PLEASE FIX: Cannot mute parts in mixer on iPhone App

I use the iPhone App constantly for my job, as I teach choir. My favorite features were 1) The ability to mute/change the volume on separate tracks and 2) the ability to click anywhere in the music to begin playing.
Since the previous update 2/3ish weeks ago, both of those functions have stopped. When I try to mute a track, it still continues to play. I have tried everything to fix it, including deleting and redownloading the App. In addition, you now have to "slide" the bar to start where you want and it takes WAY too long to find the spot you need in large scores. I miss the tap and there you are function.

Please consider fixing both of these problems in newer updates. The functionality of the app is now lost for me.

Thank you!

Gift worthy?

I wrote a poem to go with this music I had but Musescore won't let me add lyrics so I'm including them here.  I thought about giving this to my nephew as a wedding present but I want to know if it's any good.
Until now I never knew more than moments
Until now I never knew more than me
Until now I never knew a song could be found in silence.

Until now I never dreamed I'd wake up
Until now I never dreamed out loud
Until now I never looked into the crowd and found silence.

We forever, without you never.  We will come together
and hold onto what ever, who ever, where ever
we find behind the silence.

Hi y'all!

Hope you're having a great day!

Bagpipe (GHB) auto transposition problems

Hi, relatively new user here currently getting familiar with Musescore 3, mainly for writing and listening to the playback of bagpipe music.

I've come to understand from reading various older Musescore 2 posts that certain developers misunderstood the way that bagpipe music is written relative to the sounding pitch. The default which Musescore 3 uses transposes the staff down a major second, which I believe not to be accurate. While it does automatically add in the typical D key signature that people are used to seeing in bagpipe sheet music, it throws off the playback by shifting it that major second.

Please read the link provided at the end for additional information.

I believe it is more accurate to say that either:
- Bagpipe sheet music is not transposed at all, but concert pitch is typically raised to ~A480 (there are A440 chanters that exist as well that people choose to use to play with other instruments)
- Great highland bagpipe sheet music is transposed up approximately a semitone to accommodate the change of A440 to ~Bb, and concert A440 bagpipe is not transposed

The key signature of D is used for bagpipe sheet music not because the instrument plays in D all the time, but because it removes the need to write any accidentals as the instrument only has 9 notes to use.

The original work around I did was the former by removing the transposition, changing the usable pitch range to G4 - A5, then in the synthesizer leaving the pitch at either A440 or A480 for whatever my purposes are, and apply the key signature D. It worked ok for inputting the base notes, but the kicker is that the entire bagpipe embellishments pallet is now shifted on the staff by that major second so each one requires tweaking.

MuseScore automatically adds a key signature when using this transposition feature. If one did want to implement the latter, one has to change the default transposing to shift up by 1 note (not sure between augmented unison and minor second), change the usable pitch range to Ab4 - Bb5, then apply a non-intuitive Eb major key signature in order to have the common D signature. Clicking the concert pitch changes the sheet music into a hot mess of accidentals, though I suppose I can ignore it. A similar issue happens with the bagpipe embellishments pallet. I have yet to play around with this more to see if there are other issues.

Another work around I haven't done is just shift up the playback tuning by 3 semitones or so. It feels unfaithful, but maybe works the best for now. I'm not sure.

It would be nice if future updates could address this disconnect between score and playback. I also know that bagpipes aren't exactly the most popular instrument to write for. As a beginner, it is a super useful feature to not have to switch between computer keyboard and instrument to play and verify my scores.

If there is a feature I have overlooked or if someone could explain how I could better customize my experience, please let me know!
