You can view and edit score metadata several ways:
• by tapping the title of the score in the main view control bar
by tapping the round arrow button next to a score in the menu
by selecting one or more scores and choosing “edit”
The first two options allow you to edit the current score’s metadata,
while the menus allow you to edit any score’s information without
having to open it first, and also include the ability to batch edit files.
Each score and bookmark in your library can be tagged with a title,
rating, difficulty, and multiple composers, genres, and keywords.
While typing in a value for composer, genre, or keyword, you’ll
notice a small bubble icon above the keyboard that toggles a list of
any values currently used in your library. Start typing, and the list
filters down automatically, showing you only items that contain the
text you’ve typed. If you see the value you want, simply tap on it to
use it for the current file.
A box on the left-hand side of each text field controls whether or not
any changes will be saved when you close the metadata panel. A
check mark indicates that the changes will be saved, while an empty
box indicates that any changes will be discarded.
You can use multiple composers, keywords or genres by separating
them by commas, and the score will show up in the menu under
each of those categories. If you’re batch editing, use the box to the
left of each field to replace existing values or append the field’s text.
PDF Info Fetching
PDF files sometimes contain their own information for title, author,
subject, and keywords, which can be used by forScore as values for
title, composer, genre, and keywords respectively. Press the “fetch”
button above the keyboard to see if this information exists, and then
decide if you’d like to use it with forScore or not.
If you have an audio track of a particular piece in your iPad’s music
library (the songs that you can see through the system’s Music app),
you can bind that track to the corresponding sheet music in forScore
and control playback directly from within the app.
Below the rating entry, you’ll see an area with the words “no song
assigned” and a button off to the right-hand side—tap on that
button to view a list of tracks in your Music library, and select one to
bind it. Once you do, you’ll see the media box hover above your
score (it appears and disappears just like the control bar).
Tap the auto-suggest button above
the keyboard to see values you’ve
used before, and it’ll narrow down
the list as you type

of metadata, and the menu listings
will be generated automatically
