Re: [Rosegarden-user] How do I set a scale in Rosegarden?

All of this, and much more -- key/scale-specific highlight/stripes, 
labeling and coloring notes by scale degree, display of notes' chord 
functions (root, 3rd, 5th, etc) -- is available in my fork of Rosegarden 
at 
https://sourceforge.net/u/thanks4opensrc/rosegarden/ci/thanks4opensrc_devel/tree/ 
and https://github.com/thanks4opensource/rosegarden-fork.


As far as feature requests go, I submitted #500 
(https://sourceforge.net/p/rosegarden/feature-requests/500/) over a year 
ago but it received no responses or discussion. I implemented a version 
of it back in October, and apologize for not submitting it as a merge 
request at that time. But there had been no action on my merges for the 
six months prior to that, and I eventually gave up and instead released 
my independent fork of Rosegarden.


Ironically, this feature was one of the two things that originally got 
me involved in Rosegarden development. I misunderstood that the 
new-at-the-time "Highlight black notes" mode was locked to C major 
concert pitch instead of matching the current key signature as I 
intuitively assumed it would (like "Highlight triads"). I even 
advertised my ignorance in a February 2022 post to the rosegarden-devel 
list (https://sourceforge.net/p/rosegarden/mailman/message/37612752/). 
Ah, those long-ago days when I was blissfully naive about all things 
Rosegarden. ;)


Finally, if anyone wants to try the fork's code (or merge some of it 
into official Rosegarden) note that it currently only implements major 
and minor scales (in any desired key). It does not yet have the 
additional capabilities proposed in FR500, such as modes (dorian, 
lydian, etc) or arbitrary non-diatonic scales (whole tone, half-whole, 
etc). Also note that I'm on the verge of releasing a major update so you 
might want to wait for that.


As a further irony, Musecore did have these features (modes, scales) in 
its "piano roll editor" which in all other ways was vastly inferior to 
Rosegarden's "matrix" (it could only edit a single 
staff/instrument/part/"segment" at once, had a clumsy interface for 
manipulating notes, etc). But that was Musescore 3, and they completely 
removed the editor in Musescore 4! I guess some people are just haters 
on anything that's not standard music notation. ;)


Thanks for this opportunity to offer the open-source software I've 
contributed to those who might be interested in what it provides.

   If that's not good enough, feel free to open a feature request. 
Philip can probably implement this pretty quickly as he implemented the 
black keys mode.
