Musescore 4 won't let you save and exit
whenever I try to close the program without saving, it opens the window where it asks if you wanna save, but if you press save the window and the program won't close. Found out the hard way that my version on windows pc won't let me save anything (wasted 2h of work) even pressing the save button before trying to close the program won't do anything.
There's no save button anymore...
File > Save would certainly save.
And then allow you to exit

I know there's no save button. I tried to save the way you're saying. It simply won't save. If I follow your process, when I try to close the program it will ask me again if I wanna close it without saving. If I press save then, the window will stay open and won't allow me to exit.
Some bug of my version, probably.

I'm having the same issue. I can't save scores either onto my computer or the cloud. I get 'File not find. Check the filename and try again.' when I try to save to my computer, and no notification at all when I try to save to the cloud, never to be seen again. If I find a solution I'll let you know! Hoping there's a simple fix.

Ok, so I've uninstalled the hub and musescore, then reinstalled musescore only (without the hub). I can now save, but not to my documents folder for some reason. It's also allowing me to publish to muse score. Hope that something there helps you.

found out that if I modify the file on Mac and then save, it will save it on read only for some reason. So there was my problem. Never had this issue with musescore 3, so I didn't check that at first.

check if the file you're trying to modify, is a ''read only'' file. For some reason when I work on Mac the file will be saved in ''read only'' mode. Never had this issue in Musescore 3
Same here, January 26, 2023. Well, that was for sure an anticlimactic experience.
Back to Sibelius it is.

They sure are. Would have been even better if they had worked properly.
The QA policy over at MuseScore is lacking – at best.

I wouldn't blame the QA team for strange circumstances on your computer...
This issue is probably caused because MuseScore does not have permission to save files on your computer. For one person this turned out to be caused by Windows Defender, so that might be the case for more people.
Anyway, I do think MuseScore should show at least an indication of what happens; I've logged this as a task for the development team: https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/issues/16104

I have been opening MS 3 files in MS 4 with the intention of saving them in the updated format. Perhaps there is a bug specific to this activity. MuseScore 4 hardly ever responds to mouse clicks on my Windows 11 PC or on my imac, all with latest software updates. Menus seldom open and save buttons don't respond. Marc suggested that my clicks may not be steady, but that is assuredly not the problem. It does not occur in MS 3, or in any other current program, and I have never experienced it before in my life.
