More issues with the iOS version : interacting, transposing, housekeeping, transferring.

A few comments / complaints about the iOS version of Musescore and Songbook.

1) Current versions of both iOS and the app.
2) While working in an ensemble, an attempt was made to transpose a piece while not connected to the internet. The app crashed hard - taking with it the piece being worked on. Completely gone. All others seem unaffected. I suspect that the app attempted to check to see if I had paid for it as I was attempting to do something that was covered only in the Pro version.
3) Taking a cue from the Adobe Reader app and how it interacts with iTunes, I opened the program space ( namespace? ) of the app on the iPad to see what I could discern.

a) recent upgrades have not done a thing about housekeeping, as there were thumbnails of scores long ago deleted still present. Furthermore there are databases that date to two years ago and are no longer being used, updated, nor deleted.
b) because of how iOS handles program space ( namespace ), even though I can add an .mscz file to the namespace, the app does not know how to handle it’s presence.

What we are going to do as soon as the next “update” is available is delete the entire program from the iPad, then install the newest version. 

I get that you want to make some revenue off of this application, but if you call something Pro, then it needs to act like it.

Being able to move files directly from desktop/laptop to the iOS application space would solve a whole lot of users problems ( after reading through the recent complaints ). Using Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud is great, but when you have a venue that is out of internet reach, it does no one any good.
Proper housekeeping is essential.
Allow rollback to prior version is only a wise choice. I have two iPads, my wife’s Pro which is up to date and having all of the issues and mine, which is not up to date and has no issues, nor is it “Pro”. If there were a way to Backup my version and re-install it on her machine, I’d do it in a heartbeat.

Fix this. Next comment will be on the review page on the iTunes store.

Play all or playlist

I would love to have a player implemented, where you can just hit play and it playes all music (just the mp3s) of a search or whats on new or piano,etc. It would be a very relaxing and uncomplicated way to listen and discover scores. At the moment I would love to listen to  the music here on musescore, but you always have to search, open play, back, search, open ... It's a waste of time and effort, when it could be  so much easier.

Import PDF failure (bunch of symbols)

 There is a problem with the PDF conversion (Windows, and Firefox here). Reported here too: 
https://musescore.org/fr/node/278734  
When the conversion is finished and when clicking (left-click) on  "Download", it opens on a bunch of unusable symbols. 
See: https://musescore.org/fr/node/278734#comment-871010

 Currently, the workaround is to do: right-click on "Download" -> "Save the link target as..." -> Save.
 

Please make this song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpGF6otM1Q It's called Breadfan and our band loves the song so much that our band teacher, he errrr banned (or band, if i wanted to be punny) the song. So he took away the song from us and we don't have the music for it. Some of the best players remember it, but most forgot. So it would be appreciated if someone could bring our lovely breadfan back to us so we can be happy yet again because we hate our band teacher and vice versa and we want our breadfan back.

Notifications not working?

This might be just me, but when the notifications system was first introduced, I got notified for likes, comments, followers, etc... but now I'm not getting anything? It seems to just be kind of random, like pick and choose. I tried looking into the settings but there's not much there that would affect it. Any ideas?

And it's not a big problem, I actually really like the new system.

How to max-out MuseScore for Music Engraving

(This is mostly layout-based)
Just seeing behind-the-scenes videos on pit orchestras in the world of musical theater, I always wanted to do what the professionals do in their layout of the parts distributed among the players. I've done my first run on the making a custom layout of a score and it's parts. (ALL OF THE THINGS INSIDE THE FILE ARE 100% MUSESCORE MADE) Feel free to inspect everything I've done and compare it to the default settings.
