    I used Encore because it’s easy and fast. I’m jazz musician and my needs are not the same as classical ones.

    Layout is very important to me.
    Sometime I just need one staff and some chords.
    Sometime I need a second line of chords for variations (often just for a part not the entier score).
    Sometime I need to add a rythmic staff or drum staff for rhythmic pattern (often just for a part not the entier score).
    Sometime the same for a bass line.
    Sometime I need to write several staffs..

    And I need to layout this by 4 bars or 8 bars to make it easy to read and using returning windows (or gates, I don’t know the english word for that).

    So I used Encore because it’s easy and fast to create these kind of score and I just want to have the same easiness. Software like Finale, Sibelius and a lot others are just hell for Jazz musician.

    So I hope having a modern and stable frontend, having new feature (with pleasure), but most of all being able to work as fast et intuitively as before. Please, for this point, change nothing!

    … or at least if changes are made – still retain the core ease-of-use that made Encore a go-to for quick sketches and even full score for many.

    I pretty much agree with the following exceptions:

    Printed slurs and ties need to look good. On screen, they do; when printed, they are horrible.

    Symbols need to be resizable, especially the Coda.

    MusicXML import/export needs upgrading to version 3.0.

    Update: I am currently working on Encore 6 full time and hope to have it ready by Thanksgiving.

    Encore 6 will remain simple and these issues will be addresed.

    Thank you for your patience.
