    You can save your work in a number of ways (MIDI, ABC, MC).

    MusiCAD without license does not impose any time or size limits and lets you even save and print your work (although a license will remove the inconveniences you will encounter...)

    <alt-backspace> or <ctrl-z> will undo the last change

    you can hide chord symbols and/or text without removing them by setting their text-size to 0

    <n> will recalculate the score and rewrite the screen

    <insert> will add notes to the current stick as in chord mode

    you can rearrange the button-bar to your own taste (and screen-width)

    <F12> will take you to the edit-area and back.

    <F3> is the shortcut for the score-menu where you can use the mouse to drag parts to their position.

    the tool-button in the score-menu allows for useful part-wise modifications

    <F5>, <F6>, <F7> and <F8> are most useful when entering notes (see tutorial in help)

    most likely the use of arrow-keys and <enter> will be the the fastest way to enter music.

    <tab> will take you to the next staff during edit (<shift-tab> one staff backward)

    that the mixer is the easiest way to balance the parts volumes (and stereo panning) - during play as well.

    <+> and <-> will alter the tempo during play.

    the use of cue-markers enables you to play from the corresponding marker by just pressing the letter.

    you can add your own sjablones and templates for layout and scores.

    these texts reside in TIPS_UK.TXT and can be altered (we are very much interested in your tips)
