New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.

Give it a try by simply clicking on the Piano Roll icon now available on all solo piano scores. Be sure to tell us what you think in Improving MuseScore.com!



All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

Can’t Log In and Page Not Found

Sometimes when I try and log in, it doesn’t work, my username and password is correct and everything, but the ‘log in’ button is grey instead of blue so I can’t log in. I try closing the tab and re opening the website but it doesn’t work.

Also, when I search up a song, sometimes it says that the page is not found and when I try refreshing or going back it still says that the page is not found. I know that the song definitely exists as I have searched it up before. Closing and reopening the tab also doesn’t work.

Can’t edit discussions with my iPhone

I’ve never been able to do this on my phone, but it’s gotten to the point where I’m irritated with it.
Is it just a glitch? Because whenever I hit the “edit” to edit a discussion I made, nothing happens. Just, nothing happens at all. I can do it just fine on my computer, but with my phone, it just does nothing. If it’s just like that for phones, can we please be able to edit discussions with a phone?

Score download option "MusicXML" creates uncompressed xml file w. extension ".mxl"

I realized today that, when I download a file from another user and select Music XML as download option, I don't get the compressed file but the uncompressed XML, but the file still has the extension ".mxl".  The difference is obvious from the file size, too.
I remember that in the past, when using this download format, I got a compressed musicxml file which I could open without problems in MuseScore 2.3.2. The last time I did this was on Jan. 5 this year, so I'm not sure when this was actually changed.
Now, when I download using "MusicXML" option and I try to open the downloaded mxl  file in Musescore 2.3.2, I get an error message:   
"Kann Datei  [my file name].mxl nicht lesen: ungeeignetes Format"
(Can't open [my file name].mxl: unsuitable format )
And the details say there was an error when reading Container.xml in line 1, column 1: unexpected end of file.  

After I found out that I could see the xml when opening the downloaded file in Internet Explorer or text editor (which wasn't possible in the past), I tried and renamed the downloaded files' extensions from ".mxl" into ".xml", or ".musicxml",  and both could be opened.

I just wonder why this was changed, because the compressed xml is so much smaller. Wouldn't it be possible at least to offer both the compressed and the uncompressed version?  
I posted this here because it seems to be a download issue on the website.

- Update: When I download an older score with the MusicXML option, I get the compressed xml. Does it make a difference when the file was stored online?

Pitch adjustments lost when exporting to .mid

Hi,

I would like to be able to adjust the pitch of certain notes in a MuseScore file in a way that survives the conversion to midi. So far I have been making the changes in the inspector pane, under note properties, and they haven't been making it into the midi files. I have discovered the export RPNs option in preferences, but even with that checked the pitch adjustments don't make it through. I am wondering whether there is some other way to make the adjustment within MuseScore that might be recognised as midi, or some other export option somewhere (I am using MS3). I'd be grateful for any pointers.

Harmony

Since Musescore already has note entry and playback, are there any ideas in the works to create a full harmony tutor in musescore by mens of question and answer check.
Basically go through all the uk gradelevels and 1st year uni.

Otherwise:
It is impossible to find anything on the Musescore site. It is the most confusing usergroup I ever came accross. Even impossible to find links to my old posts or find groups unless I search for my avatar which is about the only way to find them.
