Hey Bart, don't hurry!
We're still in August and so I'm still on holidays!  :))

You did a very good work indeed!
SplitStaff.lua - with corrected chord handling
What to say? Wow!
Thank you very much, Bart.

May I add a little detail? (See attachement)

As above.
Script is deleted. New version can be found in Reply #21.
The optimized (and corrected) version of SplitStaff.lua is now available.
It now also works for very crowded staves without the 'Long Task Handling' option.

The built-in Module nwcPlayContext gave me hot water instead of the warm water that I was trying to invent.


Wrong chord handling detected in this version. Script is deleted.

Thank you, Rick.

You might try checking: 'Long Task Handling' on your user tool setup.

Good suggestion!  8)

After accepting "several" times ( >:( ) the warning about a long running script, STAIRWAY_TO_HEAVEN transforms into the attached file.
I never used this option before (and didn't notice that it exists).

Nevertheless, a user tool shouldn't work so long to achieve a decent result, so I will continue to elaborate my redesigned script.

Thank you, Opagust.

I just checked it, but that is empty, too.
Even STDIN is empty :(

My script had a lot of inefficient code  :-[  and I am now working on another version with a different design.
I will post it soon.


The tool seems to run flawlessly on staves with not too many items. But from a certain number of items (for instance on the whole percussion staff of "stairway to heaven"), the tool doesn't give the desired output anymore on my computer but just shows a window with nothing more then "ERROR".  (see SplitStaff_error.jpg)

If a window with 'ERROR' is shown, click the radiobutton 'STDERR' to see the error(s).

Let me withdraw the wish.  I didn't pick up that just holding the right arrow while in the active (short) staff would scroll everything, as described by Opagust, but it does tonight. 

Good enough for me.  I don't need anything more. 

Thanks to all who participated.
