Notion iOS 2.5 Release Notes

06/02/2020

Notion iOS 2.5 Major Maintenance Release

Notion iOS 2.5 is here, a major maintenance update for the best-selling notation app on iOS. This is a free update for Notion iOS owners that can be obtained by visiting Notion in the App Store on your device, or checking your available updates.

And while you're here, please check out our new official Facebook user group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PreSonusNotionUsers

NEW: Document Handling

(iOS11 and later) Notion now directly supports Apple's built-in document opener. This allows you to create, open and save scores directly in the location of your choice, whether on the device, in Notion's iCloud folder, or via the linked cloud folders of your choice (such as Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive for example)

Note If you are running iOS9 or 10, then there is a document opener built in to Notion that will allow saving to the device, or to Notion's iCloud folder only.

Notion iOS 2.5 New Browser (shown in Dark Mode)

NEW: Export as MP3

Now you can export your score as an MP3 audio file, alongside the existing options of WAV and AAC formats. Just choose MP3 as the Export file format, and it will save an MP3 in the same location as your Notion document.

Listen to your scores on the go, with these lovely Eris HD10BT Bluetooth headphones (coincidentally, also made by PreSonus .)

NEW: Export for SMP Press

Export as SMP Press File is a simple process that creates a single PDF containing the full score and all the parts in score order. SMP Press, from Sheet Music Plus, is a self-publishing portal for composers. Its free to join, and you earn a commission for every sale.

For more info, click here: https://smppress.sheetmusicplus.com/

NEW: Save as Template

Now you can save a document you are working on as a new template. Go to Export, make sure Notion File is selected, then Save as Template. This will ask you to give it a name-your new template will be available from the New Score dialog next time you create a new document.

Choose your instruments or a template. Or create your own!

All Fixes and Enhancements Change in Minimum Requirements

Notion v2.5 requires Apple iOS9 or higher (was iOS8).

Please note, Notion 2.5.x will be the final version to support iOS9.

iOS Device Improvements

Add Close' button to Score Setup for larger phones, in order to dismiss the Score Setup menu

Tools in the sidebar not covered by the notch' in larger iPhones

Larger phones now load the correct chord symbol dialog (rather than trying to load the iPad version of this dialog which then couldn't be dismissed)

When in split view on an iPad, the onscreen fretboard, keyboard and mixer now show in the correct size

Optimised for Dark Mode

Handwriting

Fix for handwriting engine occasionally stopping during a long session

Fix for subsequent measures sometimes changing after handwriting recognition on an earlier measure

Rests on ledger lines no longer cause an issue

Elements that cross systems (e.g. ties) now supported when using the handwriting area or continuous score view

Adjacent offset notes on ledger lines now don't transpose on subsequent notes being entered

Fix for handwriting recognition problem on systems that have a repeat line

Audio

Fix for some newer devices, where Notion was not using the device sample rate leading to distortion when playing back or exporting an audio file.

Playback warning pop-up for large scores removed

Hi-hat foot splash sample now plays back

MusicXML

New MusicXML elements imported: sf, sfp, fp, sfz and fz; beaming; measured tremolos that include tuplets; very short duration notes (down to 1024th notes); fermatas; harmonic circle symbol / open circle symbol; snap (Bartok) pizzicato; scoop, doit and fall-off

New MusicXML elements exported: clef changes; pizz and arco; pre-bends; sf, sfp, fp, sfz and fz; mutes; measured tremolos; noteheads; fermatas; harmonic circle symbol / open circle symbol; snap (Bartok) pizzicato; scoop, doit and fall-off

Tablature export and import fully reworked

Support for .musicxml' file extension

Better handling of any missing slur end elements on import, to avoid very long slurs occurring

Voices on grand staff reworked

When importing with time signatures that have a high numeral (e.g. 11/4), whole measure rests now show as expected

Better handling of imported beaming information

Now imports grace notes with beaming information

Fixed occasional duplication of symbols, when exporting legato-accent, and mezzo-staccato

Fix for TAB pitches being wrongly transposed by an octave on export, for non-transposing fretted instruments (e.g. banjo,

mandolin, ukulele)

MIDI

Improved rhythmic spelling on MIDI import

Fix for MIDI files not being imported from other apps in some circumstances

General notation and note entry

5th string banjo fret numbers now start at the 5th fret as expected

Lyrics and chord symbols now paste without replacing the notation, after copying a selection that is longer than one measure

When writing chords with the on-screen piano keyboard, notes are no longer held down' after moving to the next position

Fix for crash caused by deleting notes in measures with rhythm slashes in another voice

When writing chords with the onscreen guitar fretboard, notes are held on the fretboard after moving to the next position to allow repeated chord strumming (keep moving to the next position with the right arrow to enter multiple chords). The chord is automatically cleared from the fretboard if a new note is tapped on the fretboard

Slash Notation

Bass note of Chord Symbol now supported in playback

Slashes with augmentation dots now have more spacing in Jazz Font

Notes can be deleted in measures with rhythm slashes in another voice, without crashing

Tremolo

Tremolo Entry behaviour changed: e.g. for a fingered tremolo with quarter dur
