The File menu
||Previous | Next|
The File Menu contains nine items:
To create a new file, select File->New from the File Menu or press Ctrl+N. This will clear the contents of the currently active safe. You will be prompted to save the current contents of the safe before creating a new file.
Navigate to the file you wish to open, select the file and click Open. Alternatively you may simply double-click on the desired file. You may also use the key combination Ctrl+O to open a file.
You can find out more about the Music Library in the Music Library section of this guide.
To save a file in Hyperscore, choose File->Save or press Ctrl+S. The first time you save a piece, this will open a similar Windows file browser. Navigate to the folder where you wish to save your file, type a name for the file and click Save. Every subsequent time you save this file, it will automatically overwrite previously saved versions.
Save As enables you to resave the currently open file with a new name. To do this, choose Save As from the File Menu or press Ctrl+Shift+S, navigate to the folder where you wish to save your file, type a name for the file and click Save. (Hyperscore will automatically append the file extension .hsc to saved hyperscore files).
Save to My Music enables you to save music to your own local music library. Select File Menu ->Save to My Music, and navigate to where you want to save the file. When you open the Music Library, you will see your music in a folder called 'My Music'.
Clear MIDI may be used to stop any 'stuck' MIDI notes. Occasionally when you stop playback, a note may continue to sound. Choosing Clear MIDI from the File Menu will send a MIDI 'All Notes Off' message, which will clear these 'stuck' notes.
You may also exit the software by simply pressing ‘Q’.
