Add Copy Part Layout Musescore 4

• Dec 31, 2022 - 02:03

Hey all,

I'm not the first and won't be the last - please add the Copy Part Layout to Musescore 4. If I'm not seeing it, please advise me where I can find it.

I found a plugin for Musescore 3 that made it so you can copy the system breaks from the full score to all of the parts - you couldn't copy from one part to another, but it was still really useful.

I'm doing a test run of Musescore by writing a big band chart - and I think my heart stopped realizing that there wasn't a copy part layout function added. I thought that would be the first thing Musescore 4 would offer, next to 2 bar rests.

If anyone has a workaround, please do advise. I have not tried this manual working solution - - but it looks daunting, and I don't know if this will work with musescore 4.


I second this, and I'd like to hear from the Musescore team if this is a feature that's planned or not.

I've always been a huge advocate for Musescore over the competition, but as I have to write more and more big band charts for school I'm actually starting to question the viability of it.
I can't understand why they haven't implemented it yet, it's such a simple feature that would make a big difference.

Musescore overall needs better tools for jazz writing - the chord input is still very limited (MuseJazz font is ugly, some chord extensions are still not recognized properly, polychords aren't a thing...)

Has there been any word from devs in regards to this question? It would be a game-changer, otherwise you have to go to every single part and make the same corrections...
