v4.3 closes app when document window is closed

• May 18, 2024 - 08:02

Prior to v4.3 when I closed the document window, I was left with the list of recent files and could open a new document. Now the entire application is closed.

OS: Windows 10 Version 2009 or later, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore Studio version (64-bit): 4.3.0-241231433, revision: 5f36e74


Click the X on the main score tab of the open document, not the X at the top right of the window. This will close the window if there's another window open, or it will just close the document and go to the home screen if that's the only window. Clicking the X on the window closes the window, even if it's the only one. I don't think this has changed since v4.0.

The document doesn't have a separate window in version 4. The document only has a tab, and closing the tab never closes the app. Closing the window will close the app if there are no other documents open. This hasn't changed between 4.2 and 4.3; it's been the same since 4.0.

You might might need to post a screenshot or screen recording of what's happening, because I can't make sense of what you're saying has changed.
Since 4.0, there has been a separate window for each document, and tabs within each window for the score and for each part that is open. MuseScore tabs.png Clicking the X on a part tab closes that part but not the document, clicking the X on the score tab (circled) closes the document and returns to the home screen if that is the only window open (otherwise it closes the document and the window, but does not close MuseScore), and clicking the X in the top right of the window closes that window, regardless of whether there is another window open.
There was a very noticeable change in the behaviour from 3.6.2 to 4.0, because the structure of the windows changed and there is no longer one window with tabs for each open document; but I'm not noticing any change to how this works from 4.2 to 4.3.
