staff text filtering the % symbol?

• Nov 11, 2019 - 15:16

In certain keyboard scores I include text that marks when I need to move the modulation wheel to a certain %, with the latest update it now seems like the % symbol is automatically filtered out of text lines. For example, if I go command T and type "wheel to 50%" and then exit the text formatting it becomes "wheel to 50". How can I be able to still use the % symbol?


OMG, this is actually so (OS: macOS 10.15, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 4761df6). I had been using it frequently ("Phrasing by portato at 85%"), but not so recently, I guess. This is pretty awful.

I looked into this but didn't get far. I can see the % is recorded in the text - the Object Debugger shows it as an ASCII/Unicode escape sequence. No idea why it isn't being processed correctly. I don't see any relevant changes in the code responsible for the editing or the displaying of text (textedit.cpp and textbase.cpp).
