Default Hello Notation Composer and Mu

Hello Notation Composer and Musician Users,

Please Note: Starting with this announcement, only the Development (that's me) will be able to add posts in this section of the forum. The reason for this is to minimize the amount of email notifications that forum subscribers get from this Developer's Announcements section of the forum, which is the only section that some forum participants subscribe to. If you find a problem with a release, please report the problem in another section and topic of the forum that most closely matches the subject of the problem.

Maintenance Release Version 2.0.4 of Notation Composer and Notation Musician has been released. If you are using any version 2.0 through 2.0.3, I recommend that you update to version 2.0.4 using a patch. For instructions, please visit or

The 2.0.3 release was short-lived because it had a crashing bug at the start of playback and recording for some users.

The fixes and improvements in version 2.0.4, including those in version 2.0.3 are:

File saving and reopening. Fix bug: In some special circumstances, a file could not be reopened after it was saved. Those files can now be reopened without any problem. The special circumstances involved a combination of using layout commands and deleting parts.

Parts. Fix bug: The Notation program might hang when you delete a part, if some circumstances in which you used page layout commands on a measure for that part and the same measure in another part.

Playback. Fix bug: No sound was heard in Notation Composer if Windows Multimedia Player (WMP) version 11 previously played a MIDI file, because WMP changes the Control Panel / Sound / MIDI volume level to zero by surprise.

Text. Fix bug (problem only in Musician, not Composer): The Free Text option to add a mixture of music symbols and normal text failed with an error message.

MusicXML Export (feature in Composer only). Improvements:

* Include default-x and default-y attributes for credit/credit-words.
* Instead of note/pitch/alter values 11 and 10, use -1 and -2.
* Do not include key, clef, and time for measures in which these do not change.
* Add notations/tied element, in additiona to note/tie element.
* Do not include an accidental-mark element for trill, if the accidental is none.
* Include the orientation attribute (over/underP for note/notations/tied.
* Remove unnecessary backup element at the end of measures.
* Do not export stems for whole notes.
* More accurate page margins.
* Automatically export brace or bracket if it has not yet been added by the user to the score.
