Can I ask why ? It looks pretty fantastic to me. But then, I'm not an expert.

my guess is, like me, he learned on Finale. and if you learn on one, the other one just doesn't make sense!

It's just so unecessarily fiddly and complicated. All the obvious controls you'd use for every other piece of software are turned out in favour of it's own system.  Overblown, drawn out and just so incredibly annoying.  Angry

Rant over. Rog, I'm afraid I've never heard of Finale. They tried to teach us how to use Sibelius on my course, and every one of us agreed it was rubbish. It's a good thing we're not actually required to use it.

at least over here, Finale and Sibelius are the two major music notation players.  I think Sibelius grew out of a UK company and something called Acorn, though I could be remembering that totally incorrectly!

I really want to like Sibelius since he's my favorite composer.  (besides the Godfrey Bros., of course.)

Rob, are you familiar with the harmonica-playing of Mr. Ray Jackson of Lindisfarne?

I know that Sibelius has strong links with Digidesign (the company that makes and sells Pro Tools).

Not consciously, no - I'm more of a Bob Dylan man...
