Musescore 3.6.2 won't stop crashing.
This is going to be a little convoluted, so fair warning.
There's been a cycle of crashes with my Musescore program, and I have no idea what could be the main source of all of it. I have, however, noticed a pattern:
-First, Musescore will randomly crash immediately upon startup, presumably when loading a score (despite my preferences telling it to "start empty" with no start center). This happens randomly, and sometimes it doesn't happen at all. However, it always seems to happen within a few startups, usually within a week of the last one.
-When this happens, I then run Musescore with factory settings, and then one of the following three things happens, seemingly randomly:
-The start center crashes and I have to try factory settings again.
-The software opens just fine, but as soon as I try to change to the advanced palette, it crashes.
-Either the software runs fine without any problems or I don't attempt to use the advanced palette.
-Once I get through to using Musescore normally, the cycle repeats itself whenever it decides to crash again.
Additionally, Musescore always crashes after I minimize the software and bring it back up. This doesn't ever seem to have a bearing on the "crash cycle," but it prevents me from ever minimizing the program.
