thanks for the links, 

i had another look but still can't see anything up to scratch - i need a
gui interface where i can to create large orchestral scores to
publication standard, output and transpose instrumental parts, design
and import non standard notational symbols etc. etc.

besides this i have dozens of scores already in Finale that need to be
accessible to me

Finale is working pretty well under Wine but i would just like to iron
out the few glitches that are there

thanks again,


the link to mscore seems to be broken, or the page is down...
