The following text describes how to work with the MEI Score Editor. For this purpose, the use of the items of the Palette will be demonstrated and the properties of the elements from the Outline View will be mentioned. Since the MEI Score Editor creates and modifies MEI documents, this subchapter follows the hierarchical structure of an MEI document.
Please note: The manipulation of the score is done in the Outline View or, respectively, with the context menu of the Score View. Creation of new elements can be achieved either by dragging new elements from the Palette into the Outline View for creation or by using the context menu of an element in the Outline View/Score View. When you have marked an element in the Outline View, you can also delete it using the context menu or modify its properties using the Properties View.
