App hangs and needs to be restarted

I have an ASUS K01B running running Android 5.0.2 (the latest version offered). Until recently the  Musescore app worked smoothly, but recently the app hangs when I try to  changes tempo or metronome settings: the little window cannot be closed and playing resumed. I have to close the app and restart it, after which the new settings are indeed in effect. My wife's new Samsung tablet does not have this problem.
And BTW, I terribly miss the mixer, which would allow me to quickly change the relative volumes of e.g. voice and piano when studying. The new practice setting is not nearly so flexible.

I've been copyright striked

I received an email sent at 8:15am about one of my scores "When You Wish Upon A Star" being taken down for copyright infringement.

To be specific, it is my arrangement of the song for piano from the Disney movie Pinocchio. The licensing under this score is "Attribution" due to the fact that it's my arrangement of the song and I do not want anyone to claim the specific arrangement as their own, not the original song itself. The reason I am bringing up the licensing is because I'm not clear on whether the copyright strike is because of
1) my score is based off a popular song
2) the incorrect licensing
3) or a software glitch (as mentioned by Mike in another discussion post on this forum)
If it's possible, I can always change it to public domain. This is my first time receiving this notice, so I am unaware of what exactly happened. I'm hoping this can be settled and one of the staff members can take away this strike and make my score public again.

Also if anyone can educate me about whether I did the right thing about licensing my score as "Attribution" I'd greatly appreciate it.

Unable to import to MuseScore iOS

After a recent update I'm no longer able to import anything (.mscz files) into the iOS MuseScore App. After one update it removed my entire library I had imported, so I imported a load again. Now I find I can't import anything anymore. This is the same on my iPad as well as my iPhone.

To import, on the Desktop version of MuseScore I type up the music I want & save it into a cloud based location (iCloud Drive) as a .mscz file. I then go to that location on my iPad, tap on the share button & select Copy to MuseScore.
If I do this now, the MuseScore App will flash open, but nothing will happen. When I do this the file should be accessible via Library > SongBook.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? There have been a few more minor updates since, but the issues persists.

If you'd like anymore information regarding this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Adam

Feature Request: Email notification for score Uploads

So I know there is a way to view this already, but this has sort of a twist.

I am following several hundred people, and so my dashboard is crammed with a ton of scores. I'll get about 20-40 notifications per day of people uploading scores, and I often miss the people who I really want to hear from. I was wondering there was a feature that gave a person the option to select email notifications for specific persons that one follows similar to the notification bell on youtube (an option that pops up right after clicking the follow button). It would help me keep up with some of my favorites here.
Thanks!

Looking for Collaboration

Hello everyone, 

I am currently a battery and front ensemble writer, with an emphasis on battery, who is searching for someone who may be in need of one. I'm looking into collaborating with a front ensemble/wind writer to create indoor or marching shows respectively. This can be done for the sole purpose of improving writing/arranging skills or for serious projects, of which is completely welcomed. 

I also have access to Sibelius, if there are any users who would like to use an alternative notating software. 

If interested, feel free to contact me :-)

New Score Navigation Bar Obscures Score On Mobile Devices

The new score navigation bar on the bottom of the score--it has a pip for each page and arrows on both ends, and it is just above the play/audio source/etc. bar--obscures the bottom of the score on mobile devices (at least Chrome on my Android smartphone), to the point where I cannot read the bottom staff and often part of the top staff of the bottom line of a grand staff score. I am unable to eliminate or move this new score navigation bar so I can read more of the music.

Android MuseScore app fails to open MuseScore files

 
The MuseScore app (with the integrated Songbook functionality) fails to open MuseScore files (e.g. on the file system or as e-mail attachments). The MuseScore app is simply not suggested as an app to open a .mscz file with.

Any other users having issues with this?

The good old MuseScore Songbook app (not available anymore for new users) doesn't have any problems with that on my Android devices.

How to Delete Extra Rest?

Hello.
I have an extra rest in a measure - it actually make the measure longer than what is specified in the time signature. How do I delete it? I can select it but none of the usual removal commands work. If I use "Control-Delete" the rest of the score is deleted.
Help will be appreciate.
I'm new to the software - it looks cool so far!
Thanks.
