Thanks. Yes, I have now :-)

It has a lot of oddities, another amazingly counter-intuitive and
hypermodal user interface, and it too crashes suddenly and without
warning on the most innocent of activities (undo is a particular
favourite). It also seems to have some difficulty with multiple staves -
bar lines don't go across all staves. This may be a misunderstanding on
my part, but I've never seen a bar that ran from the top line of the top
stave to the top line of the lower, cutting a rest symbol inhalf...

So denemo is out too. Sigh.

Regards, K.
