Help - infuriating extra bars lines!

• Nov 17, 2009 - 10:36

I am totally new to Musecore, so please forgive me if this has an obvious solution.

Musecore keeps adding strange, extra bar lines in the middle of my score that I cannot get of. They seem to get added whenever I do any other operation. For example: if I click on one of these extra lines and try to make it invisible, it adds another line! I end up chasing lines along an increasingly long bar!!

The first time I tried Musecore, it created so many extra lines that I decided to start again. I wrote the whole piece with no lines appearing. Then I closed the file, only to find that the next time I re-opened my score...there they were back again!?

I'm using Musecore on Ubuntu (Karmic, 64 bit) and I have this morning added the extra repositories and upgraded Musecore to version 0.9.5 without any improvement on the score I have written.

I really hope there is a solution to this - it's driving me crazy!



Version 0.9.4 had several bugs that created this extra bar lines. Version 0.9.5 can't repair a corrupted file but most of the "extra bar lines" bugs are fixed.

Oh - I see.

So because I created the original script with version 0.9.4 the bugs in that version meant I had the additional bar lines.
And even though I have upgraded to 0.9.5, the original file is corrupted and cannot be repaired by the newer version.

However, if I were to create a new score, then it should be fine!

That's good, because I was beginning to really like Musescore!

Thanks for the reply.
I don't know how to mark this as 'solved', but it is.

EDIT: in which case, version 0.9.5 could do with being in the normal Ubuntu repositories ASAP

MuseScore 0.9.5 depends on Qt 4.5 so unfortunately it can't be included in old versions of Ubuntu. From what I understand, MuseScore 0.9.5 is in the "normal Ubuntu repositories" for the latest version of Ubuntu (Karmic Koala).
