We’ve been working for a long time to make FORTE even more easy to use. Today, we’re happy to announce the release of FORTE 9.2. It contains a host of bug fixes as well as a lot of new useful features to help you handle your scores more intuitively. So here you go: Happy scoring with your new FORTE features!

1. New Playback Functions and Selection of Elements
The playback options have been improved. No more fiddling around with the “Go To” button – simply click the measure you want the audio to start from and go ahead!
Afterwards, when clicking “Rewind”, the playback will reset to the last position you started from. Only after clicking twice, it will rewind all the way back to the start. Smart, eh?
But there’s more: The new select option allows you to select all elements of kind at once. For example, select a dynamic marking. Then do a right-click and choose “Select all of the same type”. Now you can re-position all dynamic markings at once.
2. Select and delete measures
Deleting specific measures used to be a bit of a hassle in FORTE. Not any more! FORTE 9.2 comes with a handy select-and-delete function.
First, select the measures you want to delete (using the Select mode.) Second, go to the Score menu and click “Remove Measures”. Now the usual window will open and you’ll see that the respective measures are automatically inserted. Click OK, and that’s it!
How do you like these new options? Are they making life easier for you?
