Musescore 3 files compatibility issues
I am now regularly using musescore 3 on my desktop.
1) Unfortunately, I just discovered that I cannot use it on my tablet, because it runs Windows 10 32bits version. Hopefully, a 32bits release of musescore 3 will be available soon.
2) As my scores are organised by category rather than by software, I have a problem with the same file type being used by both musescore 2 and 3, but not readable by musescore 2 if generated by musescore 3. Is there a way to easily identify them? Due to compression, the contents is binary...
3) I am getting concerned about this compatibility matter; I understand that it is more exciting to develop new features than to file converters, but if the focus/policy is just to move ahead from version n to version n+1 wthout keeping further (even backward) compatibility, I see a risk to be stuck with a too old or too new score one day or another. Based on a reply to another post, the solution could be to convert all my Musescore files to music xml format to keep a "safe" copy hopefully surviving the evolution of Musescore. Is there a way to perform such conversion using Musescore line command parameters, so that it can be automated in a batch file.
4) I just discovered that I cannot open my new scores (version 3) with Musescore Songbook on my Android device. Is there a plan to adapt it in a near future?
Of course I realise that there is a lot of work to get a new major release in place; thanks to all those who are working on it. I would just like to stress that keeping at least some compatibility would avoid all these "cannot read file" issues and facilitate the migration.
