New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.

All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

Help :(

 
Nobody responded when I posted this so I'm going to delete that one and post it again:

A week or two ago I asked about this. When I use the Nice Keys or Touhou soundfont and upload a score with that audio, when you listen through, repeats don't work. Here's some examples in my scores:

Here's one where I uploaded with and without the soundfont.

Please help! :(

Help?

Ok, I am trying to make a score with different instruments, but I realized I needed another instrument. Any idea how to add it instead on copy and pasting it to a new score? If there is a shortcut, please reply:D! If not, that should be fixed in an update. Thank you!

Cymbal Muted Crashes

Hello! I am trying to add muted cymbal crashes to my marching cymbal part but there is no sound in MDL for this. Would I be able to add it myself or is this simply not possible? Sorry, I'm not very savvy with this program.
Edit: I've been trying to edit the .sfz, and it's quite difficult. Is there an easy way to do this with Polyphone or is there an easier program to use?

File issue on iOS

have a strange file issue with MuseScore and hope you can give me a help.

My MuseScore Files are saved on iCloud. I was able to download them and open it with MuseScore.

Once I saw the possibility to open it with the IMSLP app. I did it, and, well, it didn’t work. That was no wonder.

Since then the mscz files are linked to the IMSLP app and could only be opened by that app - shire still not working.

If I am deleting the IMSLP App from my iPad, although the mscz files are disappearing in the iCloud. If the app is new loaded, the files are there again but they couldn’t get opened by MuseScore. Any idea?

Copyright infringement concern

There has been some concern about copyright infringement here lately and I thought of my song cycle which I recently embellished with photos of the poet (Emily Dickinson) that were taken in the 1860s. One such - https://musescore.com/user/29586932/scores/5611797 
I now fear the possibility that someone "owns" these. Could this be possible?
If so, that is a problem. I recently tried to get permission from  publisher to use words from an early 20th century poet and I never received a reply in 5 weeks. I would not even know how to find out who would have rights to these old photos, let alone expect a reply. 
Do you have any knowledge of this?

Importantly, I would like to know if there is a problem, will I be forewarned or is my music just yanked out like an old molar?

Almost reached 50 follower milestone

If you don't know already, I am now almost at 50 followers. Currently I have 39 followers so just 11 more and I will have reached the 50 follower mark. I had maybe like 4 followers 2 years ago. So clearly, I'm doing something right. My most recent score called The Storm just brought me 2 more followers. I suppose they followed me hoping to someday see the entire suite that I plan on The Storm being a part of. That suite I call Weather Music. Maybe I should compose another part of the suite for that 50 followers mark, upload it when I reach 50 followers, and then whenever I have finished the suite, upload it in its entirety.

If you want to listen to what I have so far of The Storm, here it is:

It just so happens that I have been getting rain for 3 days straight here in Ohio.

Update 1: 6/18/2019

Oh my goodness, 4 followers in a single day. That is a record for me, I am now at 43 followers. I don't know if the follower milestone or finishing the composition will come first. If the follower count does come first, that's fine. I'm not pushing myself to finish the 50 follower composition.

Update 2: 6/19/2019

Wow, 5 followers in 1 day. I don't think I will finish my 50 follower composition before I reach 50 followers. Often my composition process is slow, so don't be surprised if a week has passed and I still haven't finished the composition yet. I will get it done when I get it done. I emphasize quality over quantity with my compositions.

Update 3: 6/24/2019

I'm just 1 away from reaching the 50 followers mark. As for the composition, I'm about halfway through composing it.

How do I write an arpeggio spanning several staves (piano)?

Question is in the subject, really. Unless my English fails me _again_ and those are not staves I'm talking about.

Anyway, I have a series of 5 notes, three of which are in the bass clef and the two others in the treble clef; and they are meant to be played as an arpeggio.

I have input the scores separately on both staves, at the same beat, but I do not see how I can make the arpeggio extend from the bass clef to the treble clef, or the reverse. I have tried shortcuts which I thought were obvious (for instance, selecting the arpeggio sign and pressing Ctrl plus up or down arrow) but no luck.

How do I do this?
