Palette Search Crash and Drum Set Notation Palette Error

• May 31, 2023 - 16:55

Over the past day or two, I've experienced minor issues while using MuseScore 4. Sometimes when I try to type in the search bar under the "Palettes" tab, the program freezes and then crashes. This has happened about 4 times in the past 24 hours.

Also, when notating a drum set part, the notes and labels don't match the sound preview that plays. For example, When I click to preview the Closed Hi-Hat, a Tom sound plays instead. When I click to preview the Acoustic Snare, a Floor Tom sound plays. It's like all the sound previews in the palette are mixed up. When I actually put notes onto the sheet music, the proper sounds play. Just not when previewing the notes in the palette.


The palette search crash is sporadic and so far no one has precise steps to reproduce it. if you find any. please followup in

The percussion preview issue is known and fixed for 4.1, it happens only if the top staff of the score is transposing and you aren't in concert pitch mode. Workaround, then, is to enable concert pitch mode while working with the drum palette if hearing the correct preview is important. It will actually play correctly either way.
