Musescore 4 is incredibly disappointing so far.

I was working on a like a 30 part composition and then suddenly, the whole program crashes.

I go to open it again, as this isn't the first time this has occurred. It happens more often than not actually. Usually it works till it inevitably crashes again. This is already frustrating, right?

Well I go to open the composition again and the file is corrupted. All of my work is completely gone. Also strangely enough all the new sounds I downloaded all just decided to uninstall themselves.

I try to start a new composition, and start from scratch completely. The program crashes the moment I change tabs on Musescore 4.

This program is a joke, and I don't know how anyone is even supposed to take this notation software as a reliable tool to write sheet music.

That's just me though. However I know for a fact that I'm not the only person annoyed by this "complete overhaul."


Same here, I currently working on multiple sheet musics for band playing. Excitedly Downloaded and installed M.4 and voala.... it repeatedly crashed. With some files I worked on the day before, when I clicked on to open and continue working on them the next day, whenever clicking those files, M.4 just crashed and there is no way to open those files now. What a waste of my time. Had to re-install Musescore 3 and been using M.3 very OK since. Now dared not to use Musescore 4 until maybe another....
