Title: New version of harmony assistent cant read demos
Post by Lia on Oct 23rd, 2017, 9:21pm
Hello I have ben using with out a problem pdf to music and Harmony assistant in order to transpose songs.


I have run the new version of harmony assistant , but now it doesn't read the songs I sent by exporting from pdf to music.
when I open the demos in pdf to music it shows the songs, when I open it after sending in Harmoney the demos file doesn't show the songs but rather different ones.
So I cant transpose.

my rehearsal is tomorrow.
any one can help ?
I have tried to uninstall and that re install but didn't help.

Could you first take a look at the exact number of each program. Look at the "?" menu, first line of the menu and tell us ? (Both versions might not match.)
Try exporting in musicXML format from PDFTM and use the "import" function in HA.

So only now I understood what you meant .
I couldn't open musicXML in my bought pdftm , ( took me time to understand the short ward pdftm), but I could open it on the free version of pdftm.
I did so and exported the file to harmony through musicXML. than tried to import it using the import button as you advised . but still same problem, new harmony cannot read the demos :(
what do you think should be may next step ?
warmest regards,
Lia

I seem to have some problems in understanding the situation...
So, here's the story from my point of view :
1- You have a few files in .pdf format (the "demos", I guess)
2- You want to modify them in H(armony) A(ssistant) but they need to be converted to a suitable format.
3- You import the files into PDFT(o)M(usic) and then export the result files (.myr format) so as to open them into HA.
4- The problem is that HA can't open these files or at least the files do not match the original scores.
I suggest you attach one of these .pdf files to your next post, so that I can try to import them into HA. I am running the latest version of HA (9.7.1c) and I can also try the freshly developed R(elease)C(andidate) version as well...

Pour avoir la version de pdftm:
Menu: PDF to Music / A propos

Ma version de pdftm: 162

Je viens de faire le test avec HA 963i et 964b3, ça ne s'ouvre pas (message "version de fichier plus récente")

C'est OK avec la dernière version de HA 972b1 et la version d'essai 980rc1

Pour Melody Player avec sa version 964b1, message d'erreur "msc=not found"
Avec la version 965 message d'erreur "impossible d'ajouter à la liste", mais le logiciel s'ouvre.
Une fois MP ouvert on peut ajouter le même fichier à la liste sans problème... Bizarre ! Est-ce à cause des caractères russes dans le nom de fichier ?

Hello and Thank you very much.
Your description is correct. one thing is when I had the old version of harmony assistant there was no problem it read the songs from pdftm when I opend the open botten directly from the demos.
the new version of HA when I press open it opens some songs none of them are mine.
I want to send you a print screen of pdftm open on export to HA but the file is not sending it. and below HA on open in demos.

although it is a different language you can see it is diffrent songs and different number of songs.

do you still need me to upload scors ?

Once you have taken the screen scan (with the PrintScreen key or whatever its name) the system probably asks you to save it somewhere on your hard disk. Remember the name and the place.
When you send a message on this forum, click the search button just below the message input box, find the screen copy file and open it. Then send the message without clicking on the "preview" button (it would break the link to your file).

Thank you.
I took the print screen, it doesn't ask me where to put it, and I can only paste it on a ward document, save it , and open it on the brows button on the forum of myriad.
it attaches it , but when I press post, I get a message that the file is note being able to send and the type of file that are sent.

Post by Lia on Oct 24th, 2017, 6:46pm
Would it help if I sent the attachment by mail to myriad?
can you take it from there ?


I am a  singer,  It is so important for me to be able to transpose. I have used pdftm full version and HA for 2 years.

What to do next?

Look at your instant messages on this forum. I've posted and address where you can e-mail your picture (I hope)

Forgive me for pointing out the obvious, but are you sure that both programs are looking in the same directory?  Sometimes, after an upgrade the software goes back to looking for files in the programmed default directory instead of the directory where I keep all my scores and expect HA to always look.  It always dumbfounds me until I realize what happened (again!).

Thanks, Paul.
The problem has been "solved" via regular e-mails. Apparently, there were two issues : one was the choice of folders and the other one the extension of the exported files that didn't appear to be "standard" (.myr).

Glad to know there's been a resolution.
