Score sections missing

• May 26, 2015 - 16:04

I am using MuseScore on a MacBook Pro. A couple of weeks ago, I saved one of my scores as a wav file and as a pdf. No problem doing either process. However, when I opened the score yesterday, the last 22 measures are blank! Actually, only the last 14 are blank, the 8 measures after are totally missing. I filled in the missing parts, saving often, and everything seemed to be fine. When I opened the score today, the same thing happened. The parts I replaced yesterday are missing again! Yet when I saved the score as a wav and pdf a couple of weeks back, it was complete.

Anybody have any ideas?


It's impossible to say without seeing the score in question. Can you attach it to this thread, ideally with the complete PDF to compare it with? Then we'll see what we can figure out from it. The file may be corrupted in some way that may be fixable—and perhaps we can figure out how to prevent it from happening in the future.

In the meantime, you might try creating a new blank score with the same instruments, copying and pasting everything from the old score, and then filling in what's missing in the new score and saving that.

Hi Zack,

After playing around I did find a backup to my original work. I had to make some edits to it and it seems to have saved without a problem. It was rather late last night when I working and I'm wondering if it simply was an ID10T error. I will keep an eye on it to see if any repeated issues occur. Thanks for you response.
