changing default settings

• Mar 6, 2020 - 01:45

Is there any way to change default text settings? For example, I would like all the texts (e.g. staff, system, title, composer) to be Arial by default, and I don't know how to.


If you have an existing score that's already formatted the way you like, you can save it as a template. Then whenever you create a new score you can select your template under Custom Templates and your new score will be created according to your specifications.

Another approach is to create a MuseScore Style File (.mss) that contains the exact style customizations that you need. Once you have that file you can open any score and go to Format | Load Style… to apply it to the current score.

I've attached an example style file that sets all of the fonts to Arial (and does nothing more). You can use this file as-is, or you can open it in a text editor such as Notepad and search-and-replace all of the instances of “Arial” to whatever font you like.
