confusing for beginners first using the program

• Apr 26, 2018 - 07:16

As it is today, I download 2.2.1, install it, tell it to bring me up a sheet of music and then I click on half note, then I click on the cleff. Imagining it will add a half note for me. Like...most other sheet music software I've used.
It doesn't. it appears the default mode is for "Note input" to be off.
Leading to some puzzled head scratches for beginners.
Suggestion/feature request: default to "note input on"
Either that or have one of those cool highlighting tutorial things for a fresh installation to teach beginners how to do it. Or something like it.


This way of notation actually proves to be more direct, clean and useful in comparison to other notation programs. (my comment says 'new' because I normally don't comment, but I have used Musescore for years)

There is a thing called "Getting Started: The one-page interactive tutorial." It can be found in the Start Center. I found it to be very helpful.

Well, that is subjective. O well. For me, it was easier to just press the note selector, then click where I want notes to go. Seems easier personally. I got used to rapidly using keyboard shortcuts. So I would speed click n, 1,2,3,4,5,6, and it would be perfect input. But in your preference, I guess that doesn't apply.
