Multipage PDF(&TIFF)


Does Music-to-XML support multipage PDF or Tiff or do you have to treat every page separately.

How are partial systems treated (e.g. first system piano only, second line SATB & Piano)

Re: Multipage PDF(&TIFF)


Music-to-XML supports multi-page PDF and TIFF files.
Optimized systems are handled exactly as they are in SmartScore X2... from the bottom up. That is to say, parts that appear in System #1 / Page #1 will be assigned to the lowest stack in the list. As additional parts appear in subsequent systems, they are assigned to higher levels in the stack. Example: A piano-vocal arrangement with a piano introduction in the first 2 systems: The vocal part will be assigned to Part 1 while the piano parts will be assigned to Parts 2 and 3.

I don't have SSX2, but in my older SSX the "Add New Parts" option (in the Recognition Options tab) lets you choose to add them to the top or bottom. Is that still available and it just defaults to add them to the top, or is that now the only option?

M2XML has absolutely no editing capacity at all. What is written is what is output. Adding or extracting parts is done within the importing program. As with SmartScore X2, M2XML reads and assigns parts (staff lines within systems) from bottom up, numbering them starting with the highest number (the largest system recognized) and moving up to Part #1. It sounds crazy, but it allows for proper numbering of parts when systems are optimized... e.g. Vocal part joins the piano accompaniment on the 3rd system. Bottom up counting allows for the vocal part to be assigned "Part 1". Make sense?

Re: Multipage PDF(&TIFF)


Previously, I was able to select multiple pages (in other words, an entire song,) and recognize the entire song to open in Finale. It was great.. The accuracy is amazing.
BUT...
Now, for some reason, (maybe because installing another programs changed something,) I am only able to recognize one page at a time. I can't use Ctl-A or the usual ways to select multiple files in Windows Explorer.
I first thought I could reinstall the gadget, but that does not seem to be possible.
Any thoughts?

Fist thought: have you restarted the computer?

Have there been any updates applied to the computer? Can you roll back to a time when the program worked?

Have you tried uninstalling first, and then reinstalling the program?

Re: Multipage PDF(&TIFF)


yep, restarted several times

The computer my have been updated, but I'm hoping there is another way, because updates are important.
I did install one other program which I have removed, to no avail

I don't think there is a way to reinstall Music to XML because I didn't download an install package,and there is no executable of which I am aware. I'd be glad to be wrong about that.

I have found a workaround of creating a PDF of all the pages in a song and recognizing that pdf file. I did several songs just today using that method.

Re: Multipage PDF(&TIFF)


Now, I'm confused. Do you mean that previously, you were recognizing multiple individual pages? When I have a song, I scan it into one combined PDF, and recognize that.
