QuickScore Elite How To

How to export a score

Getting Started   Tutorials  Manual  MIDI and Audio

You can save your scores as TIFF, BMP, Windows Enhanced Metafile or EPS files. These files can be imported into popular graphics and word processing programs like Microsoft Word and Corel Draw and any of the hundreds of other programs that support these formats.

You can export either a line of music or a page of music. To export a line, make sure you are not in Print Preview or Page Edit mode. In this mode, only the system of music that you see in the Score Editor window will be exported. Titles and page numbers will not appear. To export a page, make sure you are in Print Preview or Page Edit mode. In this mode, the full page of music appearing in the Score Editor, including page numbering and titles, will be exported.

Select Export Picture from the File menu and then select either Enhanced Metafile, 300 dpi, 150 dpi or 75 dpi from the submenu that appears. Choose Enhanced Metafile to create a vector-based Microsoft Enhanced Metafile. Choose 300 dpi, 150 dpi or 75 dpi to create either a .BMP or a .TIF file.

A file selection dialog box appears. If you have selected 300 dpi, 150 dpi or 75 dpi, choose your file type by selecting either BMP or TIFF in the Save File as Type list box.

Enter the name of the file to which you wish to save your line or page and click on OK or press Enter.

You can now import your saved score into another application. To do this, follow the directions specified in the documentation for this application.

If you want to create an EPS file using QuickScore Elite, you must print using a Windows PostScript printer driver. When you print, make sure Print to File is checked. After you click on OK, you will be prompted for the name of the Encapsulated Postscript File you wish to create.
Make sure that you include the fonts you use with your EPS files. This is important, because otherwise music will appear as text if the viewing computer does not have the Mozart font installed. To make sure your fonts are being downloaded, click on Preferences, then the Advanced button, exand the Postcript Options and make sure that the TrueType Font Download Option is set to Automatic.

The EPS file you create can be imported into any program that imports EPS files. Microsoft Word for Windows is an example of such a program. To print these files you need a PostScript printer. If you have not included your fonts with your EPS file, you will also need the Mozart TrueType font installed in Windows. (If you have installed QuickScore Elite on your system, this will be the case.)
