Tux Guitar Octave Lines


I've been all over the Tux Guitar Forums (out of date) and Community and can't find an answer to this.

Is there a way to make Tux Guitar display (and print) 8va and 8vb octave lines? I found the tool that will transpose notes by however many semi-tones I specify but not the octave lines. Thanks.

Great software from that creator. Doubt there is support but may be if you imported a score with it in there maybe you can cut and paste is all I have for a solution.

Might even try these ideas to see if they would work in tux. https://musescore.org/en/handbook/octave-lines

Could try a different program maybe. https://musescore.org/en/download

@jefro: Thanks. I'm already using musescore, even though it is much more than I need for comparatively simple guitar tablature. Too bad that Tuxguitar isn't more actively in development because the more widely used proprietary Guitar Pro 6 has sadly neglected its Linux offering which won't even run on 64bit hardware.

My instructor uses GP6 and before I migrated from Win10, we used to be able to exchange live active scores in which he and I could add changes and comments. Now with musescore or Tuxguitar we have to send static pdf's to each other because of file formatting issues.

BTW I haven't figured out how to make musescore do a very handy thing that GP6 does: automatically move notes on the staff when an octave line is inserted. Any clues?

I haven't had time to play music as much as I'd like so I just never get time. I get about 15-20 some days and I just transcribe by ear anymore. Once in a while go to tab sites or almost never anymore get a book or download a score. I have used GP and Tuxguitar before. Sibelius player may still be on my windows system.

Typical problems as always as time marches on.

My last teacher would just print it out by hand on paper.

I know there are others here that play music and may have some ideas.
