukuleles. Thanks to Don Whitener for pointing out their absence.
  • This version has been designed to be downloadable when people buy the program, as increasingly it seems people do not wish to wait for the CD to arrive by snail-mail. It therefore has somewhat enhanced security with a user-name and serial-number being demanded by the installer. (Though people installing service packs over versions before 9.3.0 will be spared this inquisition.)

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.11

February 2009

  • Mozart is now more robust against attempts to ctreate nested multiplets.
  • The font button on the text dialogue now responds to Alt+F. Thanks to John McLaughlin for pointing out the lack of a keyboard interface up till now.
  • Some dialogue boxes have been enlarged slighly to accommodate Italian text. "Pentagramma" is a lovely word for "stave" but it does require a respectful amount of space!
  • Mozart is less prone to erasing courtesy accidentals when performing operations like replacing an instrument. Thanks to Barry Brooks for drawing attention to this.
  • Pricing information and order forms are no longer included in the program itself; rather there are links to the information on the web site. This is to facilitate maintenance of competitive pricing in different currencies in the face of volatile exchange rates.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.10

December 2008

  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding out that the caret can behave inconsistently sometimes after editing the first line indent with the page layout editor. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Cindy Pedder for introducing MOZART to a friend who plays the koto. This instrument (the national instrument of Japan) is now included in Mozart's instrument data base.
  • Thanks to Clyde McMorrow for finding a bug whereby MOZART can sometimes get confused between the G Banjo and the Tenor Banjo. This is now fixed. (If you have any pieces including a Tenor Banjo then go to Score/ScoreLayout and replace the Tenor Banjo line with the Tenor Banjo (yes I mean that). This will update the details of the instrument and avoid future confusion.
  • Thanks to Chris Barlow for coming along for a chat at the Early Music Festival in Greenwich in November, and pointing out that "autodot" doesn't work if you're entering notes with the piano keyboard tool. It does now!
  • MOZART has been a bit fussy abot allowing entry of grace notes: it has only been possible before a note and not before a rest. Thanks to Cindy Pedder, who has quite rightly pointed out that often you may need a grace note *after* a note and before a rest. You no longer have to jump through quite so many hoops to achieve this.
  • If, on importing MIDI file, MOZART encounters a key change in the middle of a bar, it puts it on the preceding bar line. Thanks to Gordon Bower for noticing that the notes between where it was found and where it is put are inadvertently transposed. This is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.9

August 2008

  • Fixes a minor quality control problem in MOZART 9.2.8. Thanks to Gunnar Nordstr�m and others for pointing it out.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.8

August 2008

  • Following a request from Mitch Park, the Northumbrian small pipes have been added to the instrument data base.
  • A obscure bug in the beaming algorithm has been fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding some obscure circumstances where accidentals do not align correctly on a stack of notes. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for finding even more obscure circumstances where the repeated-accidental-in-a-bar rule was not being correctly interpreted. This too is fixed.
  • Thank to Nigel Parsons for providing a score in which too much extra spacing was added when transposing from D-major to Db-major. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Simmons for pointing out theat when an extended 8vb goes across a line break, the end is drawn incorrectly - this is now fixed.
  • Thanks to J S Pooh for finding a sequence of title entry operations which did not set the chosen fonts. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Cindy Pedder and MItch Park for noticing that 4/4 and 2/2 time signatures at the start of a piece were not always drawn with Cs when they were supposed to be. This too is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.7

April 2008

  • Thanks to Mitch Park and J S Pooh for finding a bug when copying from a piece containing a very long text string.  This is now fixed.
  • Mitch has also requested "Open D" "Open G" and "Dad Gad" (or "DSus4") tunings for guitar tablature.   These are now available.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out that there are some (albeit) rather obscure circumstances in which Mozart's global preferences can revert unwantedly to the default settings.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for pointing out that the "Do you really want to do this" question when creating an anacrusis can sometimes be asked twice.   Mozart now listens better the first time it asks.
  • Thanks again to Jeroen for pointing out that exporting a template can leave spurious hidden stave markers in the template.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks yet again to Jeroen for noticing that context-sensitive help didn't work on the bold button on the toolbar.  It does now.
  • Thanks once more even to jeroen for showing that hiding items can occasionally force the caret out of synch.  this is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Dave Sublette for pointing out that it ought to be possible to replace a dotted minim in 6/4 time by a multiplet, and that one doesn't have to look at anything more obscure than Holst's Planets in order to see it done.    This service pack makes it possible in Mozart.
  • Thanks to John McLaughlin for pointing out that the ^ accent no longer toggles around 3 states.   I had come to the conclusion that a ^ accent below a note was not needed, but have been reconvinced!  It is restored to 3 states.
  • Thanks to John Mowad for pointing ut that the ability to save GIF images had disappeared.   This was due to an older version of the 3rd party library freeimage.dll being inadvertently included with recent service packs.  The newer version is restored by this one, and with it the ability to save GIF images.
  • The default play-in metronome setting has been changed to 100bpm instead of 120.
  • Thanks to Nigel Sharpe for finding a copy/paste bug when the bar copied begins with a clef change.  This is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.5

February 2008

  • A first line indent in a template is now correctly respected when a file is opened.  Thanks to Bill Patterson for reporting this one.
  • Thanks also to BIll for pointing out that those enamoured of long template names (and why not?) cannot see the whole name in the template list box horizontally.  It now has a horizontal scroll bar when necessary.
  • Bug pre-emption: provision has been made for Mozart 9 to open double clicked files correctly in all circumstances after the release of Mozart 10, and to handle Mozart 10 files correctly when the time comes.
  • Thanks to Bill Simmons for finding a beamed group of quavers where the beam was horizontal but looked as if it should have been allowed to slope with the notes.  The beaming algorithm has been adjusted by half a scintilla, and this beam now slopes.
  • Thanks to Mitch Park for pointing out that the [??] tool-bar button had no tool-tip or status bar message.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Richard Goodman and Nigel Parsons for sending in crucial files which illustrated problems with inserting clef changes in the middle of bars.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Nigel for an analysis of where Mozart goes wrong in pasting passages containing relative tempi - this is now fixed too.
  • Thanks to Yannick Lecorvaisier for finding a MIDI file which didn't import correctly; a small improvement in the import algorithm means that it does now.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding another; another small improvement in the import algorithm means that it imports correctly now.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.4

December 2007

  • Three obscure warning messages have been found outside the translation system, and brought into it, enabling translation modules to include them.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding an obscure situation in which a jazz gliss did not copy and paste correctly.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Patterson for pointing out that muliple-bars-rests are created irrespective of pauses (fermate) on rests.  this should not happen.  It doesn't any longer.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding a really obscure situation in which the initial time signature was not always being drawn after entering an instrument change.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Mich Park for finding a few oddities manipulating chord shapes.   Copying a chord shape onto a tab stave was changing inversions sometimes.  Mozart now checks, and if the string tuning of the tab and chord symbol parts are the same makes a very direct copy preserving the inversion.
  • Mitch's comments also highlighted the fact that transposing with the "preserve pitch" option might change the inversion of a chord shape.  This has now been prevented.
  • Sometimes chord shapes were being drawn with too many blank frets at the bottom.  This is now fixed.
  • It was sometimes very difficult to get the highlight on text associated with an instrument change.  This is now improved, but it still requires care with the up/down arrow keys on the barline associated with an instrument change.
  • Thanks to Fred Bridges for noticing that clefs on changing instrument were not showing a little 8 where that was requested and appropriate.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to John Dablin for finding a broken link in the help system.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Simmons for finding apparently same-sized text in "Footer p1" and "Footer other pages" which were rather different sizes when drawn.  The difference arises from a confusion of conventions: whether it is the text height or the (slightly larger) "cell height" of the text which is being described.   Mozart uses one convention, but I suspect the other may be implicit in some templates (as a hang over form earlier versions of Mozart).   This is therefore a difficult one to cure with certainty, but the solution is to edit both fonts, forcing Mozart to adopt the same convention.   This is now scheduled for review in Mozart 10.
  • Thanks also to Bill for sending in a file with a form of corruption we hadn't seen before (in the string cache).  The cause is yet to be identified, but in the mean time the Ctrl+F5 decorruption command has been enhanced so that it fixes this.
  • Thanks to Bengt Johnsson for finding a bug in the chord selector dialogue when the "Apply" button caused the caret to pass a key change.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Alan Bannister for discovering that the File/Duplicate command does not always respect the structure of lyric lines, and that this can cause problems editing the duplicated parts.  This is now fixed.
  • New feature: bar-lines which form the start of a 1st/2nd/... time-bar may now be numbered if they are also at the start of a new line.  thanks to J S Pooh for suggesting this.

Mozart 9  Version 9.2.3

August 2007

  • The multilingual installer has been improved so that if you install a language for Mozart which is the language in use for Windows, then Mozart should automatically come up in that language the first time it is used.
  • Thanks to Cindy Pedder for pointing out that the stave spacing is not being correctly taken from the template when separating parts with File/Duplicate.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Cindy for noticing that if the caret is after a rest and before a note, then the grace note entry command fails.   This is now fixed too.
  • Thanks to Gordon Bower for pointing out that a block whose selection starts before a note can, when deleted, also remove a phrase mark which ends on a note immediately before the selection.  A very precise report of the problem made this an easy one to fix.
  • Thanks to Miriam B for reporting problems separating parts from a portrait format score to a lanscape format part.  This was a subtle one but should now be fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Patterson for pointing out that if you separate a vocal part from the score using no template, then the lyric font defaults to Times new Roman instead of being taken from the score.  It looks like the same thing was probably happening to the rehearsal mark font.  Buth bugs are now fixed.
  • Thanks to Gunnar Nordstr�m for noticing that jazz glissando ornaments between beamed notes were not being drawn correctly.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for managing to insert extra bar lines where it should not have been possible.  It is now impossible to do it those places (or at least significantly harder).  This may have resolved the problem for which Ctrl F5 was extended in v9.2.2.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for finding that Mozart does not enter a soft line break on an "extra" bar line unless there are also some countable bar lines on the system.  This is now fixed too.
  • Thanks to Mitch Park for noticing that the transposition dialogues did not default to "nearest transposition".  They should have.  They do now.
  • Thanks also to Mitch for pointing out that playing a selected block ending in DC or DS was not stopping at the end of the block!   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Simmons for pointing out that the Help/Index command, used when a music window is open, was opening the contents rather than the index.  This is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.2

June 2007

  • One or two small changes have been introduced to allow improved integration of the various language modules.
  • Thanks to Michael Bednarek for pointing out that Shift+F10 ought to bring up a context menu - this is a standard Windows interface.  Investigation has found that Mozart was not looking for this key press, but nevertheless seemed to be receiving it from some mysterious low-level mechanism, but that the context menu was coming up in random places - possibly sometimes off the screen!  The message has now been directed to the correct window and Shift+F10 duplicates the Windows menu key (which is not always present on all keyboards).
  • Thanks also to Michael for pointing out (again!) that an extended 8va symbol could not be hidden if its bracket extended past a line change.  This is now fixed. 
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for reporting a time signature confusion when backspacing from the end of the piece through a coda symbol with an implicit time change.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for pointing out that the Windows Menu key did not always bring up the right menu in the right place.  It turns out that ist was ok with justification turned off, but that it didn't correctly get the caret position allowing for justification.  It is now fixed.
  • Thanks yet again to Jeroen for noticing strange play-back behaviour when pppp and ffff dynamics are present.  This is now fixed too.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for noticing that padding a bar with rests was introducing courtesy accidentals, and to  Tony Caphorn  and Jason Riggs who discovered the same thing happening when converting notes to rests, This too is fixed.
  • Thanks to Colin Fine for sending a slightly corrupt file which Ctrl+F5 could not fix up.  The decorruption procedure has been adjusted to allow for this and Ctrl+F5 now works on this file.   It also works on corrupt files sent by Cindy Pedder and John McLaughlin.   The source of the problem is still under investigation.
  • We have found and fixed an obscure problem with grace note enty when the caret is on the final note of the piece.
  • Thanks to Mitch Park for suggesting that sharpening or flattening a note should make it sound in the same way as if it is physically moved up or down.   Rather than waiting for Mozart 10 it has proved straightforward to implement this here, with the proviso that a whole chord sounds if you change one of its accidentals.  [Doing it differently would have involved larger structural changes with a potential for more to go wrong.]
  • Thanks to Richard Kirkwood for exposing an infelicity in choosing the optimum default octave when showing a piece at concert pitch.   This is now improved.
  • Thanks to J S Pooh for pointing out a further shortcoming when drawing mandolin chords which involve a large finger stretch.  These have now been improved.
     

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.1

May 2007

  • Thanks to Mitch Park for finding an unpleasant bug (failure of some tabbed dialogue pages) which appears only under Windows 98.  This crept in in the last couple of service updates and we're spitting feathers about it.  [It took a while to track down, but having done that, it is now clear that it occurred because of a failure of Microsoft documentation to note that a certain function (a CPen constructor) fails under Windows 98 with a certain combination of arguments.]  It is fixed now.
  • Thanks to J S Pooh for pointing out that one can stretch the fingers on some string instruments to form chords over more frets the Mozart shows in the chord editor.  For smaller instrument (mandolin, ukelele,...) Mozart now shows more frets in the chord shape editor.
  • Thanks to Raymond Robijns for pointing out that the "convert to rest" command removes courtesy accidentals in the relevant bar.  It does so no longer.

Mozart 9 Version 9.2.0

April 2007

  • The Mozart font used by this version is Mozart 9.ttf.  The installation procedure has been updated in an attempt to avoid occasional problems if the font is already installed.
  • Entering extra bars and tempo changes between notes was failing.  This was an imperfection in a bug fix in 9.1.1 (tempo changes in multiplets).  Thanks to everyone who reported this and to Matti Raukko who found a different manifestation of it when changing a bar of 4/4 to two bars of 2/4.
  • The descriptions listed in the colour scheme dialogue, were not translating until a reboot after a language was selected.  Thanks to Jeroen Neve for finding this one; it is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for pointing out that a pause (fermata) was not being drawn correctly on a bar at the end of a line.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for finding an instance where showing a courtesy accidental did not automaticaly introduce enough space.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Raymond Robijns for pointing out undesirable behaviour when deleting bars next to an instrument or voicing change.  This is now fixed.
  • A problem occurred when clicking near to, but not quite on the multicolour button in the colours dialogue.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Lucas Gonzalez for finding a combination of swing rhythm and trurn ornaments which threw Mozart 's playback completely out of rhythm.  Mozart now does much better.
  • Thanks to J S Pooh for pointing out that the repeat-a-bar symbol repeated the previous bar at the previous tempo, irrespective of an intervening tempo change.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Hugh Daukes for finding a combination of symbols which caused Mozart 9 severe problems - a dynamic (or other item) at zero spacing after a clef change.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Wayne Jahnke for finding an old Mozart file which failed to open with Mozart 9.  the bug which prevented it is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Greg Dunn for pointing out that chords do not print correctly if they are shown on the screen with the non-scalable font.  This is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.1.1

March 2007

  • Thanks to "Engelnwald" for finding a MIDI file which tries to import to more than 64 strands, and reporting it on the Mozart chat group. The unpleasantness this caused is now fixed.
  • Explanatory text on the Undo menu was note being picked up from language modules. this is now fixed.
  • Attempting to change a stave type immediately after importing from MIDI was causing a crash. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Raymond Robijns for exposing a problem inserting tempo changes nest to multiplets. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Michael Bednarek for noticing that an 8va symbol cannot be hidden when the caret is on the start of its span. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Michael for pointing out that one should be able to turn dotted minim in 3/4 into a doublet crotchet. Doublets are now possible on dotted notes (a) which are the unit of a compound time (eg dotted crotchet in 6/8) or (b) occupy a whole bar (eg dotted minim in 3/4).
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out that replacing one keyboard instrument by another added a strand to the bass stave. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Marie Kross for pointing out a problem with loading Mozart files from old formats. Some text fonts were appearing a little bit odd. After being unable to find the cause, and having almost given up, another small problem arose, the cause of which (in retrospect) was almost certainly also the cause of the bug Marie found. If so, it is now fixed.
  • Three people have reported problems with a non-functional file menu. I have been completely unable to reproduce this problem, but suspect that in some cases the wrong version of Microsoft libraries has been picked up. This update stops that happening and provides a "diagnosis" window available from "About Mozart " to show exactly which modules are in use. Tests indicate that the problem is now cured.
  • Changing instrument and voicing were very poorly indexed in the help system. This is now rectified.
      Language Module problems solved:
  • Selecting "no template" when duplicating parts sometimes generated a spurious "file not found" message. Thanks to Jeroen Neve for picking this one up; it is now fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.1.0

February 2007

  • Thanks to Antonia Barker for reporting inadvertent clef changes when staves are added with Score/ScoreLayout.  I haven't been able to duplicate it but i did find that the caret was not always returning to its original strand.  That, at least, is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Bill Simmons for pointing out that 8va's on a grand staff do not always appear at the vertical location expected when you enter them.  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for noticing that clef changes may sometimes be too close to the notes before them.  This is now corrected.
  • Thanks to Tony Caporn for highlighting an undesirable persistence of the "current accidental" when you click on a new stave.  This is now improved.
  • Thanks to Michael Bednarek for reporting that a pause (fermata) on the lower substaff of a Grand Staff was being drawn above the upper substaff.  This is now corrected.
  • By popular request the harmonium is added to the available instruments.
  • If inserting a beat or changing the top digit of a time signature would result in a bar line going through where  the last note of a multiplet had been previously, Mozart was experiencing alignment and beat problems.   Thanks to Jeroen Neve for discovering this.  It is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out that some nearby courtesy accidentals are lost when you merge notes.  This is now corrected.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for pointing out some undesired caret movement when you click in the title area (and other non-music areas).  This is now fixed.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for pointing out that selecting a block sometimes selects an unexpected set of parts.   This is now fixed too.
  • Thanks yet again to Jeroen for complaining about the lack of an explanatory message sometimes when a key change cannot be introduced.  This too is fixed.
  • Thanks to J S Pooh for finding that Mozart was getting confused sometimes when entering percussion sets.  this is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Barry Brooks for pointing out that Mozart woule be improved if it did not remove courtesy accidentals when changing a passage's pitch by an octave.   In this version courtesy accidentals are retained on all pitch change operations unless you remove them explicitly.
  • Thanks to Iv�n Mendieta in Panam� for providing a Spanish version of the instrument database, which is included in this release.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve, for finding a problem combining two normal staves into a grand staff.  This is now also fixed.

Mozart 9 Version 9.0.3

December 2006

  • Thanks to Roy Best for noticing very quickly that Mozart 9.0.2 had lost Segno (and a couple of other styles) from the list offered in the Barline Styles dialogue.   This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out the that the clever new service pack download method, does not close all instances of Mozart if more than one is open.   This Service Pack should fix that (for next time).    Next time the download operation should indicate the total number of bytes to be downloaded while it shows progress.

Mozart Version 9.0.2

December 2006

  • Thanks to Scott West for noticing that copying from a Grand Staff and pasting to a radically different stave type was not working. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Gordon Bower for pointing out that an indented system which contains an end-of-tune marker before the end of the stave does not print correctly. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out that tying on the fly was not mentioned in the tutorial. It is now. [Service Packs will not install the updated tutorial but you can download it separately from www.mozart.co.uk]
  • Information about new dynamics ffff pppp fp ffp sf sfz sffz was missing from the help system. It is now there.
  • Information about new text substitutions &d &D &h &H was missing from the help system. It is now there.
  • NoteTripleDot now features more prominently in the help system.
  • Text fonts can now be edited while the caret is on a lyric line.
  • The background colour no longer reverts to the default when you switch off context colouring. Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out this one.
  • A bug in the colouring of the grid text in the voicing change dialogeu has been fixed.
  • The drop-down list in the MIDI-channel column of the score-layout (voice) and voicing-change dialogues has been made clearer and more powerful following a shortcoming identified by Jeroen Neve.
  • Thanks to Gunnar Nordstr�m for identifying a case where Mozart was not drawing a simultaneous change of key and instrument correctly. This is now fixed. If you have an example of this, then it won't appear correctly automatically but using Ctrl+F5 will now rectify it, and it shouldn't happen again.
  • Thanks to Matti Raukko for finding a bug with multiple voice changes in a part. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing out that copying in "all parts on one stave" mode and pasting to another stave didn't work properly. It does now.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for exposing some problems when Mozart tries to tidy up hanging bars full of nothing at the end of a piece. This is now much improved.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for noticing an imperfection in the autodot algorithm. You can now use it for dotted minims in 6/8 and 6/4 and longer dotted notes, even including dotted breves in 12/4!
  • Thanks to J.S.P. for pointing out that the up/down arrows were not responding in a text-edit box. This is now fixed.
  • It was impossible to put reiteration marks directly on tab notes. This is now possible.
  • Reiteration marks on tab notes (when created by pasting from a normal staff0 were not being drawn correctly. This is now fixed. Thanks to Zlatoje Pajcic for sending an example illustrating it.
  • There was some uncertainty about the behaviour after Mozart stopped playing back a piece. Thanks to Jeroen Neve for pointing this out. This has now been corrected and the designed behaviour is that it should scroll to show the caret if playback runs to the end of the piece, but leave the termination point showing if you terminate it manually.
  • Thanks also to Jeroen for exposing a bug in the "autodot" procedure when used on chord symbol staves. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to Michael Bednarek for reporting a problem with the F9 command. I have fixed *something* but I'm not yet sure if it is what he reported!
  • Thanks to Cedric Brown for sharing his difficulties in deleting the last strand from a stave. The help system failed to point out that this requires removal of the stave, and it is now updated with a cross-reference.
  • Chord shapes shown at Bb-pitch were posing some problems. These are now resolved.
  • In the instrument & stave dialogue the "show rhythm" box was not always being initialised correctly for tab staves. This is now fixed.
  • Thanks to "Richard the Tuba" for noticing that pasting notes onto tab staves sometimes puts them below a capo. This is now corrected.
