Additional test results: Key transposition seems to work ok, but multiple key changes may be problematic, for example transposing a chart up a step, then down a fourth.
What does not
Feature to enter text comments (4 forms: page text, lyrics, measure text, or rehearsal text) but able to edit such text when created earlier in Windows. This is a clarification of previous entry, where such text was referred to as "notes" which (to say the least) was potentially confusing. A work-around to enter text at various page locations is to enter a segno or other sign at the desired location, which is indicated in the dialog box as a number. The number can be deleted, and text entered. This will interfere with playback following such designations (eg. D.S. al coda)
What was not tested
Never tested VST instruments
These are additions/corrections to earlier testing. There is also a free downloadable patch on the sonicscores website, to fix various bugs. This patch ran in wine without problems.
