• Jul 18, 2010 - 23:51
S2 - Critical

Steps to reproduce bug
1. Create a new score with two instruments
2. Drag a volta bracket to the lower staff
3. Create > Instruments
4. Remove the lower staff
5. Press "OK" to dismiss the Instruments dialog

--> Crash

MuseScore version: Bug present in and 0.9.6. Bug not present in 0.9.5.

(Operating System: Windows 7)

first reported by cwhysall:


There is no way to drag a volta bracket to lower staff since volta are for the whole system and associated with the higher one. I can't reproduce.

Apparently, the initial bug came from a imported MusicXML. It looks like MuseScore does not allow the user to drag a volta on a staff except the first one but that MusicXML import can do it. This bug might be solved together with a new feature (adding voltas on different staff) or in the musicXML importer to avoid such a situation.

In step 1 create a score for two flutes (instead of different instruments).

In step 2 drag the volta bracket so that it is between the first and second staves (even though the dotted line still points to the top staff).
