Um, an extra upload? What??

As you probably know now, I am using Windows 10 and Mozilla Firefox as my OS and browser. I also have a free account. But the thing at the top of my scores page which would usually say something along the lines of "You can't upload any more visible scores unless you go pro" actually says this: 

You can still upload 1 of 5 visible scores

My reaction to that was like:

What? I already have 5 scores uploaded, Does my Rondo a Capriccio harmonic analysis somehow not count because it is Public Domain and is approved to be Public Domain? This is weird.

Here is what my Rondo a Capriccio harmonic analysis page looks like:

Nothing above the score title saying that it is published to the website.

And now compare that to this arrangement of Mozart's Piano Sonata in C minor:

It says, when I look at it anyway, that the score has been published to the website, which means it is waiting approval for Public Domain.

But yeah, why is it saying that I can still upload 1 of 5 scores when I already have 5 scores uploaded?


Thanks to all the new members for joining our banana party. There seem to be quite a few 'banana' composers here at musescore, whether ithe music is about the fruit banana or banana fish or banana fairies or whatever or if the music is just plain banana silly. Post your music, tell your friends. I even heard that some higher up in the government was thinking of joining since they have lots of experience in being completely bananas.

Adaptations for visually impaired users

Background to this request: I spend a lot (really a lot) of time entering notation to musescore in order to create modified notation that is accessible to my pupil who has a visual impairment and this has been very successful (thanks muse score!) but is very time-consuming. I have saved the settings for the sizings and spacings of the stave and text but would like to be able to:

1. Set up as default a customised system of coloured note heads so that every time I enter a C it comes up as red, D as brown etc. (Currently I have to select all the Cs and change colour via the inspector tool for ever note of music I enter in every piece).

2. A sophisticated scanning option for sheet music (I have tried the scanning PDF option with varied success) so that any standard notation can be converted to an editable form to which I can then apply custom settings that make the notation accessible for my pupil.

Grace notes as chords when applied to notes in a chord - how?

How can you add a grace note to each note in a chord and make them share their stem? For example, if you have a simple chord such as CE (do-mi) in a single voice, you can select it and add a grace note, but the grace notes appear sequentially (i.e. as C followed by E), not as a chord CE. The same happens if you add a grace note to each note of the chord individually. Is there a way to make them share their stem so they also appear as chords?

Where is the help?

Have just joined this group, browsed first 7 pages and none of the questions have any responses. So where does a person find answers? Am I missing something? I am off to another site now that deals with improving MS3. I find it much less convenient than MS2 and dont want to have to use it. So there. Good luck all...

Existing and Newly-uploaded original-compositions now locked into 'Unlisted' category ...

I appreciate the current rule-changes made necessary by copyright and licensing issues. However I do *not* understand why since yesterday, just one of my five existing, completely original-work pieces, uploaded as 'All Rights Reserved' (to myself), has now been made "Unlisted"; nor why a sixth piece uploaded just now in the usual way (via 'Save Online') has also become 'locked' immovably into the Unlisted category? The 'make score public' menu option on Score Manager appears to respond - but there is no actual change of status. And the two affected scores don't even show in my Profile Page as-viewed privately by me, when logged-on!  
Please - Staff or fellow MuseScorers - what do I need to do these days to make (and to keep) straightforwardly *original* work lawfully 'public' on this site ?
EDIT, Aug 30: @DmitriyPopov - Thank you for responding! - today I found that an edited version of yesterday's upload (now with a footnote added to the score) did upload correctly to 'Public' status. However my older, formerly public score (5653474) is still 'stuck' as 'Unlisted' - I'd be most grateful if this could be restored to view again, please ... 

despising Musecore 3

There are days when I absolutely hate Musescore 3. Sure, it is nice that things get automatically spaced in the score so nothing overlaps, so wow gee wiz, uh, isn't that just how it should be? What I hate is that they seem to have gone out of their way to make things more difficult compared with Musescore 2. They seem to have randomly changed things that didn't need changing just to make it frustrating for the use. It used to be easy to change the volume of a single note or chord in a score. But now, once I finally figure out how to do it, Musescore manages to hide it from me so then I have to start all over trying to find out how to do it again. Why!!!? It used to be easy to see the note in inspector and then modify the volume, but now, where the blazing biscuits is it?? And why is it impossible to find in the manual? Ultimately, there is no advantage to Musescore 3 other than the spacing thing. So, I should do everything in Musescore 2 and then when it is ready to be put online, open it with Musescore 3. Just be sure to give it a different name because once you open it in Musescore 3, they won't let you go back to Musescore 2. Oh, no. Why would they make it **&&**& easy?!!!!! And I paid good money for this kind of frustration????????!
