MuseScore Example Manager

3 2

Insert MuseScore examples into LibreOffice Writer Documents

Project Description


Create musical examples with MuseScore and insert them into your document using this extension.  MSCZ files are automatically converted to graphics with hyperlinks to the corresponding MSCZ files, so that if you Ctrl-click the graphic example within your document, MuseScore is invoked and you can edit the original example.  Changes to the example from within MuseScore can be propagated back to your document.


Put cursor where you want an example to appear.  Click the MuseScore button on the toolbar or go to Insert / MuseScore Example and select an MSCZ file.  A graphic representation of the example (with excess whitespace automatically trimmed) will be generated and inserted into your document with a link to the original MSCZ file.  Ctrl-click the example to edit it further in MuseScore.  After editing and saving the example in MuseScore, you can select the graphic in LibreOffice and press the MuseScore button again to update it.


You must first install MuseScore, version 2.0 or later.  This program is supported on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

The first time you run MuseScore Example Manager, you will be prompted to confirm the location of the MuseScore executable.  This location is saved in an INI file (msem2.ini) stored in ALLUSERSPROFILE\MuseScore Example Manager (Windows) or HOME/.MuseScore Example Manager (Mac OS, Linux) should you need to edit this setting later.
