Predefined contexts

For Gregorian chant and mensural notation, there are predefined voice, staff, and score contexts available, which set all the various notation signs to values suitable for these styles. If one is satisfied with these defaults, one can proceed directly with note entry without worrying about the details on how to customize a context. See one of the predefined contexts VaticanaScore, VaticanaVoice, VaticanaStaff, MensuralVoice, MensuralStaff, KievanVoice, and KievanStaff.
