Dashboard de-duplication


Today I see a ton of duplicate posts on my dashboard that I've never seen before. They are basically the same score posted to a lot of groups. I assume that has had some way to limit the duplicates on our dashboard before (I usually see 2-3 consecutive duplicates, but today it's like 10+). Any unintentional changes?

Adding an instrument after the beginning of a score

Hi !
I'm trying to tranform a song I want my pupils to learn into a score. But for the life of me, I just seem unable to find a way to insert a second instrument (which will be a voice) under my previous instrument.
I tried to find some instructions in the handbook (which I just buy) but I'm unable to find something useful.
If someone coud point me towards the right menu or key, that would be great !
Thank you in advance

A possible awful lurking problem - crash+start center.


I had a crash (win10) just after I had added a few lines to my previously saved score.
When rebooted, Musescore offered to recover my score after crash. I did open it, it had 2 missing bars but it was all right as expected.

I spent about 5 hours and added some 5 pages.. hard and tedious work. Then saved, exported it to pdf, uploaded both to my drive. All good and safe.
Closed Musescore, left the PC running. Went to sleep.
Opened the score next day from the "start centre" window.
Now it had only the lines left that were there BEFORE the crash the day before.
The save file was ok - when opened from the explorer.
If I only had changed the title or something, I could have saved the old file over the correct one. Hence "lurking" problem...

To confirm this behaviour, I should test it with unplugging my computer...but don't want to do that really:) So just in case, check this out yourself.

Have a nice day,

How to add this type of note?

Hi there!

I'm trying to digitise a hymn by entering the music into MuseScore, but I've come unstuck with this type of hovering note (I don't know it's proper name!):

The note circled in red on the left is what I'm trying to add, the notes on the right is what I've already entered.

I'm sure it's just a case of pressing another button before adding the extra notes, but I've not managed to find that button yet, despite lots of fiddling!

Many thanks for your help  :-)

saisie midi

Bonjour à tous j'ai installé musescore il n'y a pas longtemps et j'ai commencé aujourd'hui la saisie MIDI. Je pensais que lorsque l'on jouait sur notre clavier Midi une mélodie, les notes de celle-ci s'affichaient sur la partition. Or, je me suis rendu compte que le logiciel n'affichait que la hauteur des notes et qui fallait régler la durée manuellement.Savez-vous si il existe une autre manière de le faire ?
Merci d'avance
