playback tempo

what is the default tempo on playback?


To play devil's advocate:
"Whatever tempo the one playing your score wishes to use."

For MuseScore this currently defaults to 120QPM. But you shouldn't count on that ever. If you want a certain tempo, put in a tempo marker. Then everyone reading that score (including MuseScore) will know how to treat it.

Yes, but as I said, this will likely break as soon as your score layout changes. Much better to do things correctly, you will have fewer problems down the road. Plus you won't have to keep doing this every time you want to add text. A minute spend fixing this now and learning to do it properly will likely save you hours upon hours of frustration later.
