I don't know if it's a bug, but i put it in this catégorie.
When i want to go to a specific measure, find go to absolute measure starting at 1 at the begining of score regardless "Add to measure number" offset.



Yes, i think it's important. remember topic about "break multi measure rest".

but if all other user prefere absolute find. don't change it!


You can't curently, that is the problem. I think it should be made possible, absolute numbers (go to nth measure) are pretty pointless IMHO.
If I have a printout with measure numbers and spot a mistake in a certain measure, I'd need be able to get to that measure number directly and shouldn't be forced to have to count all measures from start of score up to the desired one to get it right.

I know this is an old thread, but I'd like to add my voice to those who would like the option to have "Find" go to the measure numbers that appear on the score rather than absolute numbers. I'm singing from a printed score that numbers continuously across 4 movements or sections and practicing with separate midi files for each movement. I can synchronize the measure numbers in MuseScore, but I can't use Find to locate a measure that corresponds to the one on my printed score.
