.mxl Files

Postby Nikolaus Hold » 19 May 2017 15:37

For some of my Edition Notes the template 'mxl' was added by the administrator. Now the text looks quite overloaded. Should the type of the file not be apparent from the second parameter in the 'Media:' term?

In the past, many Finale and Sibelius versions were supported. Why not create a new entry that means MXL file. Unfortunately, the MXL template is currently not supported as a parameter behind 'Media:', only the XML template.

Hi Nikolaus, first of all thank you for your numerous (100+) contributions to CPDL!

Your suggestions will combined with others that we received from other users, or that were highlighted by administrators. They will be implemented after upgrading the MediaWiki software to a newer version, as support for the current version will be soon discontinued, so we are prioritizing this MediaWiki upgrade at the moment.

I have a specific question for you: you are one of the few users that still use the "old" add score process, that requires to manually copy-and-paste file names, wiki code, etc., and that has been superseded (although not completely replaced) by the new "automatic" process, where most manual actions are replaced by automatic scripts. Some of the suggestions received so far are incompatible or very hard to implement if the old process is maintained, so I'm considering to completely discontinue the old process. Are there any specific reasons why you still prefer the old process? I can try to maintain them available in the automatic process, too.

Max

I accidentally tried to upload an uncompressed MusicXML file (.xml), and got an error message saying that this format is not accepted.

Now I wonder what other MusicXML files there are in the CPDL that require to distinguish them from the .mxl files by decorating the Edition Notes of the latter with a {{MXL}} template.
