A Note Of Caution for New Users/Upgraders

Post by psalmist »

I upgraded to ScoreWriter 5 on May 8th. I had not used the product for some time, but remembered it as a program that suited my modest needs and with which I was very comfortable.
I installed it on my iMac (OS Monterey 12.7.4). It crashed when I tried to import midi files (on which I had a couple of simple compositions), so I worked around by re-inputting the notes manually.
It subsequently crashed a couple of times for no apparent reason. Today I spent several hours inputting lyrics and tidying up one of the pieces. It crashed again, but this time I have lost around 2 hours of work. It now seems apparent from the forum that there is little or no support for the program and I am therefore resigned to switching to something else, likely Dorico, which I am not looking forward to. So just a note of caution to anyone thinking of investing in ScoreWriter.
This was such a good program at one time. Sadly it has cost me some wasted hours and $35 to find out that is no longer the case.
