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.

Importing MIDI File to MuseScore

I created a MIDI file of a composition and very meticulously quantized it to the nearest eighth note (the music is not complicated, and eighth note quantizing is sufficient). I can see very clearly that the first beat of every measure is exactly on the downbeat. But for some reason, when I import it into a new MuseScore file, set up with the proper time signature (3/4), although it recognizes the correct tempo (120BPM), parts of the song notate as they should while others want to start on the sixteenth earlier than they should, creating a weird series of sixteenth to dotted eighth ties. And it's not a cumulative alignment issue either, because the beginning and the end of the song are fine... but for some reason, a portion of the interior of the song is aligned improperly. Incidentally, I selected the import option of eighth notes. but to no avail.

Did my file disappear?

So there's a song that's my pride and joy that I worked on for countless nights just a few months ago. I think the name saved as sc(some numbers) for whatever reason, if that's relevant. I've shown it to my friends and tweaked it countless times, and I've saved every time. 

However, my 'Open Recent' was cleared for some reason, so I went, today, to show this song to a friend by finding it in my files manually. However, I went through and both of my 'sc(numbers)' songs were gone. 

Could one other song have been corrupted/saved over? Is it possible that musescore/my computer just ate my file? Thanks.

Musescore continually crashes on Linux Mint 18.2

Earlier today I installed musescore on the above system. I installed both the installed version and the portable version (Appimage). In either case, after I double-click on the icon, I get a momentary flash of the splashscreen, and then it crashes. Here's the log file of the attempted starts of both versions: Any help would be appreciated.

How to replace an instrument in a completed composition.

This is my first post in this community much less this forum. I hope I am in the right place...
I have an oboe that ended up sounding more like an organ and I want to "simply" change it to a clearer and more articulate sound.  Is there a way to do it without starting over or do the copy and paste routine from the oboe parts to a new instrument?
Help please?  (My biggest "fear" is that the answer is already staring at me right in the eyes in the Manual or on the screen)
Thanks.

Unwanted dynamics copied into score

Hello - can someone help -
I often copy bits from, what were, downloaded midi files into my scores. Even when I have tried to avoid copying dynamics with the selection filter there are persistent changes in played back dynamics in the copied section that I can't get rid of??

Thanks

Requesting scores

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to request the scores of a given tune?
For example, currently I would like to have scores of a simple tune from Snowpiercer movie, called Yona's Theme (Marco Beltrami). It is for violin, and is rather simple.

Thank you.
Regards.

Anybody know?

Hello, I'm working on a piece, but it requires an instrument to play ONLY during the second time of a repeat. Does anyone know how to do that, or is it not possible on Musescore?

Enthisiast of MuseScore 1.3, can't run MuseScore 2.0.2

Hi,
my name is Gianni (Italy) and I write music as amateur. I have long looked for a program LIKE MuseScore, but I didn't imagine that could be complete AS MuseScore. With MS 1.3 I have started to write down some of my songs, but I needed to have notes and tab on the same sheet.
Thomas Bonte suggested me to download the 2.0.2 version. I download it regularly, but it does not open: when I do double click, nothing happens.
Anyone knows about problems with Vista Professional (my operating system)?
Thank you very much. Gianni

Score Stealer - Beware

Guys, please beware that one of your members named "Arc Trooper" steals transcriptions without credit to the transcriber and only to the original composer, I was the first one to transcribe the song
"Heart of Courage" by Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix.

[Originally Transcribed By:] https://musescore.com/user/183212/scores/2301976

Then he took this score and added some parts that is'nt and Should NOT
be in the score.
PLUS+++++
He removed valuable information that the orchestra must know of before even practicing the piece itself.

Trying to add a note without replacing the existing one? thus moving the whole piece one beat forward?

I'm new to musescore, and I'm having a little bit of trouble!

You know how if you are using a text software, if you have "tab" activated, typing deletes the following letter and replaces it with whatever you're typing?

I was putting notes in, and I forgot one, my question is if there is any way for me to add it in the way one would if tab was not activated? As in, adding a note and moving the whole thing forward?

Super appreciative of any help! Thanks!
