Mixer: Solo glitch - singled out instrument using "solo" button now the only sound on playback of the entire score
(MuseScore recommended format)
Steps to reproduce bug (requires a score with multiple instruments)
1) Open Mixer
2) Solo out an instrument (for me, it was an acoustic guitar)
3) Playback score with "solo-ed" instrument
4) Turn off solo on instrument
5) Playback score again
Expected behavior: MuseScore should solo out the instrument in the first run through, and then, after turning off the solo, should bring the rest of the instruments back in.
Actual behavior: Solo-ed instrument is stuck as the only sound in the score even after turning solo back on and off
Discussion: The workaround I found was to turn on solo on all of the instruments in the score, and I was able to hear all the instruments again.
Version: MuseScore v. 184.108.40.20647
Downloaded from website/Not complied from source
Operating system: Windows 10 v.1803 (OS build: 17134.472)
PROBLEM: I was working with a score, and wanted to solo out one of the instruments so I could catch it up to where the rest of the instruments were in the score without it being covered up by the rest of the instruments. After getting to a stopping point, my plan was to turn off the solo so I could hear all the instruments. The problem was, when I did, no sound from the other instruments came out. The guitar was stuck in "solo" mode.
WORKAROUND: I figured out that by enabling the solo button on all of the instruments, I was able to hear all the instruments again, but it may happen again.

UPDATE (12/25/2018 10:51 CST): Fixed itself, but I don't know how or why. May still be something to look into.
I don't know what happened, perhaps its the score? I tried it on a few scores both imported from version 2 and created from scratch in version 3 with no problems. I'm using the same windows 10 build you are.
Mine actually started refusing to play anything. I soloed a trombone section, unsoloed them, and suddenly I couldn't hear anything at all, like the whole score was muted. I had to Solo anything I wanted to actually hear.
Wow, it is the greatest bug report I've ever seen! Thank you.
I see you reported the issue using not the recent release build. Could you please download and install the official release and try there? (https://musescore.org/en/download/musescore.msi)

Could you please attach the score? I cannot reproduce with any of mine :(

OP is using the official 3.0 release as am I.

The official release has build number 4785, not 4747 (which is most probably a RC)

You are correct, I thought I had downloaded the official release, but I'm still using the RC.
