The basic commands for working with score files are located in the File menu.
File Menu Commands
Opens a new, blank score.
|New Menu Recording||It is possible to transfer a piece you are playing to Mus2 via a midi keyboard. After that, because of the shortcomings of the Midi format, you would need to do the final touches and ornamentations in Mus2.|
|Open||Opens a previously saved score.|
|Close||Closes the current score.|
|Save||Saves the current score.|
|Save As||Saves the current score with a different file name.|
|Sends the current score to your printer.|
|Export||see Exporting Files|
|Score Information||see Score Information|
|Clean Up||Removes all unused symbols and tunings from the score.|
|Quit||Closes all open scores and quits Mus2.|
The Save and Save As commands store your score with the “.mus2” extension in Mus2’s own score format. This file format is generally very compact and suitable for transferring over the Internet.
