Layout/Page settings Window

Layout/Page settings Window reduces to panel after clicking on "Apply" and has to be re-opened before clicking on "OK".


What does "reduces to panel" mean? Is that the same as "minimizing"? That shouldn't be possible; it's a modal dialog. But somehow, pressing Apply makes it disappear in some way?

Yes I did indeed mean "minimizing", but couldn't come up with the right word!

In fact, now that I try it again, it seems that what happens is the dialogue window disappears behind the main MuseScore window, and I then get it back by clicking on it in the panel. Then I click on OK and everything's back to normal. It's not a huge problem, but the first time it happened I thought MuseScore had crashed and spent ages working out what had happened before I realised it was there all along.

No idea! I've just been trying to find this everywhere. I'm on Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca and haven't changed the windows manager since I installed this a few weeks ago, so I suppose it's whatever the default is.

Marc, I got to the same page as you but for some reason on my installation there's no ->Desktop Settings->Windows, so I can't try out Compiz to see if it makes any difference.

Anyway, it's only one minor glitch which I thought I ought to bring to the attention of MuseScore's developers, not a huge problem.

And thanks for the great work; I've been using Finale on Windows for years and had put off moving over to Linux (too many viruses on Windows) uniquely because Finale wasn't available on Linux. I still have Windows on a partition, but frankly, having discovered the potential of MuseScore, particularly version 2.0, I hardly ever bother booting up with Windows and using Finale any more. I was highly sceptical that any software, free or otherwise, could even approach Finale, but you're definitely getting there - well done!
