Quarter note triplets

I am trying to enter quarter note triplets into a score and even though I change the note to a quarter note and then go to "Notes" "Tuplets" and click on it, it always changes it to eighth notes and then puts a quarter note rest in the measure that I cannot delete. Any suggestions?

How to separate hands in a piano score?

I have a piano score with the notes starting in the top stave and running downward...  the notes should at some point move from the top stave to the bottom, but musescore is assigning them all to just the top stave... consequently, I'm getting a million ledger lines between the top and bottom staves...

Is there some way to designate a "splitting point" between the staves, so the notes arent being assigned to the wrong hand?

Thank you!

Mystery mute

Help! I've just imported a midi file and one of the parts (piano) is muted in playback and I can't figure out why. I've looked at the mixer - that's fine. Clicking on the individual notes renders them perfectly ok, there's simply nothing in playback. All the other parts are fine. I've even tried copy/paste the individual line into a fresh blank score and it remains muted; but then adding new notes to that line, no problems - so it doesn't sound like it's a global setting on instrument line. My only thought it could be velocity of the notes is set to zero? Is that a thing in Musescore??

Need instructions on how to create multiple notes on one staff

I'm trying to digitalize an old piece of sheet music of a song which has pretty much disappeared- can't find any recordings of it anywhere, and it's so old it's out of copyright. I'm totally new to MuseScore and cannot figure out for the life of me, no matter how much I google it, how to make something like this:

I'm completely stuck, so if you could give me simple instructions, I'd be very grateful! Thank you!

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

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
Sylvain

Beaming

I'm trying to write something in 7/8 time, with grouping of 2, 2, and 3.
It will only allow me to do 3, 2, 2.  
In the past I've successfully used beam properties from the master palette, but now it doesn't seem to be working.   Can anyone suggest something?

Wie komme ich wieder direkt, also unter "öffnen"  zu meinen musescore dateien?

Stop time in playback possible?

I'm trying to arrange a section with stop time. Print is fine as I just use staff text. That doesn't effect playback though.

I can approximate it in playback by selecting the entire section and adding staccato to all the notes. It's close enough that I can live with it, but then I need separate files, one for print and one for playback

I've searched the handbook, tried the inspector with everything I can think of currently. I can live with the workaround, I'd rather do it right, if it's possible.

Help with bars per line please

I'm in the process of learning MuseScore, and will then migrate over, with Finale stopping further suppport for their PrintMusic.
I've exported a score from PrintMusic as mxml, and successfully imported into MuseScore. However, I can't match the original score bars per line. I've found the Layout/Increase or decrease layout stretch, but in the score I have it limits to 7 bars and no further, yet my original that I want to match has 8 bars per line.
Any ideas that I'm missing?

Mixer property solo and export to mp3 not working

Hi,

I upgraded to 

OS: Windows , Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (32-bit): 2.3.1, revision: github-musescore-musescore-0899e9d

and found that marking a voice as "solo" in mixer does not affect export to mp3. When muting other voices the export works as expected.

As a choir conductor, I'm using MuseScore to produce rehersal mp3 files for the singers. Since version "ancient", I've been using the 'solo' property in mixer to separate e.g. tenord from sopranos, altos and basses. To my surprise, this was not working anymore in the new version. I.e. to extract the tenor voice, I had to put mute on soprano, alto and bass. 

In playback, the 'solo' property is working correctly.

Is this a bug or an intended feature?

Time Signature beaming question

I'm trying to make a 6/16 time signature act as a compound meter with the beaming.  I go to the master palette for time signatures and adjust the beaming but when entering notes into the staff, the beaming is ignored and goes to the "default" of one beam per measure.  Is there something I'm missing?

Note Input Question - newbie (sorry)

Using MuseScore on my Mac.  Note input, for piano.  treble clef, trying to input two 1/8 notes and one 1/4 note to play at the same time.  I can get the two 1/8 notes to display on top of each other, but when I go to insert the 1/4 note, it pushes the 1/8 notes to the right.  Help?

Changing the score template

I arranged a song I wrote in SATB open.  Now, I'd like to resave it as SATB close.  Is it possible to change the score template?  I couldn't find the answer in the handbook and I'm reluctant to 'start over' with the SATB close template.

How to reassign notes to voices

I scanned in a pdf to the Musescore website and Audiveris created a remarkably accurate with the exception of the first measure of each system and several random other locations.  When I tried to make corrections I found that changing a note often created very weird additional rests and moved other notes at random.  The problem was that notes had been assigned different voices in patterns that didn't make sense musically,  I tried changing individual notes to different voice, and tried changing everything to one voice.   I tried following the help directions and several other suggestions but nothing would allow me to change notes to different or a single voice.   (my version was 2.0.3).
Any help would be appreciated.  If this is not possible, I'll move this to the Improvements Forum.

AKAI keyboard not being recognised

Hi, I decided to get a keyboard (AKAI LPK25) as am hoping it will speed things up. Reading up on it it appeared to be compatible with MuseScore and my PC software (I'm running Windows 8.1). It says no driver is needed and I've loaded the editor software but can't see the keyboard as an option on the I/0 tab, there is nothing at all on the dropdown for MIDI Input.  Port Audio is ticked.  Anyone else had problems with this?

Adding another staff

Is it possible to add a new staff to an already existing score? I have a piano /vocal score completed but I'd like to add a separate string line to the last few measures.I've tried to add it as a guide cue line in the piano part using another voice and reducing the size of the notes but it's still  too cluttered. Thanks.

Trouble playing individual parts since installing MuseScore 2.3.1

Anyone else having trouble playing the individual parts since upgrading Musescore?  I've been revising and playing scores for months with no trouble.  Now, however, when I try to adjust the volumes on the individual parts, I get a message saying "The instruments is (sic) only available for scores made with MuseScore 2."  Darn it, they WERE made with MuseScore 2.3.1.  Do they mean me to go back to the old version?  I've tried downloading and reinstalling MuseScore 2 twice, but that doesn't help.  Any ideas?

Musescore 2.3.1 - problems

I tried to install the update and my system crashed twice. I then got the message "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way" and to contact Musescore.  I have tried to access the program by loading existing scores and it manages to do that but then crashes again. I have had to uninstall the update but now cannot access anything Musescore related. Any help anyone?
