Updates on the new Roman numerals input
Reminder: What are Roman numerals?
Roman numerals are one way of writing music chords. They help identify chords in a key, no matter which notes are used. Musicians use Roman numerals to analyze the chord progressions in a piece of music.
💡 Learn how to use this feature in Flat here.
To enhance the overall user experience, we've implemented a set of helpful tooltips to provide clear guidance for using Roman numerals in your compositions. Additionally, we have made several adjustments to optimize the feature's usability with a keyboard, ensuring a seamless and efficient workflow.
New button for adding and removing measures
In order to significantly enhance your workflow and make score editing a breeze, we've implemented a user-friendly button directly within the score interface. With this handy addition, you can add or remove measures by simply clicking on the designated button, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual adjustments.
💡 This intuitive feature lets you achieve greater efficiency and flexibility when working on scores, saving you valuable time and effort throughout the editing process.
New option to export without time signatures
Thanks to your feedback we're excited to introduce a frequently requested feature: the ability to export scores without any time signatures. This allows for greater customization in your creations, giving you the freedom to explore and personalize your compositions even further.

Accidentals better interpreted by ornaments
We've made significant improvements to the interpretation of ornaments, such as trills and mordents, in relation to key signatures and previous accidentals within the measure. With these enhancements, the playback of these expressive embellishments now accurately reflects the intended musical interpretation, taking into account the appropriate key signature and any preceding accidentals. This refinement ensures a more faithful representation of your compositions, providing a richer and more nuanced musical experience.
