Unroll repeats

What happened to Unroll repeats command (Tools)?



I've been using the "Unroll repeats" tool successfully some time ago. Now I can't find it. Anyone knows what happened? I'm currently using version "OS: macOS 10.16, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 3224f34". Was this function discontinued in some version? Is there another way to "unroll" the repeats? Thanks!

It hasn't gone anywhere. My best guess is you are in a custom workspace that was created before the feature was added, and the workspace was set to customize the menu. I believe the MDL extension does this, for example, but so might any custom workspaces you created yourself. Anyhow, change back to a standard workspace using the control at far right of the toolbar (well, that's the default location anyhow) and the menu may reappear.

Good question! Details will depend on the workspace. In general, worksapces will have custom menus only if when creating, the person creating them checked the "Menu Bar" box in the dialog. If you now go back to that workspace, then View / Workspaces / Edit, and then uncheck that option, then in theory the workspace should now track the application menu bar. But I'm not sure what would trigger it to actually change. You might need to switch to another workspace then back, or perhaps close and restart MuseScore.

FWIW, individual custom palettes at least can be saved individually, try clicking the "..." menu for a given palette. So that's a possible way to preserve the most significant elements of a given workspace.

You can also find the workspace file itself - location is generally some hidden folder that depends on your OS - open it (it's just a ZIP file in disguise) and poke around and make other changes that way.
