Version history

capella-scan 8.0-25 (Nov. 20, 2018)


  • In transposing texts invalid text characters could occur. This is fixed.

  • Edit text in Edit window: During typing at the end of the text the last character was marked. This is fixed.

  • Texts "J=..." are now converted into tempo information after recognition.

  • Problems with allocation of staves without stave descriptions are solved.

  • Notes standing very close to each other and thus touching do not merge into one any more as they did before.

  • In the "Save notation" dialog files opened in capella were not displayed when the file name was very long. This is fixed.

  • Improvements regarding the interface to capella 8: The timeout limit is increased to 15s, and capella from version 8.0-6 on will be moved into the foreground.

  • MusicXML export of chord symbols did not always work. This is solved now.

  • MusicXML export did not work reliably when umlauts existed in the file path. This is solved now.

  • Python installation extended by:

  • Python23\Lib\encodings\utf_8.pyc,, Python23\Lib\site.pyc

  • Lags in automatic image optimization eliminated.

  • When changing the text type surrounding objects could be affected. This is solved.

  • In "Save level of recognition for single window" a better file name is suggested now.


capella-tune 6.1-15.0 (Nov. 20, 2018)

  • During playback via MIDI sound card volumes between different voices could get mixed up. This is solved now.
  • Sustained trills in combination with articulation symbols (for example pedal mark) could lead to uninitialized note objects. This is fixed now.
  • Playback of grace notes: With two or more grace notes the setting "on the beat" was not correctly realized. This is now fixed.
  • Swing error in staves with upbeat with uneven number of eighths corrected.


capella-scan 8.0-24.1 and capella scan & play (Nov. 30, 2017)

with new captune 6.1-14

  • version 1.41
  • Loading of embedded bitmaps from pdf files: double referenced bitmaps are now loaded only once.
  • Bitmaps with newer format can now be opened.
  • During SystemTemplate export to a capx file a program error occurred: A cap file could be created but was faulty. This is now fixed.
  • The instrument description “Baritone Sax” is now recognized.
  • Beam groups with small and large notes were always separated in capella. This is now fixed.
  • The text object “tempo change” now also yields a functional tempo change not only a tempo change at the beginning of a stave.
  • When clicking into the first system during playback and this system was single-staved, then the cursor jumped into the second system. This behavior is now fixed.
  • During search for wrongly filled measures (via “Search…”), now the entire measure is scrolled into the field of vision.
  • The validity of pedal and dynamic symbols is now always set to “curly brace”.
  • In chord symbols, lower cases were sometimes not recognized as transposable text. This is now fixed.
  • During text editing, sometimes the font got lost. This is now fixed.
  • Improvement of character alignment of text elements, especially with black letters.
  • Bugfix: Display error during double dotting.
  • In keys with five or more b the octave position in the key signature was not correct. This is now fixed.
  • Single voice playback did not work when voices were missing (voice numbers were skipped).
  • Bugfix: Reading of pdf texts.
  • Bugfix: Crash during recognition of bitmaps with too high resolution.


capella-scan and capella scan & play (June 20, 2016)
with new captune 6.1-9.4

  • More tolerant handling of faulty csc files.
  • Notes are separated rhythmically as default when no genuine two voice notation was found in the staff.
  • When all criteria for staff identification were deselected, the manual staff description from staff properties was erroneously ignored as well.
  • The criterion "bars through staves" was sometimes not considered.
  • Small note heads were sometimes recognized with large stems and then arrived as large notes in capella.
