OOoLilyPond (OLy) has changed a lot with the new version. It is now easier to use and it has many new features:
- The line width and the staff size can be set in the OLy dialog.
- OLy has a built in template editor.
- The templates include example code and documentation (comments).
- The LilyPond output is parsed and Oly jumps to the location of the error or warning while displaying the corresponding message.
With OOoLilyPond (OLy) you can use musical notation within OpenOffice.org. Use it for writing a book on music theory or for writing down exercises for music instruments or voices which need to be commented with text. OLy is not limited to classic music notation, you can also create guitar fret diagrams with it.
You enter the music notes as text code using the LilyPond language and OLy converts it into an image within OpenOffice.org. You will need some time to get familiar with the LilyPond language but once learned, you can typeset small pieces of music much faster than with any other sofware.
