|Version||Date||What's New in this Version|
|184.108.40.206||10-October-2013||(n.b. install file names are the same as 9.14.9)
Compatibility with 9.15 (due December 2013) preferences.
cmd-. can be used for hear dialog (as in 9.15).
|220.127.116.11||18-August-2013||Fix to vertically locked annotations when reading 9.15 file version. Fix to zoom factor in Intel Mac preferences. Fix for color mismatches between Windows and Macs.|
|18.104.22.168||22-January-2013||Windows 7 (and Windows 8) compatibility - resolved the flickering and occasional unresponsiveness. It is recommended that Vista (SP2) Compatibility is removed. This MUST be done with the executable in its final destination (e.g. in c:\Program Files\). To do it, right click on the executable, select 'properties' (at the bottom of the pop-up list). Then choose the 'Compatibility' pane and clear the Compatibility option.
If you have already done it and are simply replacing the executable, it is not necessary as the information is stored in the Registry, not the executable itself.
On Windows, removed alt-menu alternative to shift-menu as it was incompatible with alt-letter short cut.
Ability to read next version of Lime files.
|22.214.171.124||14-October-2012||Fixes related but different printing problems on Windows and PPC Macs (sorry).
Prevent XML import crash with long annotations, and a minor XML import annotation placement issue.
|9.14.9||24-September-2012||Many more XML import improvements, including ornaments and hairpin placement. Note that there are as yet few if any improvements in XML export.
On Macs, allow alt-menu to mean same as shift-menu. This is a work-around for Macbook Airs' ability on Lion to forget the meaning of the shift key.
Fix chord drags where there are grace notes.
Fix midi export on Intel Macs.
Improvements to layout accuracy at different zoom levels and when printing. On Intel macs, pages are no longer shown while they are being printed.
Fix crashing when Nachschlags are inserted or imported at the end of the piece.
On Windows 7 (and 8) issue warning if compatibility mode has not been set to Vista (SP2), which is still required.
Option to specify the default zoom factor for new or imported pieces.
Added ability to draw rectangles (n.b. these will appear as lines in earlier versions of Lime).
Ability to read next version of the file format, which will be introduced in version 9.15.
|9.14.8||23-April-2012||GOOD QUALITY INTEL-MAC PRINTING and, therefore, fully functional on Lion!
Fixed 'Copy Rectangle' on Mac OSX (high resolution and, therefore good quality, unless Shift-key used).
Fixed nasty bug in Text Assistant introduced by 9.14.7 (sorry)
Fixed XML export crash on Mac OSX when non-standard fonts were used.
Fixed inconsistencies in use of Shift key and menus - you now always get what you see.
Minor improvements to display at high resolutions.
|9.14.7||04/04/12||Remember different default directories for Music, Midi and XML open/import and for export.
OSX PPC version - Fix saving to PDF and recognize all PostScript printers, so that high quality output may be created. N.b. High quality still only supported in PPC version.
Fix END key handling for low vision users
More improvements to MusicXML
|9.14||02/02/12||Common Mac OSX and Windows version.
Modified zoom options. Add Edit->Zoom option to temporarily change zooming. Zooming specified on Layout menu can be saved.
Licence key and other preference saving fixed on Windows 7. On Windows 7 and Vista, LIME.INI is moved to: \Users\username\AppData\Local\ On Windows XP (or 2000) it has moved to: \Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\ N.B. On Windows 7, executable MUST be set as Vista (SP2) compatibility otherwse there will be disturbing flickers and hearing interupts when other applications are active.
Further improvements to MusicXML import, fixing crash when there are resizable hairpins. MusicXML support is still very basic and only supports version 1. Improved support is planned.
Built-in Quicktime synthesizer on OSX.
Various bug fixes.
|9.13||11/11/11||Windows Only. New Zoom options.
NIFF is no longer supported.
|9.12||12/12/11||Pre-Release for Mac OSX. Beta Version supporting Intel.
On Intel Macs, it is recommended that the Intel version (which works on Lion) is used for editing as it is more efficient; and the PPC version is only used when a high quality print is needed. The Intel version does not yet support high quality printing (as Apple deprecated the necessary interface). On Snow Leopard or earlier, the PPC version is needed (on Intel Macs, running under Rosetta) to produce high quality prints.
NIFF is no longer supported.
|9.11||09/19/07||New Lime binary format, to support more zoom factors.|

|8.53||09/23/06||Fixed bugs with fingerings in Enlarge mode and note duration editing in scanned music.|
|8.52||06/19/06||Fixed bug enabling "Voice to Staff Above/Below" on last bar on system. Fixed problems with Extend Line to Here for dashed lines and brackets.|
|8.51||06/05/06||Fixed bug with staff drag when voices switch between staves. Fixed a bug which sometimes supressed drawing of braces at the beginning of the system. Fixes to readout for unsighted users in German Lime. Added more MusicXML import features.
MIDI export now exports only voices that are part of the currently selected notation context.

|8.49||12/07/05||Fixed some Import MusicXML problems.
Test release of German version of Lime for PC; German translation by Reinhard Krawulksy. Anyone interested in translating Lime to another language can download the German version; in addition to translating the manual you will need to translate the program (which is done in the PhrasesGerman.txt file).
|8.48||11/26/05||Added Alt key functions in Windows dialogs. Fixed some plotting bugs and bugs in international Lime.|
|8.47||09/11/05||Update for unsighted users.|
|8.46||09/01/05||When a part is delete in Parts and Voices, Lime is better behaved when "Use This Arrangement of Parts and Voices for Rest of Piece" is unchecked.
Improved grace note spacing. Improved automatic scrolling.
Further improvements to red rests and Import NIFF, and improvementes to Import MusicXML.
|8.45||08/17/05||Support for triple-dotted note values, and dotted breves.
Fixed bug in the Hear option that was introduced in the most recent pre-release.
|8.44||08/09/05||Added ESC key as a way to stop Hear option (as well as being a way to exit annotation modes). Hear option stops playing more quickly in Windows Lime.
Improved red rest placement for scanned music.
|8.43||07/23/05||Fixes to Import NIFF for rests in the same timeselice as notes. Fixes to rest icon function for scanned music rest insertion. Fixes to screen updates for Show OMR Image menu option.
Added control-delete as keyboard equivalent for Kill.
|8.42||07/14/05||More improvements to Import NIFF for scanned music. If you are editing scanned music, you can click the rest icon in the Piano Window to insert a rest before the currently selected note. This is a quick way to add rests that the scanner missed.
Fixed recent Windows Lime bug in enabling Options menu item.
Fixed minor OSX Lime plotting bugs in dialogs, and fixed a recent problem introduced in Import MIDI.
|8.39||07/04/05||A new menu option, Next Rhythm Error, is helpful when correcting errors in scanned music.
Two new Text Assistant menu options are available, for ornaments and other symbols. Some backslash expressions have changed; \++ and \-- are double-sharp and double-flat; \alt+ and \alt- are sharp and flat for chord symbol alterations.
When the currently selected note is not visible, the Note Entry menu option stays on that note, and no longer switches to the nearest visible note. This makes for fewer steps in entering multi-voice music.
A new parameter, "dot discrepency ok for shared noteheads", optionally allows sharing of noteheads between stem-up and stem-down voice, even when one voice has a dotted duration and the other does not.
|8.37||06/17/05||Improved handling of lyrics and annotations in Import NIFF, and improvements to red rests that appear when you edit scanned music.
Fixed on-screen positioning of whole rests for Windows XP.
Improvements for support of foreign-language Lime.
|8.34||05/05/05||Fixes to navigation controls for unsighted users. Fix to accidental spacing for certain note clusters. Corrected Windows font dialog's point size when Layout-Enlarge or Layout-Reduce is active.|
|8.33||03/31/05||Key signature dialog has new checkbox "Use this key for remainder of piece". This is useful for correcting misinterpreted key signatures in scanned music.
Fixed bugs in Import NIFF with append to existing piece. Fixed bugs in Import MusicXML with grace notes. Fixed bug which sometimes put a time signature at the end of the piece, after you deleted all the remaining bars in a piece. Fixed Hear option so it does not hog all the CPU time for Windows, and so metronome beat indicator updates properly.
Fixes to screen reader handling of annotations, Hear option metronome feature, and navigation in Braille window.
|8.32||3/21/05||Extensive improvements to make Lime accessible for blind users. A special accessible version of Lime is being developed together with Dancing Dots, Inc., and will be distributed by Dancing Dots. The accessible version includes additional navigation features, user query and explicit screen reader support, integrated sheet music scanning (using SharpEye's Liszt recognition engine), integrated Braille music display and Braille printing (using Dancing Dot's Goodfeel engine), and other features for accessibility.
Many internal changes to support a future release of Lime in German. Reinhard Krawulsky is undertaking the enormous effort to do the translation of the menus, dialogs, messages, and manual; this work is still in progress.
Export MIDI now allows you to set the number of divisions per quarter for the MIDI file's encoding.
Fixed plotting bug in note brackets that extend over system breaks. Fixed a dual-monitor bug under Windows.
|8.31||3/9/05||In MusicXML import, Lime now automatically detects xml files that have untrustworthy accidentals, and automatically makes adjustments.
In MusicXML import, Lime now better handles files that have system breaks specified but do not have page breaks specified. Lime can now retain the system breaks while adding new page breaks.
|8.30||2/23/05||Fixed bug in transposing chord symbols that are associated with rests.
Fixed Windows Lime to make sure the Piano Window is completely on screen when Lime starts.
Fixed Windows Lime bug interpreting command line arguments with extraneous spaces.
Chord Drags are now automatically removed when they no longer make sense (and make for a very confusing display) after Insert/Delete Measures, Combine/Split Systems, Voice to Staff Above/Below, and Parts And Voices menu options.
The Voice to Staff Above/Below menu options are now disabled if there is only one voice on the staff; Lime requires that at least one voice remain on every staff at all times (an apparently blank staff can be made with Hide Rests).
|8.27||2/14/05||Lime will select note in same voice after Goto Bar menu option.|
|8.26||2/12/05||Fixed bogus error message on Windows machines with over 2GB memory.|
|8.24||12/21/04||Import NIFF improvements.
Fixed multi-rest numbers' font size for large-print music.
|8.23||11/11/04||Fixed bug that loses braces at start of piece.|
|8.22||9/03/04||Better handling of time signature and Voices and Parts specifications when deleting measures.|
|8.21||8/20/04||More improvements to MusicXML import and export.|
|8.20||8/8/04||New Import and Export submenus in the File menu.|
|8.19||5/14/04||Improvements to NIFF import and editing of scanned music: Lime can use graphical information for voice alignment, both on initial Import NIFF and when you correct note duration errors in the scanned music. In addition, you can correct clefs or keys in scanned music, by selecting the new Graphical Change checkbox in the Clef... and Key Signature... menu options. The Clear menu (under Edit) has a new option to let you to remove graphical information from your piece.|
|8.18||4/22/04||Fixed "Do Not Interpret" style for MIDI annotations.
Fixed "Copy Rectangle" XP bug that could clip right side of pasted music in Word.
Fixed a "Record" bug introduced in the 8.12 pre-release for Windows.
|8.17||4/1/04||Bug fixes for MusicXML export.
Import NIFF once again includes the "One Lime Voice per Staff" option.
Added "Do Not Interpret" style for annotations.
Fixed ignored radio buttons in Copy Measures.
|8.15||11/11/03||Fixed Export MusicXML's use of Part IDs and slur numbers.
Shortcut keys for PianoWindow differentiate between shifted and unshifted. Defaults for shifted numbers select various options in the PianoWindow.
Staccatissimo symbol added to PianoWindow staccato selection and to Marl font.
Nesting tuplets is now explicitly supported in the tuplet dialog. As before, use Tuplet Bracket to draw the brackets.
PianoWindow is resizeable (not available for Macs yet).
|8.13||06/12/03||System braces now look nicer when you use Sonata Font.|
|8.12||06/11/03||Speed-ups for older macs. Improvements to MIDI export.|
|8.11||06/07/03||Nachschlag notes (grace notes after the main note) can now be created by double-clicking on the Piano Window's grace note icon.
Grace Slur (in the Modify Slur submenu) lets you specify a slur that starts at a regular note and ends at a nachschlag note.
The Additional Slur submenu allows you to include a second slur symbol for a note, eg. when a trill is within a long slur and the trill also has a short slur to nachschlag notes.
|8.08||05/06/03||Bug fixes for Macs.|
|8.07||05/01/03||MIDI files are now written with 960 divisions per quarter.
Fixed bug in reading old pieces with resizing lines.
|8.06||04/30/03||Bug fixes: Mac problems in Parts and Voices menu option, Windows error messages when attempting to save to a read-only file, ties when multiple voices share notehead and stem, grace note beams between staves, and multirest number parameters.|
|8.05||04/23/03||Alpha release of Import MusicXML and Export MusicXML.
Improved Extend Line to Here menu option, and renamed Resize line style to Extend.
Added a Copyright Text Category and the associated Copyright Assistant. Added a Position Lock style, which locks the position of a text object independent of the position of its assoicated note or staff.
Lime now scrolls the window (if items are out of the window's area) when you use Alt-Left-Arrow (Mac Option-Left-Arrow) or Alt-Right-Arrow (Mac Option-Right-Arrow) to move between annotations on a voice. This corresponds to scrolling that occurs when you move between notes using Left-Arrow and Right-Arrow.
|8.00||01/31/03||New release version, with updated user manual.
Changes since the previous release version (7.25 Windows, 7.27 Mac) include: MacOSX and WindowsXP compatability, annotation controls are now under the Annotation menu, Text Categories are now available for annotations, Model for Text Category allows customization of Text Categories, Alt-Left/Right-Arrow (Mac Option-Left/Right-Arrow) moves through annotations, Enter/Return edits selected annotation, improved Staff Size Adjust annotation style, Even and Odd Margins in Layout, improved printing using TrueType fonts for Windows and MacOSX, improved shortcut keys. For more details, see the revisions listed for each pre-release version below.
|7.55||01/18/03||Improved Marl sharp character appearance at 12 point size.
OSX printing bug fixes.
|7.54||01/16/03||New Marl.ttf and Tufa.ttf files are included in this pre-release. These new TrueType fonts produce the same high-quality printed results as the Type1 fonts distributed with Lime. Windows and MacOSX users are encouraged to try these new fonts. Windows users should put the new fonts in the directory with Lime.exe and then Shut Down and restart to activate the new fonts. MacOSX users should use the new fonts in place of Marl and Tufa in their home/Library/Fonts/ folder. MacOS9 cannot use these new fonts; please continue using Marl.suit and Tufa.suit for the screen, and Type1 or Type3 for printing. (Note: The new fonts do not solve problems with transferring Word files containing certain Marl symbols between Mac and Windows; still working on that!)
On MaxOSX and MacOS9, bugs in the Command Keys feature are fixed. On MacOSX, bugs were fixed with printing; prints on PostScript printers now looks as good as with OS9. The MacOSX CPU usage is now lower when Lime is idle.
Fixed a bug with moving Lime pieces between Mac and Windows, so now the Layout values for even pages are preserved. Improved handling of hidden rests in multi-voice passages. Fixed text position and size adjustment bugs when the staff point size is changed.
The Model for Text Category menu option is now in the Text Category menu.
|7.53||11/27/02||Fixed MacOS9 menu problems.|
|7.52||11/02/02||Improved printing for MacOSX.|
|7.51||10/29/02||Improved CoreMIDI timing for MacOSX.|
|7.50||10/24/02||Fixed display bug in Record dialog for Windows; duration dots were not showing. Fixed plotting bug with page sizes over 16 inches on Mac.|
|7.49||10/15/02||Improved dot placement for chords with overlapping stem-up and stem-down subchords, where both subchords have duration dots.|
|7.47||09/19/02||First Lime for MacOSX.
Rearranged menu items to incorporate Font and Style as submenus in the Annotation menu.
Bug fixes, including XP plotting problem with Sonata whole rests, switching views, and "resizes" for hairpins. Due to remaining issues, resizes is no longer selected by default for hairpins.
|7.44||07/28/02||Windows Print Setup saves and restores printer paper size selection, not just scale and orientation.|
|7.41||06/22/02||Fixed bug in Systems... menu option.|
|7.40||06/04/02||Improved the Staff Size Adjust (previously called Cue Size Adjust) annotation control; if it is selected, the annotation will resize and relocate in other notation contexts with different staff sizes.
Reorganized the Annotation menu.
At the request of Windows laptop users, the warnings about missing MIDI services have been removed.
At the request of users, added even and odd page margins in the Layout menu option.
Fixed handling of single-character lyrics with WindowsXP.
|7.39||05/23/02||Fixed text annotation problems with WindowsXP and foreign language scripts. Also other minor bug fixes.|
|7.36||05/05/02||You can specify the default style, font, and position to be used when you create annotations. Each classification of annotation has its own defaults; just select an existing annotation and choose Defaults For Annotation (under Text Controls in the Style menu). This capability was suggested in the User's Group.
Fixed bugs reported by users.
|7.35||05/02/02||Lime is now compatible with more USB/MIDI converters on Macs.|
|7.34||04/20/02||Annotation controls are now in the Style menu (and no longer in the Piano Window).
The Annotation menu (new in this version) allows you to classify the annotation you want to create. It sets the annotation's Style menu selections and the annotation's position automatically; you can modify them if you like.
If you hold down the Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac) key while you press the right or left arrow, it selects the next or previous annotation on a voice. You can use this when you are in Note Entry mode, or when you have an annotation selected, or when you are typing an annotation.
Escape takes you out of annotation mode and back to music mode. If you have a text annotation selected, Return or Enter lets you edit it.
Flat Underlines (in the Style menu's Text Controls submenu) prevents underlines from being superscripted along with superscripted text (\u); this is an issue with chord symbols. Stack Vertically makes vertical text used for piano fingerings.
The Voice On Channel menu option now has "No MIDI Output for Voice". (This was previously missing in Windows Lime.)
|7.33||03/24/02||Improvements in handling chords with multiple stems up or multiple stems down.|
|7.31||03/09/02||Bug fixes in Import NIFF. Part Extraction... now lets you move notation contexts.|
|7.30||02/25/02||Bug fixes in script (charset) selection for Lime files moved from Mac to Windows. New parameter for swing eighth durations.|
|7.28||01/15/02||Changed Windows Lime so that it runs when there are font problems with the printer driver.|
|7.27||01/05/02||Fixed scaling bug with system separators on cue staves. Fixed a display problem with importing old pieces in Macintosh Lime.|
|7.26||12/29/01||Removed automatic scrolling when switching between several music windows.
Fixed NIFF import and export of single tuplets, and tuplets that have grace notes. Also added NIFF support of notehead shapes.
|7.25||12/09/01||New menu options since 7.03: Piano Window Keys..., Extend Line To Here, Clear Invisible Notes, and Print Multiple.
Improved menu options since 7.03: Insert Measures, font handling in Parameters, Bracket submenu, and non-latin alphabets in NIFF Import and NIFF Export.
Other improvements since 7.03: Improved handling of double note heads, the "note xx" control annotation (where xx is the MIDI note number) as a new way to assign pitches on percussion parts, and better handling of three or more rhythmically independent voices printing on one staff.
|7.03||03/07/01||Fixed a bug with pasting music past the end of a piece.|
|7.02||03/03/01||Fixed a bug with New Notation Context in the Part Extraction... menu option.|
|7.01||02/27/01||All the Notation Contexts for the piece are now listed in the Context... menu.|
|7.00||02/23/01||The Lime Viewer is now available for people who would like to view but not edit Lime pieces.|
|6.32||01/31/01||Added a chant bar line to the choices in the Bar Line... menu option.|
|6.25||01/05/01||Users have asked for a simple way to increase the thickness of Lime's thinnest lines, so that music printed by Lime is more readable when it is photocopied. Now you can specify a minimum default line width in the Layout... menu option. All of Lime's line widths will be at least this value. You can make exceptions to this minimum by specifying smaller values in the Parameters... menu option.
A new menu option, Go To Bar..., is now available as an alternative to Go To Page...
When you switch notation contexts, Lime will open to the page containing the same measure in the new notation context.
The Hear... menu option has bugs fixed with repeats and with stuck notes in QuickTime.
|6.24||01/03/01||Added a Note Entry menu item; this is equivalent to double-clicking on the selected note.
Improved the highlighting in the Piano Window when the selected items have multiple settings.
|6.23||01/02/01||You no longer need to hold down the Shift key to select a group of notes. Just drag the mouse around the notes you want to select. Hold down the Shift key only if you want to extend an existing selection.
You no longer need to hold down the Shift key to select a group of annotations. Just Alt-drag (Option-drag on Macs) the mouse around the annotations you want to select. Hold down the Shift key only if you want to extend an existing selection. If you want to drag an annotation, you need to Alt-drag near an endpoint of the annotation.
You must hold down the Control key (Command on Macs) for Staff Drag, Chord Drag, and Accidental Drag. This change was made because users said that it was too easy to accidently drag these items.
|6.22||12/20/00||Lime now requires you to double-click a note or rest in your piece before you can enter notes from the keyboard. A flashing box will indicate that Lime is ready for music keyboard input.
If you single-click a note or rest in your piece, it will flash (as in previous versions of Lime). The Piano Window now works the same with the flashing note as it does with a group of selected notes. It indicates the settings of the flashing note, and allows you to change the note's settings.
The Expanded Shift-click menu option has been renamed to Enable Duration Edits. The Expanded Alt-click (for Macs, Expanded Option-click) menu option has been renamed to Allow Any Alt-click (for Macs, Allow Any Option-click).
Two new Voice menu options, Voice to Staff Above and Voice to Staff Below, can be used to switch voices between the upper and lower staff of a grand staff. The new menu options may be more convenient than using the Parts and Voices... menu option to achieve the same effect. (When you switch voices between staves, you often need three voices: one that stays on the upper staff, one that stays on the lower staff, and one that switches; use Start Voice in Parts and Voices... to add voices.)
The Time Signature menu option has a new checkbox "Do not print whole measure rests in this time signature." This is useful in some time signatures (like 1/8 time) to avoid whole rests that might be confusing.
The Bar Line menu option's "Connect Bar Line To Next Staff In System" can be set differently in each notation context.
|6.19||11/02/00||Windows Lime now supports scripts for foreign language text. Use the Language tab in the Keyboard control panel to enable scripts; click the script indicator on the Task Bar to switch between scripts. We suggest you turn off the special key combinations in the control panel, so that Alt-Shift-Click in Lime does not alter your current script.
Lime's Import NIFF now automatically scales font sizes in the same way that it scales the rest of the page layout. The automatic scaling can be disabled in Import NIFF.
|6.15||07/17/00||Improved the Systems... menu option so that it works on pieces with varying numbers of staves in systems. It will force a system break whenever the number of staves changes.
Improved the Part Extraction... menu option so that it can create new notation contexts from scores with varying number of staves in systems. Despite this new capability, we suggest you make the Score notation context a full score (all parts printing at all times). If you need a reduced score (staves suppressed if they have only rests), we suggest you make a separate Reduced Score notation context.
Improved the Part Extraction... menu option to better handle multi-staff parts. This will help in creating reduced scores (and individual parts with cue staves) for full scores containing parts with varying numbers of staves (like piano or harp parts with two staves in some systems and three in others) and voices that move between the part's staves.
Added new functionality to the Part Extraction... menu option. For a new notation context, it determines the order of staves in each system based on what order you choose the parts. It checks to make sure you have at least one voice of one part printing in all measures.
|6.13||07/09/00||An alternate LIME.INI path may be specified as a command line argument for Windows Lime.|
|6.11||06/25/00||Lime's Import NIFF now handles beams over rests.
Import NIFF now bases page size on staff placement and staff size information. This seems to result in page sizes that are practical for editing in Lime, more so than the page size specified in NIFF page headers.
Lime's Export NIFF now includes AbsPlacement, Width, and Height tags for Page, System, Staff, and TimeSlice chunks.
|6.08||06/07/00||Lime's Export and Import NIFF has improvements based on comments by the author of SharpEye Music Reader (http://www.visiv.co.uk). Lime's Export NIFF now places tsMeasureStart timeslices at the start of a staff. Lime's Import NIFF now handles tsMeasureStart timeslices at the start of a staff, at the end of a staff, both at the start and end, or neither place.|
|6.04||04/01/00||The Part Extraction... menu option is now under a new menu called Context. Two new menu options, Previous Notation Context and Next Notation Context, are quick ways to change Notation Contexts when working with a score and individual parts.
To set a different dynamic level for the 2nd time through a repeated section of music, type two dynamic levels separated by a dash (or a space or one or more words). For example, in text annotation mode type \ff-\pp for ff the first time through and pp the second time through.
|6.03||03/17/00||A simpler copy-and-paste is now available from Windows Lime to Microsoft Word 97 and Word 2000. PC users previously had to select a rectangle (Ctrl-Alt-Shift-drag), then Print Selection to an EPS file, then use Insert Picture in Word. Now, instead of using an EPS file, you can copy the rectangle in Lime and then Paste Special Enhanced Metafile in Word.|
|6.01||02/12/00||If you make touch-up changes to Lime graphics using Allow Any Alt-Click (or Allow Any Option-Click), those changes will now be better retained over any subsequent page layout changes.|
|6.00||01/20/00||New "release version" of Lime. Improved web page lists version number and file sizes before download. Updated Mac and Windows Lime manual in pdf format. The Abaca.dll file is no longer needed for Lime.|
|5.42||01/09/00||Parameters for certain tablature indications are now in Geneva font for readability.|
|5.31||07/09/99||If you hold down the Shift key when you select Recompute Playback, it will change the menu option to Recompute All and it will recompute the whole piece.|
|5.26||06/28/99||Improvements to guitar bends and ties in guitar tablature.|
|5.21||05/05/99||Copy Measures menu option now has "All Staves" choice.
The Options menu option now has a No Note Changes checkbox. This lets you edit the layout of a piece without allowing changes to the notes.
Guitar tablature notes at ends of bends are no longer suppressed if parentheses are selected around the notehead.
|5.20||04/02/99||Import NIFF now supports repeat dots, endings, and breath marks.|
|5.15||11/18/98||The Copy Measures menu option now works better with note-density neighborhoods; copying sections with chord drags now works in more cases.|
|5.11||09/27/98||Fixed an obscure spacing error due to floating point error accumulation in computing spring forces.|
|5.10||08/12/98||The Systems menu option now allows you to type all the measure numbers at which you want system and page breaks. The values are automatically preset for you.|
