Updating to MuseScore

• Feb 10, 2021 - 14:06

Can someone please explain what the attached pics mean when I was uploading to the latest MuseScore 3.6.2? Also, I thought that the newest update would take care of the SYSTEM distancing issues throughout my score.

I have attached my score as well so you can see what I'm referring to. I have tried tweaking the vertical adjustments "off" and "on," and also trying to use spacers. I just can't get my score to look right.

I am visually impaired and need help. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Close all applications you are using before launching the installer which you might want to re-download from: https://musescore.org/en/download

I didn't understand what it has to do with the score that apparently was generated with 3.6.2 but you can try Format/Style/Page and disable Vertical Justification.

I did have ALL applications closed. I uninstalled MuseScore 3.6.2 and reinstalled using the installer on my desktop. I still got the messages.

As far as my score and 3.6.2, I was wondering if there was a fix for the spacing of systems. I can't seem to get my 2 system pages to be 3 systems like those on prior pages.

Yes, I found the same when trying to update from within MuseScore 3.6.1. Even though I exited MuseScore after it launched the installer, it left the Qt Web Engine process running.

So I just downloaded from musescore.org, then did a reboot, then ran the installer.

For what it is worth, I have this almost every time I close MuseScore. It leaves the Qt Qtwebengineprocess running. These seems to be bug in the QT dev tools used for developing MuseScore.
It is not just MuseScore doing this. If you have a windows system, of course a reboot will work but you need to ensure to install the new version without starting the current installed version first. Another option is to manually kill these processes (if you know how to).

This seems to caused by the fact MuseScore is using a bit older version of QT, hope 1 day the latest version of QT can/will be used and make this annoying thing go away.

Checkout this screenshot, I just started MuseScore and closed it a few times:
