Global replace?

• Jun 6, 2019 - 20:15

Is there a way to replace things globally in a MuseScore file, like you can for instance in an MS-Word file? For instance, suppose I want to select all "Marcato above" in a MuseScore score (I know how to do this) and with one operation replace all the selected "Marcato above" signs with an "Accent above." Is there a way to do this? Thanks for any information.


You can do the search, but not the replace. To do the search (which could be sueful if the goal was to delete the markings, for instance), right-click one, Select / More / Same subtype.

Now, if we allowed you to drop an articulation onto another articulation and have it replace (klike we do for clefs, key, and time signatures), then double-clicking the desired articulation in the palette would get the rest of the job done here. So, I'd encourage you to submit a Suggestion to the issue tracker for this, should be doable in just a few lines of code.

Meanwhile, if you just want to get the job done for one specific case right now, save as MSCX, in a text editor, and do your search/replace there (shouldn't be hard to figure out what text to use once you start poking around).
