Many people wish to publish their music scores on
the Internet and run up against the concepts of
server address, password, etc.. Here's the solution:
the User Space.
You will be able in a few clicks, to create your
personal space on the Internet and share your work.
||Note : Users Spaces are
reserved to registered users. If
you're evaluating the software,
you can see the already created
User Spaces on this page.
This is the first step and the most important. It
occurs only once and the question you have to answer
is: "What name
shall I give to my space?".
It won't be
possible to rename your User Space afterwards
and you must choose a clear and judicious name.
The name must not contain any accented characters,
space, or dot.
So, only letters, numbers are allowed, possibly
separated by the underscore '_'.
Anyway, the forbidden characters not allowed can not
be typed in.
The name must consist of at least 4 characters and
not more than 64.
This name will be used to share the Internet address
of your site.
For example, if you choose the name "will_smith",
visitors will connect to your User Space typing in
the address bar of their Internet browser: "
First, navigate to your User Space setup from the
software via the system menu ( '?' on Windows,
'the name of the software( on Mac) "
Internet> Manage my User Space" or more directly
by the dedicated icon in the "Edit" palette.
A default name will be proposed. You can change it.
If the name is already taken by someone else a
suggestion will be made by our server.
Your User Space is now created on our server. It is
empty. We'll see how to fill it.
