    Project mention: When Musescore 4 becomes operational software, release it again, and let me know | reddit.com/r/Musescore | 2023-05-22

    Is this what also led to https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/issues/17663? If so I definitely urge you to spend the couple of minutes to test with a nightly build so we can known it is truly fixed for your case and not illustrate the other case that had been reported. As mentioned, testing nightlies is simple; they don’t interfere with normal installations at all.

    Project mention: Introducing a new sheet music renderer with staff v0.6.0 | reddit.com/r/rust | 2022-12-11

    Nice ambitious project. I love GUIDOlib (which can target in browser app !) and I hope one day a port or an alternative will be available. I love the fact that you're mixing music theory tools with rendering, especially when it comes to build interactive music score based app, and I don't like music21.
