"Bad Format" error

• May 14, 2015 - 17:26

MuseScore will no longer open this file and an error pops up stating "Cannot open file: (file location) bad format".

All attempts at removing "&" signs and accidental flats have not worked (as suggested in other forum posts).

Just so people know, I used MuseScore 1.3 to show the line# where the problem is. MS 2.0 does not show this information anymore, and this can prove invaluable to troubleshooting XML issues so I wonder if it can be added back?

I also wonder how it happened? Laurenkyork, did you manually edit line 1974, the line for the Trumpet instrument name?
