Text edit and formatting BUG
S3 - Major
Editing any text in the score is impossible.
No matter if it is a title, subtitle, composer, system text or staff text - behavior of the text box editor is unpredictable.
Also placement of the text box in the score title section does not correspond to the placement in the exported PDF file.
Attached is a blank score with few texts. Try editing any of the texts and watch result after your every stroke
Better use the forum https://musescore.org/en/forum/6
Can you explain step by step what you want to achieve?
I just want to be able to EDIT the text that I entered. At the moment text editing is impossible, because it gives unpredictable results
Just double click the text to put it into edit mode.
I can enter edit mode, but then editor behaves unpredictably. Cursor position is ignored and characters are entered and deleted in random places instead of the cursor position.
I use Musescore for >6 years and never had a problem with editing text.
But after I updated to version 3.6 for windows 10 I cannot even edit a tempo field without struggles.
How to REVERT to the previous version of Musescore ??? I cannot live with unreliable text editor....
FYI I am a computer programmer with several decades experience....
In reply to I can enter edit mode, but… by email@example.com
Have you tried https://musescore.org/en/handbook/3/revert-factory-settings ?
Are you by chance working with a multi-screen setup and have the scaling setting differently for the different screens?
Yes, I work with 2 screens, but Musescore is on 1 screen
Both screens have the same aspect ratio 1920x1080.
On one screen text editor works OK, but on another screen it does not
What's the scaling setting on both? I'd bet one is set to 100% and the other to 125% or 150%
(And if so, this behavoir isn't new with 3.6, it's the same with at least 3.3.4 too, I beliebe, but would need to re-test)
I had "icons" scaling 100% on one monitor and 125% on the other monitor. How to teach Musescore which scaling to use?
I believe it uses the settings of the primary monitor
I did some tests and Musescore always uses scaling from #1 monitor and always ignores scaling from #2 monitor...
So, I can use Musescore correctly on #1 monitor.
If I need to use Musescore on monitor#2 then monitor #2 should have the same icon scaling as monitor #1 .... Nice feature....
So, workaround is : use the same Windows 10 icon scaling on all monitors...
Interestingly, music notation is OK regardless of Windows 10 "icon" scaling, only text fields are affected in the score...
