I hope I chose the right forum category. I am currently using the most updated version of Musescore. I am having an issue with pizzicato. I'm not super computer savvy so I'm a bit stumped. I am currently using Virtual Playing Orchestra 1st-violin-SOLO-PERF, viola-SOLO-PERF, and Cello-SOLO-PERF. I tried inserting the "pizz." option into each measure that called for it from the "text" drop down menu, but it did not change arco to pizzicato. Then I tried to do it the old fashioned way in Musescore. I typed my own staff text "pizz.", then tried to change the channel of each of the string instruments. However, pizzicato was not even an option. The only option in the channels was "normal."
It's interesting because pizzicato worked on my other computer, but I switched to my current computer because the other one didn't have enough power to play my piece without glitching. I transferred my file from my first computer which had a completely updated version of Musescore to a computer that had a slightly older version. I then updated the second computer to the most current version because I realized it needed an update. Would this cause issues with being able to use pizzicato? Or perhaps it's the soundfont? Thanks in advance for your help!
