Two to speak of: I’ve just acquired Sibelius 4 as I want to do some choral score setting. Anyone who has used Sibelius will know that it works best if you use the keyboard for most input (rather than the mouse), which involves getting a USB number pad to work with my notebook. Little did I know that not all number pads emulate the numeric keypad (which Sibelius is picky about...), and of course I bought one that was unsuitable. My second niggle is with this blog. I’m experimenting with Word 2007 beta to generate and post my blogs, and the help in the beta is, to say the least, sketchy. I’m sure I’ll work it out eventually, but in the time things are a bit slow and cranky.
