Crash after entering several notes.

I have been working on a score that has several sections and now when I reopen to add to the score, the program crashes after entering just a few notes. It’s a consistent number every time. I can enter five notes but on the sixth, it crashses.

Which operating system?
Can you attach the score you are having problems with?

I attached the file (my bad, I totally forgot to put it in the original) and I am using Windows 10. I restarted my computer, and when I opened musescore it opened with the "session quit unexpectedly." I tried both restore options (yes/no) and the same issue happens every time. The consistency isn't present; this time it crashed after three notes. The program just closes, no "not responding" state, it just freezes and closes immediately. I tried it with another score and there was no issue. Thanks!

I can't get it to crash, so where and how exactly are you entering notes, step by step?

This score is corrupt.
To observe this:

1) Go in page 6 main score: in the first system, the time signature is 4/4
2) Toggle in Trombone 1 part. Same location, ie on the first MM Rest (16): there is any time signature ?
And in measure properties (after pressing "M"), you notice the real measure duration is 2/4. So, problem....

To get a crash:
1) main score, p.6, first staff/trombone1
2) Enter four/fives quarter notes --> crash

To solve this, and repair your file: Delete parts -> Ok -> Re-create parts (now, the time signature 4/4 is ok is main score and parts)

Well, for a corrupt score anything can happen, so we may just need to close this issue, but then again MuseScore does not report it as being corrupt, but should

@NickBeeny: do you recall (idea/clue?) why and when would have appeared the discrepancy between the 4/4 time signature in main score (page 6) and no time signature in parts (and 2/4 real duration)?
