1. Open.
2. (Files of type: Any, except 'All Files' perhaps) Select All.

Desired result: All the supported file types are selected.
Actual result: Nothing is selected.

Discussion: Safari appears to be a good example for how it should work. This applies to any 'Files of type' ('All Supported Files', 'MuseScore Files', 'MusicXML Files', etc), except 'All Files' perhaps.

Using MuseScore 1.1 and 2.0 Nightly Build (5029) - Mac 10.6.8.

Could you provide a use case of when this feature would be useful to you or other users? Could you provide screenshot of safari?
Do you mean adding button in the open dialog? Shortcut?

It could be useful if working/viewing multiple scores (especially if comparing), or if you want to OMR many scores, etc. It's like viewing multiple images, some people will want to open them all at once, rather than one at a time.

This also applies to 'Preview' and 'QuickTime X' (not 'QuickTime 7', which can open anything, then display the dialogue 'The movie could not be opened').

I 'Open' either using the shortcut or 'File>Open'.

In the screenshot, anything that isn't a Safari document, image or folder is greyed out.

Compared to MuseScore, there is no 'Files of type' drop-down list.
