  Looking for a few Windows testers
Posted by: Zubersoft - Today, 05:50 AM - Forum: News - No Replies

As part of the next update for the Windows version, I have replaced the graphics rendering framework in MobileSheets in order to prevent rendering issues that have been observed on ARM devices such as the Surface Pro X. This required changing every piece of code across the entire app that does any kind of custom rendering, which includes rendering PDFs, images and text/chord pro files, annotations, the radial menu, printing, link points, and smart buttons. I have been doing side-by-side testing to ensure that this is a seamless transition, but I'd really like a few users to test these changes out to ensure I don't negatively impact any of their songs or the features they rely on. I should mention that this testing can only be done by users of the FastSpring version, as I don't have a way to distribute the Microsoft Store version for testing. 

If I can get a couple of volunteers just do a quick checkout, I would really appreciate it. I should also add that one of the major benefits of this change is that almost everything that is rendered in the Windows version should be identical to the Android version now, and I can port changes between versions with less effort, as they will use the same rendering framework now. The loading of text and chord pro files is much, much faster now as well, so it's possible to load a setlist with 50 chord pro files, for exapmle, without having a major delay before the first page is shown.


  Import PDF meta data - field mapping
Posted by: andreaskagedal - Today, 12:50 AM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (3)

Hi, first post.

As far as I understand, importing of meta data in a PDF into the meta data fields of a song in MobileSheets now works. I found this conversation that provides a little bit of information: https://www.zubersoft.com/mobilesheets/f...-8020.html

But there is no details on how this actually works. In particular hat PDF meta data fields are mapped to what MobileSheet song meta data fields?

Here are the PDF fields (I think):
Title, Author, Subject, Keywords, Creator, Producer

In that thread Mike says that
Title -> Title
Author -> Composers
Subject -> Genres

Is that it? Or will any of the others be mapped in some way? Is this documented somewhere? The manual seems a bit old (3.6.2) and I cannot find any info there.

I am producing my PDFConfused with a python program using th pypdf library. I can write several meta data fields, including "CustomFields". Is this the way to do it to add things like Artists and Lyricists?

  How to split screen
Posted by: franknally - 02-23-2024, 02:40 PM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (1)

Recently I was able to have MobileSheets on one side of the screen and another app on the other. I'm no longer able to do that and can't find any information on it. Any suggestions?

  Trouble Importing Music to MobileSheets from OneDrive
Posted by: cuthbertdavies - 02-22-2024, 04:43 PM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (2)


I've been using MobileSheets for about a year, mainly for live orchestra performances where we all use tablets to read music. Recently, I encountered an issue where I uploaded a new piece of music to my OneDrive account to import it into MobileSheets. However, when I tried to import from OneDrive within MobileSheets, the music wasn't there. In fact, I only see one piece of music listed, whereas before I had a long list to choose from when importing.
I'm not sure what went wrong here and would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you!

  Pen recognition issue, takes 2 tries to write.
Posted by: eonyou - 02-22-2024, 12:46 PM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (2)

Hello, I am a Galaxy tab S7 which I use in orchestra settings with a frequent markings with palm touching the screen in a rehearsal conditions.

There is an issue of writing down on the tablet - it quite often takes me 2 tries to get something to write as one can see from the video below. Without palm (last few tries) everything is fine but with palm on, it is quite frustrating. Below is the link.


I do have Enable Touch Input in Stylus Mode turned on, but turning it off changes nothing, exactly same.

Please help so that I am no longer hindered from writing freely on the music during the rehearsal Smile

ps. it should also be noted that I didn't seem to recall having this problem until today, when in the morning, the tablet went through an update of UI... maybe it has something to do with it?


  MobileSheets randomly switches between layers.
Posted by: rwstout - 02-21-2024, 09:11 PM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (3)

We found this in Android and iPadOS: when there is one layer visible and there are more layers availble, MobileSheets sometimes randomly shows another layer.
We can't find any logic in this behaviour.

  Samsung Mobile phone to windows tablet?
Posted by: joerecord - 02-20-2024, 11:30 PM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (3)

Good morning, Mobilesheets Pro on my Android phone is a pleasure, however, the display is too small for me to read. How can I share my music sheets with my Surface Pro Windows 11?  Is it necessary for me to purchase Mobilesheets Pro on my tablet?
Thanks, Joe Guitar.

  How to manage PDFs with multiple parts?
Posted by: CParmerlee - 02-20-2024, 02:57 AM - Forum: MobileSheets (Android) - Replies (18)

One of the ensembles I play with distributes PDFs with all parts (for a given composition) in a single PDF.  I have been looking for the best way to handle this.  If I always played the same part, it would be no problem because I can just select the page(s) for that one part.

The problem is that MobileSheets saves this page selection with the song itself.  Let's say I have a setlist for July 4 that includes America the Beautiful, and I know I am playing trombone-3, I have no problem setting that up to display only the trombone-3 page(s).  But if I have another setlist for July 15 playing the same song, and on July 15 I am playing Trombone-2, this doesn't work.  That is to say, I can't prepare my setlists in advance because one will override the other.

I realize I can manually go through the entire library and break all the original PDFs into multiple PDFs, one for each part, but that is a lot of work.  Am I missing something important here?  Is there some way to do this without having to crack open each PDF externally to MobileSheets?

Sad Companion on m2 Mac using UTM/QEMU and win 11 ARM?
Posted by: rlyacht - 02-20-2024, 01:30 AM - Forum: MobileSheets Companion - Replies (5)

I don't have a windows machine, and I'm trying to set up windows in a VM on my m2 mac mini.  I'm using the UTM front end to QEMU, and installing the Windows 11 insider preview for ARM (dev version) which is free.  When it got to connecting to my network, it couldn't find it no matter what I did.  I was able to bypass the network setup, using The FAQ in the UTM Discord.  After all that, I can browse to the directory where I downloaded mobilesheets companion, but it doesn't allow me to run the executable.

If you've done this already and have some tips, please let me know.  Or, if you know it's not possible, that would also be handy to know.

  Note windows remain open in the background when connected to the device

Note windows remain open in the background when connected to the device
Hello, I have detected the following problem. I have two Android devices connected to WIFI (primary and secondary). I have stored notes on my songs, which are displayed on the secondary device when changing songs and remain until I acknowledge them by typing. If I briefly call up several songs one after the other on the primary device, the notes on the secondary device all remain open in the background. After that, I have to close all the notes on the secondary device one by one. It would be nice if when a song is changed by the primary device, the already open note window would also close automatically and only the note window of the current song would remain.
