MacOS - Default "Open With" app automatically resetting to MuseScore 4.0 (instead of MuseScore Studio 4.3)

• May 30, 2024 - 20:46

I picked a musescore file, went to get info and changed the "Open with" default to MuseScore 4.3 and then hit change all to apply this to all mscz files, and then it promptly resets to Musescore 4.0. I then deleted Musescore 4.0 and checked all file locations and everything and made sure Studio 4.3 was in the right applications folder and everything. When I try resetting it again, it defaults to MuseScore 3. So it seems to be an issue with the Studio 4.3 application file. After some time (I'm not exactly sure the steps that cause this), I'll open a score and it opens in 4.0, magically reinstalling and opening a deleted application. Any thoughts?


I've seen a few reports of related glitches. RIght now my best guess is that it has to do with the change of name to "MuseScore Studio", that the file associations aren't finding it. Just a guess though, and no idea what that would mean in terms of doing anything about it.
