How to select totally everything?
Hello everybody! What a wonderful program! What a wonderful community! I have just started using it and am already amazed that I can apply color to virtually everything, including beams and so on! A feature, that I really needed and which I haven't seen so far.
Just could anybody please let me know, how to select totally everything? I mean, when I press ctrl+a, it selects all the notes alright, but is there a way to select everything, including, bar lines, clefs, key sharps/flats and time signature?
Not exactly, but that wouldn't normally be a useful thing to do, either. For example, if you want to delete everything, Ctrl+A is all you need - that followed by Ctrl+Delete deletes all measures. You don't need to have the clefs or barlines etc selected for that - the delete measures command automatically does the right thing. What is it you are actually trying to accomplish?

What I understood: Select all the score, all visible elements, and change the color.
I do not think you can do in one go. From Style/Text select each elements, and change the color?

Thank you for replying guys! So the point of all that is that I have been trying to make a score, prepared for CNC milling machine. So I need different heights, in order for a milling software to be able to differentiate which vector should be milled with, say, height X and which with height Y. I need to make music element different from lines in terms of color. So I want lines be on one height, and all of the notes, accidentals, clefs etc. to be a different height, so I need lines to be one color and everything else - a different color. I do this relief music score for my blind friends, who want to know how stave music notation looks like.
It is not a problem for me to select clefs manually after all, I just wanted to know if there is a way to select them automatically.

Probably you already know, however:
Right-click an element;
Select -> All similar elements (and/or More);
By Inspector change the color.

I didn't know that! Thank you a lot.
I was also wondering how that would be possible, especially since the "join scores" is currently not available in Musescore 3 and I am trying to copy and paste different movements of a piece in the same project. "Ctrl+A" selects the notes but not time signatures, special barlines and so on.
Is there a solution ?

thank you for the quick response. Is there a reason for that ? That seems such an obvious necessity.

The developers haven't added the capability to copy any system items in spite of repeated requests. You have to manually enter them. In the case of time signatures it's advisable to do so before you paste to prevent notes being rewritten as ties. See #16332: Copy and paste honoring actual time signatures of selection for one example.

Ok Mike. Sounds like bad news but thank you very much anyway.
