Changing words in musescore 1 scores before changing score to musescore 2

• Jan 16, 2017 - 06:49

I have many scores written in Musescore 1. My syllable division was wrong in most. Can I correct this before changing the scores into Musescore 2 to enable me to send them to YouTube?

I'd be very grateful for help.


You can still work on MuseScore 1.x files using MuseScore 1.x. Or by using 2.x.
I'm not sure what that has to do with 'sending them to YouTube'?

Well, YouTube shows vidoes, not scores, so I don't know what you're talking about?
Or are you talking about's video scores? indeed doesn't accept 1.x scores anymore.

So it doesn't really matter whether you fix your 1.x scores using MuseScore 1.3 or 2.0.3, in the end you'd need to 'migrate' them to 2.0.3 anyway. And all the problems your scores may have you can fix in 2.0

Thank you very much for all your help! Much appreciated.
Re YouTube: when I open my profile on the right of each score it says "send to musescore" I have already sent many written in Musescore 2. YouTube Merle Lamprecht gets my channel. I don't know enough as to how it gets there. But I shall migrate my scores in Musescore1 to Musescore 2 (when I find out how to do it!!) and then correct them.
Thanks again

Or just "Save". MuseScore itself will make this a "Save As", as it detecs that it is importing a 1.x score, so treats it the same as any other Import and not as a regular opening of a MuseScore (2.x) file. Just make sure to not force MuseScore to overwrite the existing 1.x score.

OK, so you indeed mean the "Send to YouTube" on And indeed in order to do this you need to have your score saved with MuseScore 2.x first, then uploaded to
The Migration itself is quite easy: just open the 1.x score with MuseScore 2.0.3 and save it at a different place (this is the easy part. Don't overwrite the 1.x score though, you may need it again later), fix up whatever you think needs fixing (this may be the more difficult part), then upload to (again the easy part)
