Cannot change style and page margin defaults in MuseScore

• Sep 28, 2020 - 04:20

I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to make a lyrics style change and make it stick between invocations of MuseScore. I want to set my odd and even lyrics text styles to 14pt. I can change these styles and they are remembered as long as MuseScore remains open. But I cannot find a way to make the style change permanent. The next time I start MuseScore, the lyrics text sizes revert back to 11pt.

Ditto for page margins.

Is there a way to make style changes and page margins remembered between invocations of MuseScore?

Your original post sounds like you are entering the lyrics. Setting the font size to 14, saving the file then opening it again. When you open the file the font size is 11 again. This works fine, so I'm not understanding what's going wrong.

To be clear: these are style settings, so they affect the current score only. They are definitely remembered across invocations of the program, but only for that score. If you believe you have a score where you made those changes but they aren't remembered, please attach it so we can investigate.

But if you want to change the default for future score,s best way is to save your score to your Templates folder, then set that as the starting point next time you create a new score with File / New. You can also save the style as an MSS file and use Edit / Preferences / Score specify that as the default new scores created without a template.
