USING A IPAD WITH TYROS 4
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:39:20 AM »
I use Musescore to put music on the computer and then print it out. I do this to be selective with the amount of music I have. Buying a music book is like buying a CD - you may only want one track!
I then copy the file to Dropbox which is fine for my laptop, but my aged Ipad will only accept .pdf files. Just spent a happy afternoon copying all my music to .pdf and putting it on Dropbox.
This does not seem to be the easiest way to get music on an ipad so I was trying to find an easier way.

You can batch convert your Musescore's .mxl files to .pdf files as per discussion of the following thread without having to convert your xml files one by one:
https://musescore.org/en/node/5948

Just copy the following 2 lines into mscz2pdf.bat (for Windows), and save the file in the folder containing all your mxl files, then run mscz2pdf.bat on a command prompt window (CMD.exe) to batch convert all your mxl files to PDF files:

SET nightly="C:\Program Files (x86)\MuseScore 2\bin\MuseScore.exe"
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%a IN ('DIR /B *.mxl') DO %nightly% "%%a" -o "%%~na.pdf"

Thanks,
