macOS Tags erased after every save
Hello folks, and Happy New Year!
I'm using OS: macOS 10.16, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 188.8.131.528020600, revision: 3224f34.
The problem is that every time Muse saves an update to a score, it removes the Finder "Tags" that have been assigned to the file. The Mac's Finder allows you to organize your files with colorful, labeled "tags" as a form of metadata to facilitate searching and sorting files anywhere on your Mac. I've started to use them to manage all my Muse scores and their publication workflow. But I found that scores were disappearing from my workflow. More research revealed that they were getting their tags removed. I thought maybe the Mac or Dropbox was at fault. But troubleshooting revealed that Musescore is causing the issue at the time of saving.
I seem to recall seeing "dot files" when looking under the hood in the past. I'm guessing Muse creates temporary new files when handling saves? That can be fine, but you have to preserve and filesystem metadata (tags are only one example) when doing so, or people are going to experience data loss.
Or perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree.
Can someone help here?
p.s. If you're not familiar with Tags, this will help:
