Score doesn't start playback after a certain length (including repeats) and crashes if started before and reaching that limit
I have a bit of an odd situation but it happened so here we go...
I use Musescore to organize my practice sessions, write exercises, adjust number of repetitions for exercises , etc, so some of my scores are pretty lengthy, for example: if i have 10 patterns each is made of 4 measures each played in 12 Keys = 480 measures, say each pattern is repeated for at least 8 times (i use an auto-clicker to quickly change the "play count" of the whole score) so its fairly common for me to have a score that is actually thousands of measures long when considering the repeats.
Also I can also imagine someone could need to make a very long score if he/she is making an exercise book on Musescore
the problem is:
On these longer scores Musescore refuses to play beyond a maximum number of bars, ie when selecting a measure near the end it doesn't play and rewinds to the beginning of the score. I tried this on several computers and i always get the same result
you can easily replicate the bug following these steps:
1- Create a new score
2- Create a repeat sign to encompass the first 3 measures
3- Right-click on the 3rd measure to set play count
4- Enter 9999 as the play count and click OK
5- select the forth measure and press space bar to start playing
6- Nothing will happen
7- Press space-bar again playback will restart from the very beginning of the score
So as the title said... What is the maximum length for the score ?
Thank you in Advance
