Stupid question

Hi everybody, I'm doing a big band arrangement, and have got my head round most of the MuseScore features I need. But what I would like to do, and I'm sure it must be possible, is find a way to insert the same text in every instrument's part for a given bar. eg 'cadenza'. At the moment I use the chord notation function - cntrl K - and repeat for every part. But I'm sure there must be a way to input the text once only, and have it appear in every part. What am I missing? 

Chords Over Rests

I recently downloaded the latest version. I was enjoying a lot of the new features, but one thing I found to be INCREDIBLY irritating.

Let's say there are 2 eighth rests next to each other and I want to put a chord over each one. The chords do NOT snap into place and the rests do NOT move in order to accommodate the chord. Instead the chords stack on top of one another. The same thing happens if I want to put a chord over a rest and there is a NOTE next to it that I want to put a chord over. 

This does not happen when the chords are placed over notes, but it does happen whenever I put a chord over a rest. It is only a problem when I want to put more than one chord in a measure, but I do this fairly frequently.

Anyone have a fix? Thanks! 

XML-File for PianoMarvel

I try to practice piano with the Piano Marvel program.

The program needs XML files.

What I have done

- I created a file in Musicsore
- I put the fingerings over the notes
- I export the file as * .musicxml and * .mxl

Problem in "Pianomarvel"

- The fingerings are not directly above the notes.
- The fingerings are above the staff line.
   (The stems cover the fingerings)
- The fingerings for the proposal notes are missing.

- I exported the mxl and musicxml after"Final Notepad"
- In Finale Notepad I saved this again as an xml file.

Result in "PianoMarvel":
- The fingerings are correctly above the note OK.
- The fingerings of the proposal notes are missing.

I would be grateful for any help.

Correcting instruments metadata


Is there a way to use a different sound for playback without changing the effective instrument metadata that gets uploaded to For example, this score is for voice and piano:

but because I changed the sound for the Voice instrument to Oboe (in the Mixer), says the piece is for Oboe and Piano. Since I much prefer the sound of other instruments to the synthesized voice sounds, I'd like to keep using this feature. But I also want to list the piece as being for Voice and Piano (and not for Oboe or whatever alternative sound I choose). Is there a way to do this?

Thank you!


I know this isnt the right place to ask this but im too scared to use the support thing :c

I am considering buying pro via the mobile app (aka with google play credit). However, I am a beta tester for the app, so I've been given pro status only for the app. This means that the prompt to buy pro will not appear, which means I probably have to leave the beta to get pro. I want to buy pro while staying a beta tester. Is there a way to do this? Or do I have to wait until there is no longer beta testing? Thanks for all the help ^^

Play uploaded scores with soundfonts from the score itself.

Most, if not all of my scores use an edited soundfont of my own (LCR.sf2). This soundfont is saved to all scores and they all play great in my computer. When I uploaded one of them, it played awfully, from the uploaded score copy. Obviously because of the lack of my sf2 file in the uploaded content. Now, I thought that when uploading a score with an in-saved (embedded?) soundfont, that would be honored by the playing engine of the site. Well, apparently, not so. Am I doing anything wrong here? I realise that adding a full soundfont to a score file might be too much. But then no one will be able to hear the score the way it is supposed to sound! Is there a practical way out of this? Thanks for any comment on this subject.

Musescore app freeze on loading songbook

I have had a problem on my Android tablet with a freeze when switching to the songbook tab. The song count started, got to the end but stayed there without opening the songbook. I was not pleased after adding 190 songs to the songbook to find I had to start over as there was no way to unfreeze the stalled songbook loading. I'm beginning to think that this new Musescore app is a disaster
