I've managed to turn out a score that is, to the best that I've learned, not bad for the second movement of my Violin Concerto. All critiques are welcome.

The piece is here.

Score pdf attached.

Thanks for the suggestion about screensets, Mike But I have a workflow that works well for me, and it doesn't involve screensets. Way too much clutter to deal with as I see it. One, comprehensive window with the MIDI tracks I have selected showing is the display that I will want to be seeing at any time. The region colors tell me how the instruments' lines are moving against each other. With that window set up, I can select the track that I want to be writing in. It's a close simulation of how I would be writing on a single score sheet if I were using paper and pencil.

fair enough Art, but the point is that you have everything you want at the press of a button to get rid of clutter...but I guess it's only for if you want to go deeper into the programming. At least you've got your own way, thats' the beauty about it all, it is so configurable

I think I can imagine how screensets could be useful.  I arrange my workflow 1 task at a time. When I'm inputting notes, that's all I'm doing. Then, I go back in the indiviual track views to adjust velocities and then the main screen for any automation I might want to apply. It's no complicated thing to switch between these views, but screensets might make it even faster.
