Dynamics/Hairpins/some text does not transfer from main score to parts, especially transposing instruments

• Mar 4, 2024 - 21:33

Many of the hairpins have not transferred in the parts of this file, particularly if the instrument is a transposing instrument. Most of the concert pitch instrument dynamics transferred into the parts just fine. Any changes in text also did not transfer to parts. I noted some system text, which transferred. However, when I had to make a change to that very same system text in the main score, the changes did not take place in the parts - the old unchanged text remained.



There are a number of sync issues with the main score and parts.

Is this related? https://musescore.org/en/node/361348

Importantly, are you able to recreate this issue from scratch, starting with a new score? If so providing the exact steps would be very useful in unraveling the cause.

Yes, it is the exact same issue described in the example you referenced. This was a brand new file started in 4.2.1.
There are no overly interesting exact steps. I work in concert pitch. Some parts have dynamics placed as I work through the part in the concert pitch full score; others have dynamics added when the concert pitch full score is done. I flip to transposed full score so that I can check the parts. When I open a part (almost exclusively the transposing instruments, including guitar) the hairpins are gone. Some of them were missing in the non-transposing instruments as well, but trombones came through with flying colors - almost all hairpins were present.
I needed to correct system text, which I did in the main (transposed) score. Corrections to this system text did not stick - wasn't there in the parts - the old original text I was trying to correct remained in the parts. I went back to the (transposed - I never go back to concert pitch once I'm working in transposed) main full score, deleted the system text instead of changing it. The old system text I was trying to correct remained in the parts and ALSO the new corrected system text that I replaced it with in the main score. I also save quite religiously, and always after any significant fixes/changes; literally every 1 or 2 minutes.
