3 requests

Firstly, there is a bug where if you are writing a piano score and you require 3 staves for certain passages, in the passages where you don't need it, even if you use Style > General > Hide Empty Staves, Musescore will stubbornly attempt to add notes into that stave in passages where you dont need to use it. To better understand what I'm getting at, please watch this screencast: http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cbnYcG62GN

Also, you may have noticed a crescendo line there. My second request is for crescendos and diminuendo text lines to be implemented like this, when necessary (note: the following example comes from a passage in Anton Rubinstein's 12 Variations on a Theme in G): http://puu.sh/uaSAW.png

ty in advance~

Edit: Also, it'd be nice if you could do this without having to fake it: http://puu.sh/uaVvh.jpg


I won't watch the video, I'll bet you have a linked staff for the 3rd staff.

As far as the crescendo text is concerned, you can do that. The text is in the lines palette in the advanced palettes. For what you want, I would set each measure to an independent (de)crescendo. Then right click the line and select line properties and you can change the words without changing the effect.

um no? none of the staffs are linked. and if you need proof: http://puu.sh/uaUnP.png . as you can see none of the staffs are linked as shown in the ss..

adding separate (de)cresc to every single measure just to get that text effect is really tedious. what im wanting is a non tedious method of getting that effect because it really shouldnt be that difficult. ideally being able to just get the effect with one (de)cresc would be nice.

You picture doesn't prove anything, there is nothing on that screen that will tell you if a staff is linked or not. If you put a note in one staff and it shows up in another staff also, they're linked.

There is a way to simplify the process of lines. If 2 measures have the same words and function, then you and press ctrl-shift and drag it to another measure. This will minimize the number of lines you need to modify. As an alternative, you could create a custom workspace with these lines in them and use them like any other crescendo or diminuendo. https://musescore.org/en/handbook/custom-palettes

There's no checkmark in the linked box so no, they aren't linked. I don't understand why you are being so pretentious about this.

I'll try that method for line text later; thanks.

Edit: I just tried it and the problem with that is while it does fix the appearance of it on the score, it ruins the playback. I know MS's developers don't really care about playback but that's really important to me personally because I use MS to transcribe and listen to scores so..

Sorry, I missed the linked staff check mark. I never paid any attention to it before.

The purpose of a line does not change unless you change it (which you can in the inspector). So if you used the cres. to make a line that says do - - - - then it will always crescendo unless you change it. Of course if you make a custom palette you can't tell what do - - - - will do. Perhaps you could make one palette named crescendo and one named diminuendo so you'll be able to tell what the do - - - - line will do.

I like my scores to look good and sound good too. Sometimes you have to do something unusual to make it work since it is impossible for the developers to cover every unique item you run across. Take a look at my tremolo post from a couple of hours ago.

The first bug is known. It only affects mouse input, and only when you attempt entering notes with "Hide empty staves" turned on. So the solutions are to use one of the more efficient forms of input (eg, keyboard), or to not turn on "Hide empty staves" until you are done entering notes (always a good idea in any case). Or use Continuous view. See #8997: Hidden instruments re-appear when clicking outside the stave of visible ones for more info.

The crescendo line is already implemented, as you presumably have noticed, although if you want the individual syllables text to appear scattered throughout the line you'll have to just add those as text yourself.

In the third picture, is it the chord split across staves you are referring to? This is something that is requested periodically, but thus far risen high enough in priority to get implemented. Worth adding your voice to the formal feature request here: #14687: Split chord across staves in cross-staff notation
