Save lyrics with midi export as 2 options: "KAR file (MIDI File with lyrics)" and "KAR file with chords"

This is a request that goes back to at least 2015 and I have formally requested this feature again (see https://musescore.org/en/node/290163) - to create KAR files, and kar files with chords. This would allow us to use a real Karaoke Player, such as the free van Basco player (http://www.vanbasco.com/karaokeplayer/) app for practice, performance, learning, teaching, etc. It's high time for this feature after 10 years. Let's see what other potential users say!

Do you realize the numbers of  school teachers, and church choir leaders would would find this useful for teaching, conducting parishioners, choruses etc.? And why not lyrics from several voices simultaneously?

Do you realize how useful these files could be with karaoke software?! I am a programmer and I see the arguments as "beside-the-point" and not at all insurmountable. Read my request where I address the programmer's objections. With all the lyric-typing I do I am disappointed/insulted that I can't export the lyrics with the midi. I have searched high and low and the closest software I can find to a solution is Serenade (http://www.1manband.nl/serenade/index.htm) which is far from as perfect for this as MS would be. Please help promote the idea!

Should I end the canon in the same key I started it in?

So, I am doing another canon and I took your suggestion of having just 1 measure between the voices. Now in the case of this canon, the term voice isn't literal here. I am writing this for a harpsichord with just 2 melodic lines. I was thinking of perhaps adding a bass line(Cello perhaps) for a richer sound but maybe after I finish the melodic part of the canon because this one is modulating. So far I have had this in terms of modulations:

C major(starting key) -> E minor via direct modulation(like literally the E minor seems to come out of nowhere. But because of the relation to C major, it isn't as abrupt as say going to Bb would be) -> A minor


Now I have had to make 1 little tweak to my initial melodic idea because I used the Check Harmony Rules Plugin and I had 2 parallel 5ths. But just a single tweak got rid of both parallels. This did make me go from stepwise motion at that point to a leap but the leap was small, only a third.

This canon is at the third. So where C is in the initial voice, there is E in the following voice, etc. And the fact that it is at the third is why it is modulating. But I was wondering, because this canon is going to continue to modulate, do I have to end it in C major(which might mean extending the canon past 50 bars so that it doesn't feel abrupt) or can I end it in a key other than the starting key as long as I have a cadence at the end of it?

I mean I would think that I would have to get back to C major which could mean extending the canon further but at the same time, Lord only knows how long it will sound as though it is in C major before it modulates again. And I know ending on a cadence is crucial so that is why I am wondering if ending in a key other than the starting key is okay as long as I have a cadence in that ending key.

Score not rendering correctly

Some weeks ago I wrote about score rendering during playing in the app. Today’s update improved the render but not 100% on my iPhone X. Previously the whole ledger line was missed out when changing pages until the red measure line caught up. Now half the ledger line is missing when page changes. Can’t seem to add a Screen shot here?

Spacenoplay again

Getting more than a little tired of this. It happens regularly and repeatably on every score, when it starts happening,  I can't believe you've never encountered it.  Click on any measure, and hit space, and instead of starting (or, once started by button, stopping) playing, it just scrolls the score to the next viewport/page.  Firefox 67 now (Mac Mojave), but it's been happening for months with every version of Firefox.   Have you really failed to reproduce this? It may or may not have to do with switching windows to other apps, or posting comments, I don't know, but this happens every hour of every day. PLEASE fix this.

The little jewels within Mozart's music treasure chest

Many pieces from Mozart are amongst the most beautiful things that can be eared, for these who are receptive to at least.
But there are also pieces from him which won't procure that undescriptible feeling ( mix of ecstasy/peace and achievement. Plus the need of earing more of it ;) ) 

I am not particularly fond of the second movement of Symphony nb.25 for example. It's fine, but in my opinion it lacks something, or I don't get that thing, for any reason. 
I just feel this Andante won't really start and tell the story, or if it does, it seems it couls have been much more than that.
But, and this is the subject of this topic, there is this small passage within, which is beyond everything else in those 70 bars.
I mean, that's precisely the moment I am waiting for when listening to this movement.  I wished so hard Mozart would have  develop further this absurdely simple but at the same time heavenly beautiful theme!
Here it is:

Would be fun to point out further "magic" passages in other Mozart's compositions. There are so many!
The problem is cutting them to put  here in the topic ( needs some audio editing or score writing,  this last one being an excellent exercise )

Review of a little ticklish song afeter reading about harmony

 
I've been studing (by myself) harmony and composition by Arnold Schoenberg and revised an old song I made:https://musescore.com/user/2458231/scores/5543724
Any mistakes?
How can I make it more pleasing to hear?
Any better books on composition?
Waht do you think of the litte song? (the intent is to imitate the act of tickling, there is even a feather kkkk)
