StaffPad maintenance update improves MusicXML export


PrintStaffPad Ltd. has released a minor update to its flagship StaffPad music handwriting app. Made available over the past weekend, v. includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Improved MusicXML export for improved support in Dorico
  • Improved MusicXML support for correctly exporting other dynamics text
  • Portamento line no longer has “port.” text by default; this can be switched on a case-by-case by doing a long-touch on the line itself and choosing Switch Port Style
  • Added sleigh bells (a month too late!)
  • New instruments in the store: Hammond B3 and Accordion
  • A few instrument fixes for gong, cymbals, etc.

The update is free for all existing users. The latest significant update in November added support for the Surface Dial and a number of other feature enhancements in the areas of beamed groups, tuplets, copying and pasting, symbols, bar number changes, and several other miscellaneous areas.
