Sharing files via Bluetooth

All Categories / Adding Files, Sharing

This article relates to a legacy feature that has been retired and is hidden by default as of forScore 10.4. For most users, AirDrop provides a better solution for sharing files between devices.

If your devices do not support AirDrop (the preferred method for transferring files between iOS devices), you can share files with nearby forScore users via Bluetooth using the following steps.


  • On both devices, tap the “Bluetooth” item from the tools menu
  • On one device, tap the “Connect” button in the top left corner and select the device you’d like to exchange files with when it appears in the list of nearby devices
  • When prompted on the other device, choose to accept the incoming connection

Sharing: Tap on any item from the list to share it (use the search bar to quickly find something by name). Setlists, backups, and audio files appear at the end of the list.

At the bottom of the share panel, you can choose to send scores as 4SC files (which include editable annotations, links, notes, and more), or you can send the original PDF file as is.

Note: Due to iOS changes, forScore 7 uses a different API that is not compatible with older versions. As such, file transfers are limited to nearby devices running forScore 7.0 or later.
