D, no problem at all, and no need for apologies.
It's my first serious look at Rosegarden, and i've been impressed with what
i've seen so far. The 1.5.1 was a bit problematic, but this latest release
is a big step forward. Well done and thanks to you and the team. I do this
full time, (writing classical music) so any foray i make into software tends
to be in depth, and specific to what i'm trying to achieve.

I've located the horizontal zoom easily enough, and yes, it was vertical i
was chasing.
It's early days yet, and just maybe after getting the grid designations
assigned to Numpad KC's, and step inputting, i just might be alright anyway.
After all, no programme is all things to all users. Percentages, lol.
I've yet to find the backgrounds, but i'll have a fishing expedition through
the rose files and see which path i'm supposed to look in. (I'm still new at

Thanks for the input.
