Note input A

Reported version
S3 - Major
GitHub issue

If I want to do note input with my normal text keyboard and I hit A, no A appears. The cursor jumps up to the beginning of that measure and to the upper staff.


Regression No Yes

What operation system, what language, what keyboard layout?

I've seen this being reported many times before, i believe all in the forum
So far only Mac users and with non-English keyboards

Frequency Few Many
Severity S4 - Minor S3 - Major
Status needs info active

I also suffer from it every time. Very annoying problem!
(Don't know what to fill in under Status, Type and Regression with this form)

I'm using MuseScore 4.0.1 and have the same problem. Details:
OS: macOS 13.1, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 4.0.1-230121751, revision: 9b70a8c
I'm in the sv_SE locale, so both my MuseScore and my MacOS are localized in Swedish. I use an Apple keyboard with Swedish layout and numerical keypad.

(Previously reported in the Swedish-language forum.)

The same issue here.

The original macOS settings of "Language and Region" on my MacBook was:
Region: Taiwan
Language: Chinese Traditional-Primary, English (US) , Japanese

When I change Region to "US" and Language to "English (US)-Primary" and try Help > Reverting to Factory. The issue disappears. Language setting in Musescore 4 becomes "system default".

Then I change back my macOS setting to Taiwan and Chinese Traditional-Primary. Somehow Musescore 4 shows everything in "Simplified Chinese (China)" instead of "Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)". Since Simplified Chinese is very different from Traditional Chinese (and Taiwan is totally different from China), I have to switch the language setting in Musescore 4 from "system default" to "Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)", which is the last item in the language list. Then the same issue appears again. The cursor jumps back to the beginning of the bar whenever I press A.

I feel that the issue is highly related to the language setting in Musescore 4.
