I'm using (learning) ABCexplorer 1.6.1 on a laptop PC and when printing out to PDF either ABCexplorer, Acrobat, or something else "often" automatically adds an extra line of notation diddly at the end that has nothing to do with the particular tune. I've searched the helps in ABCexpl and Acrobat attempting to find what I have "selected", turned on, or defaults to, but, can't remedy the notation. Anyone have a quick answer to turn off the extra diddly?

TIA and always appreciated. :)

I can't picture what the diddly might be. Can you post a PDF to Box.net or somewhere?

I found the tunes Erin's Shore on both The Session and within the ABCexplorer sites.

And I'm not sure which version (key) is the correct one.

How do I make them public?

More stuff to learn... geez, I'm growing bald and what's left is turning very grey. :)

How about this ?:

This works! Well, I think this looks very much like some usual words (some notes maybe?) which are erroneously being interpreted as ABCs. Are you sure your input ends with ...D3-D2|| ?

I think that I copy the file X:1 down thru who submitted the tune on The Session. Could including the individual's name (words) be the issue? I'll stop doing that.

You mean that "# Added by humblebum 6 years ago." stuff? Yes, definitively!

Yes, that's what caused it. I just tried it and cleaned up the tune. I did that wrongfully to a lot of tunes. What's really embarrassing in my musical ignorance... I tried to learn those last lines on all those tunes. The notations were so outrageously exotic that I would give up on the last lines. :oops:

Thanks gents!

That title isn't looking so good either. Unless that's the curse word you say when you try to play it. :P

Yes, yes! ABC will attempt to [mis]interpret anything in the tune body, including that extra garbage.:o

The ABC for that last line would be something like: Added by ubeb uyea ag. Or, reinterpreting: Added by [H]u[m]b[l]ebu[m] yea[rs] ag[o].

The extra diddle is a jaunty little passage, but I don't think you can dance to it. Bach's rendering of his own name (Bb-A-C-B) in The Art of Fugue was more successful. And he was using a much older version of ABC Explorer.

He he, reminds me of a silly online app I wrote a few years ago that takes any piece of text and attempts to interpret it as abc notation - TIAO, Text In Abc Out.

Crikey, (c) 1999? Make 'a few years ago' 'MANY years ago'!

It's VBScript only so only Internet Explorer needs apply ...

I'm sure I ought to rewrite it in javascript or php or something to make it cross-browser, but I strongly suspect that ain't going to happen!

Very interesting, Steve. The mapping from the text to the resulting ABC is definitely non-obvious.

Yes, that IE restriction sucks. I have to admit that I've never even heard of VBScript... :boggle:

However, I was curious enough to port it to Javascript. And as Steve explicitly permitted this, here it is:

Seems to be the perfect procrastination-tool!

@Steve, if you want to include the js-code in your own page... well, you know where to find it. :)
