The Medieval Options Dialog Box

The Medieval Options dialog box is where you can adjust Medieval parameters for your scores or for the general behavior of Medieval 2.

There are two sections:

Document Options

(These options can be adjusted for each score.)

  • White Notation: check this if you want “white” shapes for notes or ligatures (but you can toogle any time between black and white with the Notehead tool.)
  • Convex Ligatures: check this if you want convex rather than concave ligatures.
  • Favor gregorian style: If checked, the high part of the podatus will have specific look.
  • Compound neume insterstice: the default space inbetween parts when creating a compound neume.
  • Custos symbol: this is where the default custos symbol can be chosen.
  • Note music font: this is normally “Neuma 24” be there might be more font style available in the future.

Global Options

(These options are global for all scores.)

  • Adjust time signature automatically: normally, you should keep this option always checked!
  • Display neume's name upon creation: check this if you want Medieval to send you a friendly notification with the name of the neume just created.
  • User palette transparency: Medieval will fade the tool palette automatically if not in focus.
  • Activate keyboard shortcuts: if you currently do not use Medieval, it is recommended to uncheck this.
  • Update notifications: check this if you want Medieval to (gently) notify you when an update is available.
  • Manual positioning, small/big step: this rules the spaces used by the Nudge Tool.
  • Interface language: select your language of choice for Medieval 2 user interface (the other parts of Finale won't be affected!)
