New update is frustrating! - Problem Fix

UPDATE Problem Fixed. Thank you to the developers for your help!

Just updated to the latest version yesterday and all the annotation options changed size. I can no longer reproduce the same real pencil like markings in my score with my Apple Pencil.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your feedback. This can be adjusted by changing the "variable width" option in forScore's settings panel (it defaults to Medium but you can set it to Low or Off to reduce the effect). If you haven't done so already, please update to 11.0.1—we made some changes to this, in particular reducing tilt sensitivity that was skewing the average size of drawings and should make things look a lot more like you're used to. If you have any questions, you can contact us directly by choosing Support from forScore's tools menu. Otherwise, please consider updating your review to better reflect your overall experience using it. Thanks!

Signes de renvois

Les signes de renvois devraient pouvoir être de différentes couleurs. Pour l’instant, la navigation qui permet de créer des
« boutons » ne se fait qu’avec le mauve.

My profession as a musician is dependant on this app, now, as it’s become essential for me. This is backed up by amazingly dedicated developers who have been working hard and constantly for years now making this one of the best score readers on the market, and have always been responsive to bug reports and feature requests.

Despite the higher than average app price, I only need remind myself that I can pay for it multiple times over in an hour of paid work and that it’s paid for itself thousands of times over in my work over the past few years.

Long live ForScore.
