MuseScore 2.3.1 + MDL

  • Create 2 scores for MDL snare
  • In the first one, go to the Synthesizer dialog and press "Save to Score".
  • Save and close this file
  • In the second one, you also want to save the same configuration to the score
  • Go to Synthesizer again, you can't, the button is disabled.

MDL is not a requirement, it could be any synth settings, like 2 SF2 files or a change in the reverb.

I made simple fix. It is easy way, but it is not well done work. Buttons 'save/load to Score' always become enable when user click on another score. In the current implementation, there is no verification of already loaded synth.

I guess it would have been more user friendly to check if the synthstate from the score was the same from the state of the synth in order to enable/disable the right buttons. But, sure this fix works too.

@Ziya the volume of the synth is part of the settings indeed. So changing it makes the synth state different from the saved one, so the buttons should be reenabled.

@chenlung I don't understand what you are saying. Synthesizer settings are never saved or loaded without user actions. So you can load synth settings from one score, switch to another score and load settings from another score if you want. But it's only if you want. If we would change that , and load synth settings automatically when switching sores, and you would have two scores with a different set of sfzs, it would take a few minute to go from one score to the other...

@lasconic Yes, I think I misunderstood the issue.

What about Documents Stacked/Side-by-Side? Is the upper/left score intended to be the focus?
