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.

Create or save edited instrument - string tunings

I am using MuseScore to convert folk tunes in notation to Tenor Banjo tab, adding a banjo tab stave then copying the notation stave to the tab stave - a great facility, very easy and convenient to use.

I have not found a ready made banjo setting that has strings tuned G,D,A,E in the MuseScore instrument list, so I have to edit each string each time I add a banjo tab stave. Can I save my string tuning to MuseScore as a new or edited instrument?

Still a lot of bugs in songbook!

- Transfer of musescore songs via Airdrop does not work as it used to before. As a workaround I have to use a USB-cable and iTunes for transfer of songs from Mac Os to IOS.
- Not all formerly transmitted songs don't shine up in songbook.
- In version 2.1.15 the mixer for switching instruments on or off and adjusting volumes doesn't show up. There is an empty white space.
- Hyphens and Underline in Lyrics look ugly as a bold black bar.

I'm still not able to use songbook in choir rehearsals as I used to do before the last big update was released. I'm very disappointed because I paid money for the features that are vanished now and are not yet reproduced!

Fun challenge: Compose a theme for a thing I'm doing

My friend and I have a Youtube channel and at 100 subs we promised we would start work on a long term project which is a film we call Karate Steve II: The Duke of Overkill. Our channel is comedy so that is what our movie will be. We have a synopsis done and the first couple minutes worth of script. I think it would be fun to have an original theme over some royalty free music off the internet. 

Here's the basic idea for the film: 
Karate Steve has forgotten who he is due to the script for Karate Steve I being misplaced and his mission is to locate the script before the evil Duke of Overkill finds it. He works with Director Mister President of the S.E.A.E.Y.E.A.Y (pronounced C.I.A) to find it.

The idea for the music would be a 70s disco spy thriller. We need a theme that would be able to be placed throughout the film as a motif of the character and his fight against the sinister organization F.A.R.T (the Foundation Association of Redundant Troublemakers.)

If this sounds stupid that's because it is. Were aiming to film and edit this summer and the film should be posted by the end of August or early September.

Here's the link to the video we introduced the character in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6MoR7UwQLU
Skip to 1:00 into the video to see the fake trailer we made for the movie before we knew we were gonna make the movie.
