I think Musescore is a good wysiwy notation editor. Make sure you get
the latest 0.9.4 I believe...
I also think Musescore is pretty far in its development. Further than
any other wysiwyg editor.

I think there are 3 candidates for a wysiwyg editor:

1) musescore
2) NtEd
3) Canorus

I personally uses Frescobaldi with Lilypond most of the time, but
sometimes NtEd (make sure you have the latest!) I like this one cause
it's very fast, light and true wysiwyg! You have to try it (there is a
Debian package)!

I have no experience with Canorus, but I think it is to unstable right now.

So I think you should choose for a wysiwyg between mscore or NtEd.

Hi Rosea,

Thanks for the pointers! Daniel or Free - any chance of one of these
notation editors getting into the official release?

Thanks!

I've heard that the developer of Nted hasn't much time for development
in the next half year....
So maybe it's good for 64studio to include mscore in the default
packagelist and NtEd in the repo.
