New: A context menu in our player

You can now right-click any music in Soundslice to get some useful options:

The idea is to make some of our player’s functionality more discoverable and easy to access. The current options are:

Please note that the Appearance and Instruments options won’t necessarily always be visible. For example, if the music only contains a single instrument, we automatically simplify our Settings panel to hide the Instruments section.

On touchscreen devices, which obviously don’t have a way to right click, you can open this context menu by doing a long press. Just hold your finger down on the music for about a second.

This context menu is currently only available when viewing a slice — not when editing it. We can envision a bunch of useful context-menu features for editing, so that’s on the to-do list.

If you have any ideas for how we can expand this menu (either in view or edit mode), let us know!


Paged and Horizontal layouts do not shw any instrument names on the score. In scrollable layout instrument names are only available when stave width is set to 'fit to screen'. This is probably a non issue for piano players but for a multi part choral work this is a real problem. Could the context screen contain a toggle for switching instrument names on the score on or off?
That's something we'd like to improve. Can definitely see why it's useful to show the instrument name on more types of layouts.
Nice :)
