This Musician documentation is organized according to tasks that you can do, and will want to learn about, in Musician rather than "reference" documentation, which is organized according to the structure of the software program-- menus, toolbars, dialog boxes, etc. We hope this helps you get things done quicker.


You can also choose the language for viewing this User Guide. Please note that this feature uses a translation service for the text only.  All screenshot annotations will not be translated, but the layout of each language variant of Musician is the same, so you should still be able to understand the screenshots.


prcarrow To change the language for displaying the User Guide:

1.Open Musician

2.Click "Setup", and then "Select Language of User Guide" (the last command in the menu list).

3.Choose the language you want to use from the drop list.  

4.Click "Ok."

5.Now when you use Help -> User Guide, and if you have chosen a language other than English, the User Guide will open in the translation service window. It may take a minute or two to load depending on connection speed and the internet speed time, so please be patient. English is the original language of the User Guide, and the English version will open directly on our website.
