Converting Musescore 3 files to Musescore 4

• Dec 18, 2022 - 15:10

I've heard that it is possible to convert files from Musescore 3 to 4 but not vice versa, but how is it done?


V4 will open V3 files. It just gives you notice that you are trying to open a V3 file. Continue on. Your original V3 file is not harmed.

My MS3 points to /home/username/Documents/MuseScore3/Scores (on Linux). When I installed MS4 release candidate (the latest), it points to /home/username/Documents/MuseScore4/Scores. Say I want to take mysong.mscz file (from MS3) and try a convert on it. As other posters have clearly pointed out, you don't want to loose your MS3 version. I copy mysong.mscz from MS3 to MS4, and the two are separate. The MS4 converts (and saves) isolated from the original.

go to file explorer, right on file u want to open, open with, more apps, musescore 4, at the bottom click always open with this app. ez
