MSCORE(1)	MuseScore - Create, play and share sheet music!	     MSCORE(1)

       mscore -	MuseScore sheet	music editor.

       MuseScore is a free and open source WYSIWYG typesetting program for mu-
       sical scores, released under the	GNU General Public Licence.

       mscore [options]	[filename(s)]

       MuseScore or musescore is set as	an alias for mscore on some systems.

       This manual page	documents command line useage of mscore. See also:


       For help	with the full MuseScore	program	see the	Online Handbook:


       A summary of options is included	below. Running mscore without  options
       launches	the full MuseScore program and opens any specified file(s).

       -v     Displays	MuseScore's current version and	revision number	in the
	      command line without starting the	graphical interface.

       -d     Starts MuseScore in debug	mode.

       -L     Starts MuseScore in layout debug mode.

       -s     Disables the integrated software synthesizer.

       -m     Disables MIDI input.

       -a <driver>
	      Use audio	driver:	jack, alsa, pulse, portaudio.

       -n     Starts with the new score	wizard regardless of  preference  set-
	      ting for start mode.

       -I     Displays all MIDI	input on the console.

       -O     Displays all MIDI	output on the console.

       -o <filename>
	      Exports  the  currently opened file to the specified <filename>.
	      The file type depends on the  filename  extension.  This	option
	      switches to the "converter" mode and avoids any graphical	inter-
	      face. You	can also add a filename	before the -o if you  want  to
	      import  and  export  files  from	the  command line. For example
	      mscore "My Score.mscz" -o	"My Score.pdf".

       -r <dpi>
	      Determines the output resolution for the output to "*.png" files
	      in the converter mode. The default resolution is 300 dpi.

       -T <margin>
	      Trims  exported  PNG and SVG images to remove surrounding	white-
	      space around the score. The specified number of pixels of	white-
	      space will be added as a margin; use 0 for a tightly cropped im-
	      age. For SVG, this option	works only with	single-page scores.

       -x <factor>
	      Scales the score display and other GUI elements by the specified
	      factor, for use with high	resolution displays.

       -S <style>
	      Loads a style file; useful when you convert with the -o option.

       -p <name>
	      Execute the named	plugin.

       -F     Use only the standard built-in presets or	"factory-settings" and
	      delete preferences.

       -R     Use only the standard built-in  presets  or  "factory-settings",
	      but do not delete	preferences.

       -i     Load  icons from the file	system.	Useful if you want to edit the
	      MuseScore	icons and preview the changes.

       -e     Enable experimental features.

       -c <pathname>
	      Set config path.

       -t     Enable Test Mode.

       -M <file>
	      Specify MIDI import operations file.

       -w     No web view in Start Center.
