[h]Resize Notes to fit to page iOS[/h]
• Feb 23, 2019 - 10:52
All files I download or create on my mac and view in my iOS device need to be resized to be useful. Is there a way to save the file so it displays like you resized it so you dont have to do it every time. I want to use this app in a Jam setting and I must be able to pull the tune up quickly and transpose it quickly. If I have to resize to see the part it just takes too long to hit the plus sign to get it readable.

not sure what you mean by reflow but everytime you close a file and reopen it it is very small and most of the time it is only a few staffs if it is a lead sheet
Beïng Pro (€49-/year) I still have free access to the iPad app (ca €39,-/year). But this is since I bought the iPad app (version 1.13) previously. My question is does a new Pro membership include the a iPad membership (or v.v.) or does you have to pay for both?
Using MuseScore 2.1.9 on my Iphone 5SE : Playing a long score file attached but also included in the 5 scores of "my score", I try to create a loop. All is OK when it concerns the first part of the score but if the loop start near the end of the score it is impossible to create the loop ; the starting point became the last point.
I think it is a bug, pleace check this event.
First, I have only just heard about MuseScore and downloaded to my Mac. Awesome! I have searched GitHub and the forums a bit, but I haven't found an answer to my question. I'm sorry if this newbie post is addressed elsewhere.
I have experience as developer of iOS iPhone and iPad apps. I could not find an open source repository for the iOS code or how to help with the development. Please help me understand how to help with the mobile development effort. Thanks.
SInce FEB 7, 2019 On IOS devices (IPAD & IPHONE) Playback unexpectedly jumps to start, pause, play and page selector not working. Tested on many devices: same result. Tested on a lot of private sheet music: same result. Tested on random sheet music in the Community: same result.

Dmitriy Popov, thank you for clarifying that relaunching Songbook is possible, though difficult. There is a balance between the difficulties for the Musescore team and the very real difficulties of customers having their work deleted and their daily activities brought to a halt.
This raises the question: How can users persuade the Musescore team to provide the Songbook app until the Musescore app 2.x is completely fixed?
The “upgrade” from Songbook 1.13 to MuseScore app 2.x seems to be a forced migration rather than an upgrade. The MuseScore app 2.x is not so much about customer satisfaction, but primarily about removing features and thereby locking Musescore app users to Musescore.com. The Musescore team stated May 7th that important Songbook functions would be removed in the new Musescore app. Customers were not warned about this, nor about the risk of losing files, an issue that was flagged middle of May.
Some suggestions on how to make it worthwhile for the Musescore team take care of their customers by providing Songbook till crucial flaws are adressed:
Money is always important
- The Songbook app was underpriced. Relaunch it with a $10 price tag
- Help Musescore innovate differentiate paid features for Musescore app 2.x (in app purchases) and Musescore.com
- Increase donations for Musescore Desktop development for example by users approaching governmental agencies as a tool for preserving music, language and cultural traditions.
- Improve the Musescore.com library making a yearly subscription worthwhile, like a mailing list when a group of scores is updated (mail or message “You have an updated score in group x”). Also reviews and ratings making it fun and easy to find new music
- Facilitate the selling/renting of scores through MuseScore.com i.e. becoming the MuseScore.com - the Spotify of digital music scores.
- Customer satisfaction?
Previous Songbook evangelists are now looking at alternative software for reading Musescore files (which are XML).
- User poll?
- Good relations with App Stores?
The “upgrade” from Songbook 1.13 to MuseScore app 2.x was more like a forced migration. The new features are not so much about customer satisfaction, but primarily about removing features and thereby locking Musescore app users to Musescore.com. The Musescore team stated May 7th that important Songbook functions would be removed in the new Musescore app. Customers were not warned about this, nor about the risk of losing files, an issue that was flagged middle of May.
A concerted approach to Google Play, iTunes App Store and Kindle App Store might help the Musescore team realize the gravity of the situation. The downside may be that the Musescore app could be banned from the app stores since the forced migration, deleting files without warning and removing features customers paid for, can be considered dubious business practice and may infringe the app store contract.
Suggestions for regarding a Songbook relaunch are welcome here and in http://bit.ly/Musescore_app_FAQ
I am looking forward to how Musescore can take better care of their customers.

I have created a drums score which incorporates pictograms of the different elements as noteheads (this is for a child with autism who needs explicit visual cues). I have added those symbols (from bitmap pictures) to my custom palette and pasted them over the original noteheads, which I've turned invisible.
While this works fine in the desktop app and on the website, the symbols do not show in the iOS app that the child uses on his iPad — only the stems.
Screenshots are available here :
Is there anything that can be done about that ?
Thanks in advance.
The only way I know that there is a new Musescore "update" at my iOS 12.... (presently 12.1.1) is because I know it from my iOS 10.1.3 at my old iPad. At the new iPad I never!!! did get any update. So the only way to test the new update it is by deleting Musescore and downloading it again from iCloud. (Remember I don't update my old iPad to keep my precious version 1.13 alive). Then the new update will be installed but then also all Songbook data is lost again which unacceptable anyway. Latest Musescore version 2.1.10-15 jan.
In a yellow bar it tells me: "It seems something's wrong with your email as we couldn't send you an important notification, update your email address."
What is this for B...? I don't want to change my email address nor my password for many reasons ( for the time beïng). Everybody else has no problem, so please just delete that message!!
Score play well on MacBook, but pauses in certain measures or doesn't pause when needed on iPhone or iPad

I bought an iPad and installed the Musescore App 2.1.1. And I wonder, like others, what the point of this app is. Everything it offers you can get via the web interface in much better quality. And the big feature, the songbook doesn't reproduce pictures that you have integrated into your scores as an eye catcher or to support the message of the song. Instead, the font for the lyrics is displayed quite differently, which means that all hyphens are shifted in word separations by half a line.
Change the volume of the instruments? No way! Doesn't work for me. The only thing that works is to mute or solo. And why can't you edit your scores with this app?
As it is, the only advantage is to play songs offline on the iPad. Since you are online most of the time anyway, the web interface offers much better possibilities.
With the new update V.2.1.5 (17 dec. 2018) I need to accept payïng first again for a yearly subscription while I'm already Pro user. Previously I could choose for directly login. Again this update was not present in my 12.1 iOS but in my 10.3 iOS (which I never update carefully preserving my V.1.13). You really cannot expect me payïng again before I can open the app. Additionally I don't want to accept an automatic yearly subscription for an app which is untill now completely useless for me. I really will help testing new updates but not if this every time is new dissapointement. You need to solve this first.
Sorry guys but I don’t know what this developers are doing with this app. Since the last update I have a lot of trouble with the network. Further, after deleting and reinstalling all the sheet music which where stored in the songbook are gone, which means that I have to download them one by one again.
Also the rendering of the sheet music after zooming in has still some bugs. Sometimes the staffs are sometimes anywhere on the page or only one bar line per page is displayed an than it goes to the next page.
Even sometimes after a repeat the measures don’t compare with the audio output.
The bug reports getting completely ignored which isn’t a good behavior in my opinion.
Fix the issues and make this app usable again because bevore the major update it was a very good app for musicians but now it becomes more and more worst and the next step from my site that I will report this app to apple. Because it took already enough time where I couldn’t use this app as I expected
Hola a todos,ayer decidí suscribirme a la aplicación con un mes de prueba y hoy ya no quier saber nada de ella,cuesta una eternidad conectarse,se cierra muchas veces cuando vas a ver una partitura y vuelta a la eternidad para conectarse,no hay orden en las partituras ,no están clasificadas no por dificultad,género autor ni nada y solo está en inglés además las partituras se repiten una y otra vez por autores diferentes sin poder saber cual es la buena,un desastre y una gran decepción,saludos y si la mejoran me avisan y la probaré,gracias.
Just got the app on my iPhone, and so far I'm pleased with it. Being able to take all this music on the go is super nice. However, can you leave comments with the app? I could not find a way. I would find that super useful. Also, if there could be a "User search" That would be very handy. Also, will there possibly be groups on the app in the future? Thanks.
After transposing a song it is reverted to original key in the exported PDF music. Is this a known issue that is being addressed? (Or perhaps user error? Do I need to do something super unobvious to make this work in the current app version?)
A few comments / complaints about the iOS version of Musescore and Songbook.
1) Current versions of both iOS and the app.
2) While working in an ensemble, an attempt was made to transpose a piece while not connected to the internet. The app crashed hard - taking with it the piece being worked on. Completely gone. All others seem unaffected. I suspect that the app attempted to check to see if I had paid for it as I was attempting to do something that was covered only in the Pro version.
3) Taking a cue from the Adobe Reader app and how it interacts with iTunes, I opened the program space ( namespace? ) of the app on the iPad to see what I could discern.
a) recent upgrades have not done a thing about housekeeping, as there were thumbnails of scores long ago deleted still present. Furthermore there are databases that date to two years ago and are no longer being used, updated, nor deleted.
b) because of how iOS handles program space ( namespace ), even though I can add an .mscz file to the namespace, the app does not know how to handle it’s presence.
What we are going to do as soon as the next “update” is available is delete the entire program from the iPad, then install the newest version.
I get that you want to make some revenue off of this application, but if you call something Pro, then it needs to act like it.
Being able to move files directly from desktop/laptop to the iOS application space would solve a whole lot of users problems ( after reading through the recent complaints ). Using Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud is great, but when you have a venue that is out of internet reach, it does no one any good.
Proper housekeeping is essential.
Allow rollback to prior version is only a wise choice. I have two iPads, my wife’s Pro which is up to date and having all of the issues and mine, which is not up to date and has no issues, nor is it “Pro”. If there were a way to Backup my version and re-install it on her machine, I’d do it in a heartbeat.
Fix this. Next comment will be on the review page on the iTunes store.
Not just at the beginning and end of a measure.
I like to learn a new tune in phrases and often the phrases do not fit exactly on measure boundaries (anacrusis).
The main version of Musescore does support this feature request.
please help me if you can. i successfully created a score online using musescore before...ive logged in, the score is still there. i wasnt imagining it. now, i cannot see where to start a new score online.
off to the ipad...got the app. am i right that the ipad version can only be used to view scores rather than create them?
i am hoping to use musescore to create arrangements for my string orchestra. thanks
