Percussion Instrument Change unsuccessful

• Mar 16, 2020 - 22:34

I'm using Musescore (latest version) and tried this while writing an orchestra score:

1) Start writing for a Drumset
2) After a few measures add text "Instrument Change"
3) Right-click on text
4) Select "Change Instrument"
5) Select "Crotales"
6) Try adding a clef or notes at that measure

Apparently step 6 doesn't work, I can't add a clef or any notes.


You can't change between unpitched to pitched on the same staff. Instead, use two separate staves, and set them to hide when empty in their staff properties or the global hide empty staves command in Format / Style / Score (after entering all the notes you need).
