Forum Access Through Musescore.com, Musescore on Social Media

Hello!
It's been a while since I've been to musescore.com and its getting so much better. It's very exciting to see it have its own community website, with groups, contests, etc.

However, there is no practical way of accessing the forums through Musescore.com, or just a quicker/more practical way to report bugs in general (as I am constantly finding weirdly specific bugs with every version, the unpracticality of bug reporting threw me off for a while).

I feel there should also be more involvement with other social media. There are plenty of musescore users that rarely visit musescore.com but are always on facebook, instagram, etc, that are not getting updated on contests, musescore itself, etc.  Musescore's Facebook page is fine but the Instagram account is just not very good.

Anyways, here is my input. I hope its helpful! Peace!

Goodbye, Musescore!

(Sorry if this is completely irrelevant to the website.)

Hey, guys, just wanted to notify you all. I have recently found a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) called FL Studio. I have been working on learning it for a few days, and I'm hooked. So, I will be making a Soundcloud account and making FL Studio music to post there and sell on the Unity Asset Store. What this means is: I'm leaving Musescore. My 6-Month journey with you guys has been very fun. But it's time for me to move on. I'm not getting rid of my account, nor am I stopping uploading. I'm just going to be WAY less active. Shoutout to Masked_mudkip105 for introducing me to musescore, and to musescore and the musescore staff for being a huge help! I would not be composing today without you guys. 
So, yeah. Goodbye, everyone, and keep composing! ;)

Can a list of Sets be sorted alphabetically?

With a long list of Sets, the sets seem always to be listed in the order in which the sets were added. But I can't find a way of sorting the Sets list into alphabetical order.

For example, the OpenScore Lieder Corpus now has over 60 Sets, and it's getting very hard to track down the set when you need to add a score to the set:
https://musescore.com/openscore-lieder-corpus/sets?q=openscore-lieder-corpus/sets

Ideally, it would be great to sort the Sets list with an Edit option - in the same way as we can already sort the scores listed within a Set.  And with such a long list of sets, users will certainly need a search filter to narrow down the list - for example, by composer.

Thanks for any improvement!

Choice to make downloading unavailable...

First of all, I absolutely love the fact that musescore.com has been going through a lot of changes recently - it looks more and more professional every time I open up the site, and is also greatly improving in efficiency.

One thing I've been wishing for a while now, however, is that the website might one day develop an option for users to 'ban' downloads on certain scores. Let me explain:

I understand that the main aim of musescore.com is to share sheet music, similar to that of IMSLP or other online music forums. I am in no way suggesting that the download option should be removed, as it is a wonderful tool for people to access sheet music and change it up a bit if they want to, but simply that users get the option if they want their score to be downloadable or not. I think that, if this option was implemented, most of the music people post on the site would still be eligible to download. Arrangements, transcriptions, and pieces under Creative Commons and Attribution copyright licences would still be available to download, and composers of original works with All Rights Reserved could upload their pieces with the safety of knowing that no one could possibly download and use their music without their given permission. I, for one, would happily keep all my arrangements and even some of my smaller compositions that I've whipped up in a day or so available for public downloading, but meanwhile keep the scores for my larger, more time-consuming compositions safely to myself. And, also, if a trustworthy individual wants to access the score for a legitimate reason, the creator of the piece can decide to email the score to that person only. This option would also enable composers to sell their sheet music on other sites for monetary gain, and prevent a lot of the plagiarism that sadly exists on musescore.com.

I really think that this is a worthwhile addition, and I hope you consider it. Besides, there is no possible way anyone could get upset by this feature being implemented, because everyone would have the choice whether they want to use it or not. I suppose, if you wanted, it could be added as a PRO feature only, but personally I think everyone on the site - paying user or non-paying user - should have the option to make their scores completely accessible or not.

"Upload" button and profile drop down menu are moved?

Hey!

I've got some issues with how the website is presented (Windows 8.1/10 Chrome). Look at the red box in these two images: 
1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wsNILfuqQ7-BNXEGJfnB1LzNGe242B_A/view?usp=sharing 
2: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17QilaW41GP8KpIA9s4PM922vNsa4L7lU/view?usp=sharing 

You can see that the "upload" button and the profile drop down menu (and the "Go Pro" button even though it's irrelevant for me) are moved.
Please fix it! Thanks in advance!

All Icons and the pallette are suddenly tiny!! (Win10)

Hi guys,
when I last opened my Musescore, suddenly all the Icons in the top rows were a whole bunch smaller! Now I have trouble hitting them with my touchpen on my convertible laptop... 
Same "shrinking" has happened to the pallette as well. All the Icons there are way smaller, too.
I really need to get them back to the previous larger size to work properly, so any help woul be much appreciated!!
THX, Hagen

How to add a tiny "pre-note" ...I don't know what it's called but I attach ...

Hi.
I'm doing my first ever score for a folk music piece. It's an old favourite I'm trying to digitalize. 
I want to add a small "pre-note" here and there. I have no clue what it's called so I attach an image. It steals kind of no time from the first note...it's just there....very common folk music thing. And now I realize I can't add an attachment...hmmm.
If anyone understands what I'm after please give me a hint :).
I found one exampl at: https://www.google.se/search?q=string+pre+note&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwibgaTZzcnbAhWF1SwKHaW0BmIQ_AUICigB&biw=2048&bih=1076#imgrc=i3OG4a5UHei_LM:
