Easier access to changing instruments

• Jan 25, 2021 - 09:46

Hello Musescore! Often when I change instruments (usually as mistakes I made), my first instinct is to go to the instruments section (on Mac, you press "I") to change it. However, the actual method to do it is to right-click on a bar, go to staff properties, and change it from there.

I feel that this method is less intuitive & more clunky.

My suggestion is to include a "Switch Instrument" button in the Instruments menu, so that way when you click on the original instrument, then on the instrument to switch to, then on the "Switch Instrument Button". It's a lot more intuitive that way, and we all know having that "headspace" to work fluidly is the best thing that can happen to a piece of software, especially a writing one.

Cheers and take care.


Agreed, not really sure why this doesn't come up more often. I know a lot of this is being redesigned for MuseScore 4, will be interesting to see what that ends up looking like.
