I cant open some of my scores

• May 21, 2024 - 02:56

When I try to open some of the scores I've been working on it says "This file could not be opened. Please make sure that musescore studio has permission to open it"
How do I do that? And they're a scores that I wrote and have saved so why does musescore all of a sudden need permission

Don't be too quick drawing conclusions here, usually files saved locally should give less issues than cloud, -not- the other way around.
Can you post a screen capture of the error you get when you open the file from the file itself, and another one for the error message you get when you try from MuseScore studio ?

Sounds like an issue with cloud saving, and then trying to open scores from the cloud while not signed in. Signing in should give MuseScore the permission to open the files.

Are the scores your trying to open original scores that you saved from MS or are they scores you downloaded from MS website? If they were downloaded than a copy should still be in the macs download folder. To see where MS folders are on the mac follow this path. From the MS app drop down the MUSESCORE STUDIO menu.

The path to the scores is at the top. You can click on the folder icon and it will open. You won't be able to open them from there, but you will know where they are. Then use finder to go to the file location

Try making a new score and saving it than reopening it.

I'll only be able to check back occasionally for the rest of the day. But I suspect it's a problem with the path to the scores.
