Program crashes while loading a saved file

• Mar 25, 2013 - 18:19


I created a file, .mscz, about a hundred measures with lots of slurs and some triplets. Now the program crashes whenever I try to load it. Please help. Below is the version of musescore and my OS.

1.3, v. 5702
OSX 10.8.3

I'm also attaching the file ("crash.mscz").

Thank you for reading.

I have seen many pauses invisible, and the triplets are a sore point.
If you have a corrupt measure, with cut and paste it spreads the infection.

The trick:
I open with Nightly;
Export as XML;
I open with 1.3;

Sooner or later it will come a more authoritative answer, while...good music.

Hi bnjmnwn -

The problem seems to occur about measure 113, out of 114 measures. It's possible that the actual error is at the end of measure 112, as well.

I've attached the original score, but without these last two measures, in case there is other information that was lost when Soichi exported as MusicXML.

How did you input this complex rhythm? Is it directly from a Midi performance? I haven't seen what appear to be triplets within triplets before, and I don't know how well MuseScore will handle them.

Franz, if you can figure out how to unzip the MuseScore file and know how to "comment out" measures in the XML, it isn't hard to figure out where the problems start to occur. (And if you don't know what I just said, don't try it!)

Good luck,
