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.


(Video captured from https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/33715 )

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 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?

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.

Liking Your Own Posts?

I found just now that I was able to like my own post on a Musescore.com discussion. On other websites I frequent that give users the ability to like posts, I do not see that functionality, probably for integrity and honour reasons.

Anyone else believe that removing the ability to like your own posts on this website should be done?

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.

My friend is locked out, so can't write here.

My friend Gertim (@SDG) seems to be locked out of the site, so much so that he can't access other people's scores let alone log in for his own or use forums or contact forms (and email here is routinely unresponsive).  He recently un-followed a very large number of people (nothing wrong with that) and fears he triggered a spam filter. He is at his wit's end. please contact him and or me, thanks.

Disable "Automatic Placement" in Send to YouTube feature.

Not only that, the the texts, pedals, ornaments, etc. are really big even though I made it small. It's really big compared to previous versions.
I tried directing readers of how you should play or maybe sometimes I'll put an arrow in the sheet. But it fades in with the notes make it hard to read.
Example : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1axC2_aAQw

Yes, I'm demanding people who actually want to play this to use their Left Toe.

[New Feature] Email and desktop notifications and notifications settings

A few weeks ago we launched the Notifications system on MuseScore.com. We’ve been reading your positive feedback, and we’re glad you’re appreciating the new feature!

Today we’re delivering another update to the Notifications system, in three parts:

1. Notifications settings. Now you can configure what types of notifications you want to see. You can access your notifications settings from your Settings Menu or the Notification Panel. You can choose any kind of Notification and choose where you want to receive it: on the website, email or web pushes. 

2. Desktop Push Notifications. Now you can subscribe to receive Notifications via Desktop Push. It makes sure you don’t miss new notifications, even if you don’t have MuseScore.com open.

3. Email Notifications. We will send you notifications once per hour ONLY if you don’t open the Notifications panel on the website. We'll launch Email Notifications in 2 days; but for now, simply use the readily available Notifications Settings.

Enjoy the new settings! I'm looking forward to seeing how this impacts your experience with the website.

Request to add Sort by Title to Sheet Music page on MuseScore site

Not sure if this is the right place for this - but when I share a link to a list of my music, I use the "Sheet Music" subpage under My Profile since I can share to those without MuseScore accounts.  However, I want the music displayed in alphabetical order (which is an option on the "My Scores" page).  Already there exist the options to sort by Upload Date, Comment Count, and View Count.

I would love to be able to sort by title and send the link (with the sort filter applied and in the URL), similar to the My Scores page.  For example, I can sort by title there and then the URL appears as - https://musescore.com/my-scores?private=All&combine=&sort_by=title&sort_order=ASC&items_per_page=10

It would be great to have a similar functionality in the Sheet Music subpage.

Thanks!
Bryan

[New Feature] Personal Messages

Hello everyone!

We’ve got something new for you 🙂.

Prior to today, when someone wanted to write a personal message to another user there was only one option: to send him an email from the Feedback Form. This wasn’t the best option, as some people didn't want to receive email messages, it was difficult to reply, etc.

Today we’re releasing an easier way to communicate with other users: sending personal messages through My Chats.

You’ll see a new section of the User Menu called “My Chats.”


When you send a message to any user, a new chat will be created and you will be notified. My Chats is the place where you can find all your conversations with other users.

As for other notifications you can turn off this type of messages for every channel.

I sincerely hope this is a useful addition to MuseScore.com

As always, we welcome your constructive feedback!

Reporting Comments

I know you can mark a comment a spam, but i think you should be able to report comments.
For example I came across a very offensive comment, I wanted to do something about it but it wasn't spam, and I didn't want to block them because I doubt they would go around writhing hurtful comments on my scores.

Trouble with Playing a score from a certain point.

Hey! So this has been happening to me for a while now, but whenever I go to listen to a certain measure on some of my scores (or anyone else's scores), it'll just play the entire score over again. I can't skip, or press the score of this will just repeat. Is this happening to anyone else? And can this be fixed? Thanks! MuseScore is awesome!

Allow PDF import to MusicXML in addition to MuseScore 3

The Import PDF feature since that produces MuseScore 3 .mscz files. Users who cannot upgrade to MuseScore 3, but are stuck on 2.3.2 (by choice or because their macOS or Windows is no longer supported), can no longer use this feature.

Suggestion: that the import site offers import to MusicXML in addition to MuseScore 3 or as a replacement to MuseScore 3, which would make the import feature usable to the above pre-MuseScore 3 users and to other non-MuseScore users.
