Current links to opus window selections can be viewed from the Opus Links Page
The Opus Window displays a score that is synchronized with a recording. As a piece plays, the score pages will turn at the appropriate points in the music. You may jump to particular measures, control the automatic page turning, repeat sections of interest, and adjust the appearance of the score. A selection for which the Opus Window is available will be marked by a "Listen + View" button in the experimental search results screen. Click the button to open the Opus Window.
Initially, you will see this screen, in which you may select the particular tracks which you would like to open in the Opus Window:

Skip to a specific measure by selecting a measure from the "Go to measure" dropdown menu.
Opening the Annotation Tools
The annotation tools may be activated in the opus window. On the sidebar [left-hand side], there is an annotation box with two toggle buttons, Hide/Show Tools and Hide/Show Annotations. By clicking on the Show Tools button, the annotation tools will appear surrounding the score. The button will change to Hide Tools, and clicking it again will hide them. This is the same for the Show/Hide annotation button. However, hiding the annotations will also hide the tools. Hiding the annotations will not delete or clear them. More information on the annotation tools is on the Annotation page
You may turn score pages by:
- moving the slider bar left or right
- entering a page number in the "Go to page" area.
- clicking the back and forward arrows to the right of the "Go to page" area
You may also set the score to automatically turn pages as the selection plays by checking or unchecking the "auto page turning" box.
You may set several repeat options for the score pages, as shown below. Choose "current section" to repeat your current section of measures; Choose beginning and ending measure numbers to repeat; or choose none to play straight through.
The Opus Window uses the same playback controls as those found in the Audio Player, Score Viewer and Timeline tool. Use the volume slider to adjust volume.
Various score view options are available under the "Fit to Window" dropdown menu. Zoom in and out to percentages or fit the window to the score's width or height.
