But, I didn't know Notation had an auto save feature because it always asks me if I want to save before I exit so I assumed that it didn't autosave.
Just trying to look out for those unexpected events in life.

So in order to download version 3 I had to uninstall version 2
Actually you can install v2 and v3 "side by side", you just can't run them both at the same time.

but last night right when the crash happened, I sent an email to which I assume might be you. So now I'm still waiting for a new download key.
You should have that by now. If not, please let me know.

Notation is literally the easiest software to use. After last night I requested for a Sibelius trial and from the looks of it, I doesn't have the same ease as Notation.
It really depends on what you want to do. If you want tools that help you create songs and readable/playable sheet music, Composer is hands-down the winner. Sibelius is great at "polishing" professional scores, but also costs about 4-6 times as much as Composer, depending on what "flavor" of Sibelius you get. And we have it from several Sibelius users that the MIDI transcription isn't as good as Composer's

I hope you continue to enjoy using Notation Composer, and have lots of fun with it. Please feel free to contribute your music in our "Share your music" section of the forum here. It's always fun to hear what our musicians are doing

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
