Removal of External Links[edit]

Per WP:EL, only certain types of links are allowed in articles. First, direct links (that is, links embedded in the text itself to outside websites) are almost never allowed. Second, we only link to a very small, limited set of outside links, examples of which can be found in the subsection WP:ELYES. The links to the Proprietary software programs are definitely not allowed, under numbers 1, 4, 5, and possibly other criteria of WP:ELNO. Thus, I am going to remove the links now.

As far as keeping them listed as red-links...I would argue it's not necessary. WP:RED says we should only have redlinks for articles that are likely to be created. I'm fairly certain that those software programs do not meet the general notability guidelines, meaning that the articles can never be created. On this part, though, I'd like to hear what others think. Qwyrxian (talk) 21:54, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

I just noticed the other links in "See Also"; the Gamera and Aruspix fail for the same reason as in the first paragraph above; Scorewriter is not directly related to this topic, so it doesn't go into a See Also; and I changed the title of the section to External Links.

PDFtoMusic Pro does no OCR[edit]

PDFtoMusic PRO scans PDF for instructions as "draw 5 horizontal lines" and does no OCR.

"Therefore, scanned sheet music cannot be managed by PDFtoMusic Pro."[1]

It should be removed from the list

unfilled voices[edit]

A recent edit objected to the term "unfilled voices". I added the term back and I am bringing the issue to the talk page for discussion. "unfilled voices" are quite common and certainly not included in the phrase "non-standard symbols". My understanding of "unfilled voices" is any multi-voice measure with "hidden rests" (to use a term from music software notation). --dbolton (talk) 01:26, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
