How Do I Create My Own Templates?

• Mar 5, 2024 - 00:46

I am on Microsoft Windows, Musescore 4.2.1.

I want to create my own custom template of a concert band, as the ones that are there aren't quite to my liking.

I have looked at some older forum posts, but they all seem to relate to versions of Musescore prior to 4.0.0. I tried following the instructions in this post, but I couldn't get the template to show up in the "New score" window ( I tried going into the "07-Band_and_Percussion" folder and putting my template into a new folder titled "10-Custom_Concert_Band", but it still didn't load.

When I looked into the folders already there, I see other files, like a folder called "META-INF" and two .json files called "audiosettings" and "viewsettings". Are these required for Musescore to recognize the template? If so, is there a way to generate them?

Create your score. Save As to the Template folder in your MuseScore main folder. To use it later, score, Select "From Template", select "My Templates" down on the left.
