yes, but musescore offered a very powerful method of having it all in SVG.. there is no comparison with native OS type that only take a normal picture. So... not the same, I hope Musescore doesnt take a turn towards hidding and changing things that were already proved to be useful and superior next to other software.

Good point about SVG! Anyhow, if you check out the various posts about this, you'll see this wasn't a decision to remove functionality, just an unfortunate and temporary side effect of the change to an entirely new UI system - the old code for the old image capture simply didn't work with the new system and there was no simple way to adapt it. So rather than delay the entire MuseScore 4 project while this is implemented, the decision was made to release 4.0 without this (and the very small handful of other features that had to be temporarily dropped for similar reasons, like the score comparison tool), and then redesign and reintroduce new versions of these tools in an update later.

As Marc has mentioned, this was most certainly not an intentional move to lift out useful functionality. In particular the SVG output was a nice touch. The problem we faced was that the older solution for it was technically incompatible with our new system. This simply means that it would have taken a large amount of time to rebuild and test. We felt it was much safer (and would speed up our release) to bump it to a smaller release. Apologies about this.
