Use forScore’s styles panel to create, edit, and use an unlimited
number of different presets perfectly tailored to your needs. Edit any
preset by tapping the gray arrow button on the right-hand side of
each entry, or create a new preset by tapping the + button.
In the preset creator, you can adjust hue, saturation, transparency,
brightness, and size. When you’re done, give your preset a name and
tap the “Save” button to finish.
Some musical symbols cannot be typed into a text box, but with the
“Stamps” preset you can place these kinds of annotations directly on
the page. Tap the arrow next to the stamps preset in the drawing
panel to see all of the available stamps, and select one to use it. At
the bottom of the panel, you’ll see a preview of the stamp, and you
can drag the size slider back and forth to adjust it accordingly.
Once you’ve selected a stamp, tap and hold the screen for a
moment, and you’ll see a magnifying glass appear showing you
exactly how your stamp is going to look. Drag your finger around to
reposition it as needed, and then lift your finger to place the stamp.
Rearranging and deleting stamps:
If you use particular stamps more often than others, you can
rearrange them as needed. Tap the “Edit” button, and all of the
stamps in the panel will begin to wobble. Drag any stamp around on
the screen, and the others will move out of the way. Drag a stamp to
the edge of the panel to move between pages, and let go when the
stamp is in the desired spot.
While in edit mode, you can also delete stamps by selecting them
and then tapping the trash can button at the bottom of the panel.
You can also add stamps by pressing the + button or edit any
existing stamps by first selecting them, and then tapping the action
button. Either action will launch the stamp editor, where you can use
your finger to draw or edit your design.
You can even create stamps by importing your own images. First,
create an image on your computer (it must be a PNG image, and for
best results should be 48x48 or 96x96 pixels), and add it to forScore
via iTunes File Sharing. Then, create a new stamp and press the
“Import” button to see any PNG files currently on your iPad. Tap any
one of them to add it to the canvas, and you can either save it or
continue to edit the image as needed.
Tip: The import panel also allows you to manage your files; swipe your
finger across any entry to see the “delete” button appear, then tap it to
remove an image once you no longer need it.
