Hi all,

Peter Bjuhr and I have been working on a new tool for Frescobaldi that I
have wanted to have for quite some time now. It's only the first step of
what it may become, but Peter was perfectly right by triggering actual
work with saying "something is better than nothing". I think the
"something" we have now is already a very useful enhancement in itself.

It is a new "manuscript viewer" panel that can be used to have a
manuscript open within Frescobaldi. So if you are copying music from an
existing score you don't have to switch applications but can see the
"engraver's copy, the LilyPond input and the engraved output in the same

Before merging it we would like to have a few people test it. If you are
running Frescobaldi from its Git repository we'd like to ask you to pull
the latest commits and checkout the 'manuscript-viewer' branch.
You can then open 'Tools->Display manuscript', click on the help button
and start your review from there.
Please test the tool, try to crash it and find any inconsistencies in
behaviour or interface.
Please also see our list of open discussion items at

Thanks and have fun
