Open Newer file in old MuseScore

• Jan 2, 2011 - 23:17

Is there any way to convert a file saved with a new version of MuseScore (a nightly build) so that it can be opened in a previous version ( stable)?


Maybe export it to MusicXML from the nightly, then open it in I don't know if that will work or not, but maybe?

The only thing I've noticed so far is the Part names. By that I mean, in the original file, when I went to File->Parts, it was empty on the left because I hadn't created any, but on the right-hand window each checkbox was labeled with the name of that part, so when I created parts in the left window it was easy to tell what lines I needed to include. After export to xml and opening, the checkboxes were blank, so I just had to check back to the piece to get the order of the parts first.

If I notice anything else that was lost in the export, I'll post back.
