Musical piece from previous version of MuseScore has incorrect octave in MuseScore 2.0.2

• Apr 9, 2016 - 03:13

The attached score was written in a previous version of MuseScore. I opened it in MuseScore 2.0.2 to work on an urgent project, but there is an octave number underneath the clef. When I copy passages into my current work, it displays an octave lower than intended. Can I correct the entire score (to avoid having to transpose each passage a perfect octave up when I copy passages into my current musical arrangement project)?

The octave clef is a standard clef used for certain instrument that sound an octave lower than wirtten, like guitar and bass. If you don't want it, simply replace it with a standard clef - click the first measure, double click the desired clef in the palette. If you also want to transpose the music and octave higher or lower, just select it and press Ctrl+Up or Ctrl+Down.
