Score playback from 1996 file

Post by steveyeager » Sat Aug 01, 2020 7:48 pm

My 1996 project opens
It's a duet Marimba and Vibraphone
The only part I see is the marimba part
The playback does play the vibes part along with marimba just perfect
But the vibes staff is hidden or something
I can't seem to open it's view
worked all through the staff tool, vids eta al
Any help appreciated

Have you tried scroll view, to see if it shows there?

Thank you. I did try that. Must be so hidden and versions so old that it's not recoverable

Maybe it's just off the page.
Scroll up and down, or resize page.
I don't see how it could playback if it's gone.

If you upload the file here, someone can probably help you.

I experienced a myriad of serious issues when upgrading from v2012 to v26. MakeMusic recommended I save all problematic *.MUS documents in MusicXML format then convert them to *.MUSX files. Those steps worked, but much labor was required to edit the imposed changes: articulations got scattered, instruments sounds were changed, and such matter. If all else fails, I am confident the XML route will solve your problem.

Firstly try exporting the parts and see if the missing track reappears.
