Adding Neck Diagrams to Music Reader forScore

forScore for iPad

The fonts Chords and Scales don’t take advantage of new text features only that updated apps and operating systems offer but from universally applicable features as well. With the release of iOS 11 the music reader app forScore was updated to Apple’s new mobile operating system.

Although forScore does not support custom fonts yet, it is a breeze on iPads supporting Drag ‘n Drop to add chord-, scale- and arpeggio diagrams to its sheet music and lyrics sheets using Apple’s free app Keynote and the fonts Chords and Scales.

 

Creating Neck Diagrams

  • open the app forScore on your iPad
  • open Apple Keynote in Split View
  • in Apple Keynote create your custom chord and scale diagrams using the fonts Chords and Scales
  • drag and drop your diagrams from Keynote’s slide panel into the music sheet
  • apply different colors, backgrounds or styles to the diagrams
  • adjust the diagram size if necessary
