In 2.0 Beta 1, can a user-created text style be deleted?

Style > Text Style > New

The ability to create a text style is great, but one also might want to remove one from the list if it's not useful.


Agreed. But do note, custom styles are local to the document you create them in, so if you've created one you don't want, at least you won't have to look at it except when viewing that document.

One little tricky way to do it is:
1) Save your Style
2) Go to the folder where it is saved (notice it when you save), copy it and rename it
3) Open the your new .mss file in a text editor and search for your added text style(s) (near end of all text) and erase it (make sure you erase all from to (about 10 lines)), and save
4) Make a new Musescore document and load your new text style and copy the music from the old score to this

Thanks, much easier!
Still new in here and wasn't aware of compressed and uncompressed files.
And for the little experience I already made:
If you want to rename one of your text styles from eg. "String 4mm" to "String 6mm", make the new text style first (String 6mm), select all simlar elements (by right click on one of them), in the Inspector window choose "String 6mm", save and then erase "String 4mm" in a text editor.
Thanks again for the help!
