Search text on a score

• Feb 28, 2023 - 15:53

Do you know if there is a function to search text inside musescore 3 and 4? I'd like to search "add9" or "crescendo"


Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there's a built-in way to do it (at least not in v3.6.2).
It's possible that someone has written a plugin for it, but I'm too lazy to check right now.
You might be able to turn your .mscz file into a .mscx file and search that... There are multiple ways to do that. Possibly the easiest is File->Export, then select "Uncompressed MuseScore file (*.mscx)"
Then open it in a text editor and just search it. It may also give you a bunch of results for crescendo lines/hairpins, but that's the only way I can think of to do it (unless I want to write a regular expression for it... and I don't).

Thank you, it works.
Enter filter type 47 for chord and roman numeral text.
For those searching for dynamics symbol text, some will not work : such as mf, search the internal encoding instead mezzo = m. (But if you've edited the symbol at least once it will turn into non internal encoding, just try diff search words, or use a plugin to print out the internal encoding)

Also thanks TrebledJ, your plugin is nice.
