This app is shit

• Oct 31, 2021 - 18:20

I was working on a composition, I closed my laptop, and when I re-opened it the app was bugged and it kicked me out, erasing all of my progress. DON'T USE IT. IT SUCKS


Alternately, people should definitely use this well-supported & free notation application which absolutely doesn't suck and simply have the common sense to press save once in a while.

FWIW, if your computer glitched after waking from sleep (a common issue on many systems), there isn't anything MuseScore can do about it, but for the record, it does autosave your work every two minutes. So even if you forgot to ever hit Save, after a crash you can still recover your score next time you start MsueScore it will ask you. Even if you accidentally answer "no", it's not too late, just see and read up on the autosave feature.

And next time, do remember to save your work, it's a crucial step using any computer program!

Yeah, it does suck unfortunately. I was really counting on version 4 so I can finally dump Sibelius. What's even more irritating is that "Tantacrul" talked a lot of smack about how bad Sibelius is (and it STILL is!) but beyond updating the interface and workflow, there are still major glitches and missing features that are just inexcusable. Don't get me wrong, A LOT of really good work went into improving MuseScore but the earlier versions were so lacking that most of the improvements went into bringing the program up to speed with Sibelius and Dorico. Sadly it still has a long way to go. My latest peeve is a severe audio latency problem and there's no option to choose my ASIO driver in the I/O settings. Even Sibelius managed to get that right. Maybe Musescore is going the route of Sibelius—offer features nobody asked for instead of "really" improving the program ($$$). Musescore even partially adopted the ugly purple color scheme of Sibelius. I'm here to tell you, MuseScore, that's DEFINITELY not a selling point. Ditch the ugly AVID purple.
