What works

Everything I have tested works, except what I have listed below. MIDI input and output works perfectly, as long as I'm not using the built-in softsynth. The program has been very stable for me while working for long hours at a time.

What does not

Piano braces and ties are not properly rounded, but are rather angular. Unfortunately, it seems to print this way as well. The "Compile Postscript" option has glitches (Finale's fault), so the only real option to get a proper print-out is to open the file on 2008 (or Notepad 2008) on a Windows box and print from there. Also, I haven't been able to get the built-in softsynth to work properly (including Garritan Personal Orchestra).


What was not tested

I didn't go out of my way to get the soft-synth to work, since I preferred to use a native Linux synth anyway (faster).

Additional Comments

If the angular braces and ties are ever fixed, I would highly recommend this software to any Linux musician. The same problem affects the free Notepad version as well.
