Not impressed

I downloaded this as a giveaway of the day a short time ago. I wanted to use it to transcribe a Debussy piano piece for orchestra and in the end I gave up. I can just about manage to create a part for a single instrument, but have found the following problems among others:

- I couldn't find a way to put triplets against duplets (a bit of a downer for Impressionist composers)

- If I made a mistake with a time signature or with making triplets, correcting it made everything else following it go completely haywire - notes would be deleted from bars and their times would be altered to something unrecognisable.

Basically, it seems OK if you stick to one line at a time and you don't make mistakes, but even then it can be flaky.

Things that I couldn't work out how to do include:

- making the length of a "hairpin" [de]crescendo what I wanted

- drawing a phrase-line (as opposed to a tie)
