Muscial Notes
« on: July 04, 2019, 10:11:09 am »
I am wanting to typeset some musical notes. On googling I worked out that this is done using a render frame. I can however not find a tutorial that takes me through the process. ???

- install lilypond
- make sure that it shows up in file > preferences > external tools > render frames
- insert a render frame
- edit > edit source
- pick lilyipond
- type the notes in the "enter code" field

or just use lilypond to create a notes sheet and import it as pdf or svg (svg might only work with the scribus development version... i tend to recall that there was a bug report on that...)
