Templates missing?

• May 19, 2014 - 01:56

I'm having the most peculiar issue with a string quartet template I created. I was told that in order to create a template, I should simply save a file to the templates folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\MuseScore\templates). After doing this, I am able to access the template I created from the Create New Score dialog. However, I would like to remove the template and replace it with an updated version. But alas, when I went to delete the template, it is nowhere to be found in the \templates directory. It is still in the Create New Score dialog though.

...why not simply create the updated version and save it with the exact same name as the old template?
Windows may protest: 'the file already exists, do you wish to overwrite?'
Answer: Yes.

Have you done a system wide search for 'String quartet.mscz'?


As a footnote.....

It's good practice to save templates in .mscx format - not the compressed version .mscz

We are trying to standardise this for MuseScore 2

So it would be a good idea to start developing a good habit :)

It also has the advantage of being immediately distinguishable from your ordinary score files :)

BTW have you got the Display hidden files option checked?

If not that could explain why your template isn't visible.
