Save style

• Aug 24, 2020 - 19:35

I wanted to know why when I save a style it also saves the current page settings in the style. If both things are in different menus, I would expect Musescore to only save the style and not the specific page settings for the score I'm working in.


"Why" questions don't help much here, it is that way because it has been programmed that way.
Many style settings only make sense at a certain page size and staff space setting

I tried that but I couldn't even find the page size that way :-). I suppose by design Musescore doesn't want the user to save a default style while working on proper music but instead you should open a new document and save the wanted setting there so that the specific page settings of the current document are not saved with the style. The user however doesn't seem to be warned in any way, seen that you would logically think that "Page" in Style and "Page settings" are two completely separate things, which makes me wonder, like in LyX, why are the Page Settings not in the Style "Page"? (Yes, I know you said "whys" don't matter here, but this seems to be a very strange design decision!). That would make it totally clear that saving that style including the specific page setting is gonna make a style based on all that. It would also avoid a certain redundancy between "Page Settings" and "Page".

It is right at the top of the file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<museScore version="3.01">
