Combining Scores?

• Nov 23, 2014 - 10:35

I generally use MuseScore for composing/transcribing traditional tunes. When I play these it is generally as a set - 2 or 3 tunes together.

Is there a way to easily combine scores? ie add one or more of my tunes to an existing tune.

I have searched to handbook, but have not discovered anything relevant.

At the moment, the only way I can figure out how to do this is;

1) add empty bar at end of first tune
2) select and copy second tune
3) paste into first tune

The only problem with this is that repeats, time sgnatures, key signatures, part-bars etc do not get copied, so I have to add all that in after I've pasted. To be able to combine scores instead would be a lot more efficient.

Thank you, this is most helpful...I understand correctly that this is a ver2 feature only?

However, I am not too experienced installing programs, except from .deb files or the software GUI, so I need a bit more guidance please. (I am trying this out on an external hard disk on which is installed Mint17.1 64-bit, so I don't mess up my MuseScore ver1 on my laptop.)

I have downloaded the latest 64-bit build and extracted it. I end up with an executable program file called mscore. I double click on this file and nothing happens!!

I have read the articles thanks, but am none the wiser.

Via the terminal, I cd to the directory the extracted mscore file is in, and execute the command ./mscore -F

This is what I get;

./mscore -F
./mscore: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Maybe I am making progress? So how do I fix this?
