can't copy & paste in newest musescore version (4.0.2)

• Mar 20, 2023 - 16:57

Hi guys

I need help asap, this is driving me insane.
I'm trying to use musescore to write a piece of music for uni work and just want to copy and paste sections of the music I've written to save time but for some reason it's not working? I updated to 4.0.2 to see if this would help but it doesn't seem to have made a difference, as it hasnt been working ever since I finally updated from musescore 3 to 4 and 4.0.1.

I was under the impression you could just select the section you want to copy+paste, then use ctrl+c and ctrl+z or the actual right-click copy paste option to do this, but none of these methods are working

If anyone knows a fix for this please let me know


I've had a 'spontaneous' issue where Shift-left click won't even select. If this is your issue try this. Save your work. close it and re-open it. I've had this issue in v3 (I don't use v4 because my old laptop doesn't support it).

I also noticed I can't use the mouse to copy & paste. When I highlight something to copy and right click the mouse when I choose copy the highlighted area reverts and nothing is copied. The keyboard commands work fine.
