Certain Formatting Changes/Resets Do Not Save in Parts
I've come across multiple similar issues in 3.6 formatting defaults/saves (some already posted in the issue tracker; sorry for the redundancy) but I'd like to collect them here.
For similar issues, see:
#315815: Header and Footer Text is not identical to 3.5 scores when opened in 3.6
#315781: Measure Number Offset Value Changes Everytime Opening the File
Summary of problems: parts do not save changes (some don't save if they are set to style/default) in position/offset for hairpin, staff text, measure numbers; font size for header and footer; disabling of indentation on first systems; and deletion of top-right page numbers. I have a good feeling some of these can appear in main scores without parts, but I haven't found how to recreate that yet...
OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 184.108.40.2067915773, revision: 1977cb3
How to recreate the problems.
1) Open the score and observe that the main score has these desired settings:
- Header in 10 pt. font (3.6 default is 11 pt.)
- Footer in 8 pt. font (3.6 default is 9 pt.)
- Page number on the center-bottom of all pages except the first (which doesn't have one)
- Hairpins at Y: 3.50 sp.
- Staff text at Y: -2.00 sp.
- Measure numbers with center alignment
2) Open any part and observe that it has these undesired settings: (note that Part 1 has staff text in a different position than the other parts due to autoplacement)
- Enabled indentation on first system
- Header in 11 pt. font
- Footer in 9 pt. font
- Page number also on the top-right of all pages except the first
- Hairpins at Y: 2.50 sp.
- Staff text at Y: -1.00 sp.
- Measure numbers with left alignment
3) In a part, make these edits (you can only do one/a few of these changes and can apply to all similar elements, if applicable; you must set as style, when applicable) and then save:
- Disable indentation of first system
- Header to 10 pt. font
- Footer to 8 pt. font
- Delete top-right page numbers
- Set hairpins back to Y: 3.50 sp. (set as style)
- Set staff text back to Y: -2.00 sp. (set as style)
- Set measure numbers back to center alignment (set as style)
4) Close and re-open file and observe that the score and parts regressed to what I noted in 1) and 2). You do not need to apply changes to all parts and you can only pick one of the steps; the re-opened score regresses to the original setting.
I made this sample score as a copy of one that originated last fall. I'm using the new fonts but my Styles palette has some custom settings (Ex. minimum measure width at 25.00 sp.). I figure plenty of you know this way better than me; I'm just here to report what I've found. Hope this helps!
