Drum Palette Hidden/Small Icons

• Feb 24, 2021 - 14:05

As shown in attached photo the drum palette bar is hidden down at the bottom of the screen.

I have exhausted all the icon size settings I can find as well as all palette properties but cannot seem to arrange the drum note input bar in a position that is usable. Posting this after pouring through other forum postts.

Any help appreciated.

Typically this happens if using a non-standard display where MuseScore cannot determine the resolution. And in these cases you'd see other strange things, like palette and toolbar icons also be too small, and your score too small when viewed at 100% zoo as well. Are you finding any of those true also? If so, you'll want to start MuseScore using the "-D xxx" command line option, where "xxx" is the true display resolution in DPI. Do web searches to learn how to use the command line for your particular OS if that's new to you. Alternateively set the environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1 (again, web search if you aren't familiar with how to set environment variables for your particular OS).
