Limitations of Notepad

Post by stevemillikan » Fri Dec 14, 2018 2:24 pm

I have Finale 2014. A work associate is considering getting Notepad. Is there a definitive list of the limitations of Notepad? I found such a list, but it was three years old, so I'm reluctant to rely on it.

Trying to determine if we can exchange and edit files back and forth if he has Notepad.

The last version of NotePad was 2012. You will be able to open his files, but unless you export your files as 2012, he will not be able to open them.

The limitations are pretty extensive. Most pieces beyond "Twinkle, Twinkle" will be tough to do. I would really suggest that he get PrintMusic 2014.

Keep in mind that both NotePad and PrintMusic are Windows only, and it's doubtful that either will be developed further.
