What's New in version 2.605
  • A new document setup panel was added to NoteAbilityPro and connected to the File / New menu item. The previous document panel is still available through the File / New Custom Score menu item. The new document panel allows you to create a score by indicating the instruments you want in the ensemble. Staff labels, playback sounds and transpositions are automatically created for the chosen instruments. Alterations to the score layout can still be made after the score has been created.
  • A Chinese Cypher panel was added to the Tools menu. This menu causes a panel designed for chances Jianpu music notation to be shown. You can use this panel to create Jianpu notation or to convert selected passages of music between Jianpu and Western notation. Details on the operation of this panel can be found in the Help files.
