Don hello,
Thank you for the improvements and fixed you are doing for this release! :-)
I did some test. You can check your p.m. for more detailed report, including videos and projects.
For the Harp Pedal improvement would be nice if it's possible the values 0 to be for Naturals, 127 for Flats and -127 for Sharps, or if there's another possibility the CC values are somehow linked to the graphic pedal and when we change the pedal position in the graphic this automatically to change the controller values /this would be the best way, in my opinion/.
Greetings and success! :-)

The harp pedal controller values can not be hard coded.
It will be what ever the library uses.
Eventually I'll add this to the sound maps so the popup will show pedal up, down, and natural.

Don hello,
Thank you for the improved grace note spacing! Engraver - Notes - Grace Notes working properly, too. Now the things are much better.
It's great that you are now more focused on improving the Engraving side of Overture. :-) We need it.
Greetings and success

Thanks for the minor 6/9 but now, in the settings we can't choose between m/mi/min/-.
It's always m...

This has been fixed and the installer has been uploaded.
I did not change the release number for such a slight change.
This was actually a bug in the original Overture 5 code, and just showed up due to a slight change in the chord panel..

Hey Don,

There's a strange bug in the new release. During playback of a score, it will be playing along just fine and then, what seems to be random, the view will switch back to the title page, however the score keeps on playing in the correct spot. Its frustrating because when I am trying to hone in and listen to a certain bar all of a sudden I am looking at the title page. I am on a Mac on High sierra

Okay so it only seems to do it if the Overture window is reduced in anyway, it doesn't do it if the window is full size

The same thing for me on Mac OS High Sierra during the playback : the view suddenly goes back to the first page when it reaches a particular measure. This behaviour appears or not according to the scale of view.

Please attach a file, tell me what measure, etc.

I may have found it, so I'll post a new release tomorrow.
