    Geras atnaujinimas!MS PowerPoint "ir UAB" Impress importo Be to yra gera. Įrašyta vaizdo yra taip pat gerai. Ataskaitas, kurios dar reikia šiek tiek darbo. Vis dar yra daug sričių į paraišką, bet ne būdas gauti informaciją iš (ty pridedant pristatymo seka, dainų sąraše ar daina spausdinti. Spalvų kodavimas vedėjas yra naudinga. Tačiau pilka, naudojamas dabartinis pozicijos yra sunku atskirti. teksto blunka pilkos. Siūlyk paryškintu šriftu paryškintos linijos.

    Open song is a free music presentation program that is severely lacking in documentation. The HELP file is almost worthless and there is very little real information on line. There is no explanation of the terms used and no explanation other than a straight forward 'do this' type of instruction. The 'hints' at the top of the page are meaningless. Editing is difficult and correcting on-the-fly is impossible. As one person commentated, "the idea is great but so hard to use". Needs a lot of work to make it into a better program. Being open source means that will take time.
