Layout template

From MusiCAD

Using a layout template you can adjust a whole series of settings at the same time. This allows you to use, among other things, a standard layout for a booklet, record 4-part parts on two bars, sound preference settings. etc. accompaniment arrangements are also saved as a layout template. A large number of layout templates are already included and are divided into a number of groups.

You can also assign layout templates to shortcuts (and therefore also to user buttons), use them in a toolbox and even apply them in playlists, just what you find useful.

With the shortcut <F2> or the templates button you get an overview of available templates.

Dialog Layout Template

For the function of the buttons above the list, see the list below:

new Create a new template based on the current melody layout.
copy Create a new template as a copy of the selected template.
delete Delete the selected template.
edit Edit template in text form.
choosetype choose between score templates and layout templates

A layout template is something like a melody file without notes, with the possibility of additional template functions.

The template list shown represents the templates as found in the folder specified in [Options|Preferences|Locations|Template Folder] supplemented with templates contained in the MusiCAD installation folder.

To make it easy to use layout templates, many key combinations in the main screen can be linked to layout templates.

When opening a music file, a formatting template is usually applied. At [Options|Preferences|Files] you can set which one this should be.
