This comment is so caricatural, forgive me.
I have admittedly not tested it to its limits, and being a member of a few Facebook groups on scoring (some of which have pro members), I have not heard Musescore ever being called a serious contender to the three I have mentioned. In addition, although I now self-publish, all the publishing houses allow scores to submitted formated in either Sibelius or Finale, and probably nowadays, Dorico. I'm not saying it is not very good for a free product, but I have never heard of it being used by a professional for final print quality.cadiz wrote: ↑Wed Apr 11, 2018 6:48 pmThis comment is so caricatural, forgive me.
Obviously, you do not know much about MuseScore, or you do not practice enough to know its incredible potential. Everything is feasible, customizable. For example, the section of historical tabs is better and more complete, and much of it than commercial programs allow.
Think too easily, because the product is free, it would be for basic stuff, and because the paid programs would be better because they are paying, here is a complete mistake!
And perhaps most importantly, MuseScore is an incredible community of members whose help for novices and others, for any question, is near real-time and of high quality.
MuseScore is a program of professional quality, and a help provided by volunteers of a professional quality as well!
Since you are not computer savy avoid Lilypond, you might find it too difficult and frustrating, even though it can do amazing things and produce beautiful output. Start from Musescore which is free and quite user friendly, and if you hit any limitations investigate the commercial alternatives.J.

I’ve dabbled with some but have issues with them allowing proper notation in treble clef, not allowing treble clef staves only , etc. I don’t need fancy. Just something that works well for guitar and doesn’t break the bank account. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
Again, the question is not whether it is a free product or not. MuseScore has a final print of professional quality, that's all, no matter if it's free or paid.Adrian Allan wrote:Wed Apr 11, 2018 10:06 pmI'm not saying it is not very good for a free product, but I have never heard of it being used by a professional for final print quality.
