Only standard features are visible by default in Audiveris user interface.

Some advanced features are gathered by Topics, that we can explicitly activate.

This is done via the Tools | Advanced Topics... pulldown menu.

Input Step

This box allows to define which step is automatically trigerred on an input file.

Default Plugin

This allows to interactively choose a new default plugin among the declared ones, since by default the first declared plugin is set as the default one (See Plugins section).

Target output folders

new in 5.3

These boxes govern where output files are located by default.

  • Input sibling: If set, all outputs are stored in the same folder as the input file (unless the -output option is specified on command line).
  • Separate folders: If set, all outputs related to a given input file are stored in a separate folder, created according to the input file name without its extension.

For further explanation, see section on Standard folders.

Global font ratio

new in 5.3

The slider allows to select a larger font size used throughout the application views.

We can pick up a different user language.
As of this writing, available locales are:

  • en (English), the default
  • fr (French), still partially implemented…

Advanced Topics

Each of these topics can gather several related features.

  • SAMPLES deals with sample repositories and classifier training.
  • ANNOTATIONS deals with production of symbol annotations.
  • PLOTS deals with display of plots for scale, stem, staff or header projections.
  • SPECIFIC_VIEWS deals with specific sheet tabs (staff free, staff-line glyphs).
  • SPECIFIC_ITEMS deals with display of specific items on views (attachments, glyph axis, …)
  • DEBUG deals with many debug features (notably browsing a book internal hierarchy).

Note that an application restart is needed to take any modified selection into account, because of the various impacts this implies on UI elements.
