problems with 2.3.2 version

• Oct 1, 2018 - 09:47

hello everybody
I have a couple of problems with the latest version (2.3.2) of this Wonderful Tool Musescore :

1 - when updating from 2.3 I lost all the settings of my scores in the Mixer (e.g. horns turned to harpsichord, trombones to overdrive guitar etc.). As I have many scores with the same organum it would be a long & tedious work to rebuild them... is there any simple way to get my settings back ?

2 - As I copy/paste a single note it now takes the lenght of where I paste it, instead of keeping the lenght of the copied note... is there a setting somewhere to choose this option ?

thank you



  1. Updating from 2.3.1 to 2.3.2 wouldn't itself change anything about sound settings in the Mixer - more likely, you changed which soundfonts you are using, and that that is what caused the change. So you will need to try to remember which soundfonts you were using before and set it back that way. This too would not have changed on its own; it's an explicit step you would have had to take yourslef (perhaps you instaleld, or uninstalled, the MDL drumline extension)?

If that doesn't help, then in order for us to understand and assist better, we'd need you to atach a score you are having problems with, and say which soundfonts you are using (see View / Synthesizer, the Fluid and Zerberus tabs).

  1. Copying a single note is indeed specifically meant as a way to copy pitch only. If you want to copy the whole chord info - including duration etc, then copy the whole chord, not just the note. That is, select it to get a blue rectangle around it (Shift+click does the trick is nothing is currently selected). BTW, this isn't new, but there were bugs in older versions where sometimes it didn't work as intended when copying single notes, and as far as I know these are all fixed now.

Thank you - that helps
ok for the point 2
for the point 1 "...I will need to try to remember..." but there is definitively something going strange :
I'm using 3 main soundfonts:
GeneralUser GS SoftSynth v1.44.sf2
New MuseScore Soundfont.sf2
+ ethan's bassoon
and (in the attached score), in Mixer you can see that e.g. the french horn, trompette, trombone, & alto have all turned to "stereo grand" but yet not playing the same sound ! ! !

  • how comes ?
  • I would have tried to re-install V.2.3.1 to see what happens but I can't find it anywhere on the net...?
    Thanx again

According to your score itself, your soundfonts should be

GeneralUser GS SoftSynth v1.44.sf2
New MuseScore Soundfont.sf2

You will need to have exactly those loaded in exactly that order, whether using 2.3.1 or 2.3.2 or any other version.
