clicking footer text corrupts parts

• Aug 13, 2020 - 15:56

In a score with footer text and parts, clicking the footer text while viewing a part turns the part into a full score. Opening a different part tab in the project seems to revert the part back.

1) create a score
2) add footer text (or add Copyright text in New Score Wizard in step 1)
3) go to Parts and make parts
4) go to one of the part tabs
5) click the footer text
Result: the part becomes identical to the the full score until you open a different part tab.

Additionally, MuseScore will crash if you try to close the project while viewing the corrupted part.

A clarification: adding footer text to the score will not affect any parts that were already created, so following these steps as given doesn't work for me - there is no footer text to add at step 5. So, it is necessary to reverse steps 2 & 3 I think. Then I see what is described here

Also, when I first tried this by adding footer while in the part, I got a somewhat different result. It worked for the very first part, but then when I tried it on any other part, after adding the footer and then clicking it I got the first part, not the score.
