I give up.

I accidentally deleted my tempo mark at the top of the page. I need it back. How to I re enter a
Quarter note= 110 indicator on my score? I'm at the end of my rope.

I wish that worked. It won't let me place the marker. It sure seems like it should be an easy thing. But trust. I've tried dragging that 1/4=80 thing over a thousand times. Ctrl down, Shift down, Ctrl/Shift down. Ctrl T where I want to put it. Nothing works. Thanks for your help though. It's appreciated. I'm still hoping that I can use this program but I'm starting to have doubts.

I believed it's not possible to add a Tempo mark to a measure or to barline. If that's what you're attempting it would constantly fail.

However dragging a tempo mark to a note works fine for me in MuseScore 3.6.2 or 4.01.
Alternately you can select a note and click the desired tempo mark in the Tempo Palette.

To change the BMP value I usually click the tempo mark, then double-click the number and enter the value I want. But steady as you go. I recall some keystone that deletes the note value, and Undo won't fix it. So then you just have to delete and try again.

What version of MuseScore?


P.S. I initially struggled with MuseScore 3.6's interface and workflow but now my productivity is at least eight-fold of other notation apps I've used. However I'm still pretty queazy about MuseScore 4.

I'm using V 4.0/ I'm trying to change the metronome setting for the entire score. it's playing much to fast now and I can't slow it down. In the original setup I assigned the 1/4 note a value. Unfortunately I was screwing around and deleted the setting under the Title and MS seems to have chosen a value at random. I need to set a temp 1/4 = 110 for the entire piece. I've got about two hours into trying to figure out how and I'm not even coming close.

Actually, don't drag anything. It's too imprecise. Select the measure where you want the tempo to change. Or even a note. from the tempo palette select 1/4 = 80. That is added to your score. Click the 80 until it is highlighted in blue. Maybe twice. Type 110.
