When I first installed GPO in 2005, I included the Overture program that was on the extras disc. But I've never had need to use it, since I usually am not concerned with making notation versions of my projects. I use the Staff View in Sonar for simple print outs as needed.

But I have peeked at Overture a few times, and can see that it could produce some nice looking work.

I'll be needing to print out vocal scores, just the melody line and lyrics, and MIDI files for that purpose are all ready.

But it looks like this light version of Overture doesn't include the abilitiy to handle lyrics. In the program's Help file it says to see their site for upgrades.

Looking through the site, I can't find the information I need--except that apparently the cross-grade style of upgrade one needs to do from SE would cost $200--? And I Suppose that version handles lyrics.

So--any information on the above? I wouldn't want to be upgrading with the layout of $200 just to have lyrics--I can live with the simpler print outs available to me now through Sonar.
