Save and Save As dialogue boxes fail to open when Title contains colon
In MuseScore Version 1.2, Revision 5470, on Windows 7
Sometimes, after creation of a new score, when I click on "Save" or "Save As" the Save dialogue box fails to open. If I try to close the file, the Dialogue box to ask whether to save or discard the changes appears, but when I click save there, the save dialogue again fails to open. The problem seems to happen when there is a colon (":") in the Title of the score.
Workaround: Create a new score with a different title and copy everything to the new score and save. Alternatively, save online, or don't use colons in titles.
To reproduce the problem:
File -> New
for the Title, enter (without quotes) "a b:" (Essentially, you need a word, then a space, then another word containing a colon, e.g. "Exercise 3: G major")
Add piano as the instrument
Choose G# as the key signature
Enter one note on the score (e.g. crotchet A in the soprano)
Press the Save button
... or go to File-> Save ...or File -> Save As
....and nothing happens.... which means you can't save your work.
It took me a while to work out the colon was the problem, but now I know I can work around it. Nevertheless, a fix would be nice.
