I am working with MAC Catalina and trying to follow the tutorials.  What I am finding is that the commands given in the tutorials do not work as they are supposed to. Is there something in the MAC that needs to be set to make the program respond correctly?

Joanna,

 

Welcome to the Community. Can you give us some examples of things you are trying to do and (perhaps) commands you are trying to use to accomplish them?

 

If we can see specifically what is going awry, we can offer more specific suggestions.

 

(If you know how to use screenshots, those can sometimes be helpful too.)

Are you on a desktop or laptop? They have different shortcut commands.

What commands do not work as they are supposed to? - by your word “commands”, do you mean menu items or keyboard shortcuts?

(= are you using the mouse in a menu, or are you using the computer keyboard?)

 

In what tool?

In addition to the tutorials, make sure you watch the Quickstart videos. Watching how things are done is usually more helpful than reading how to do these things.

I am using a laptop. It’s a MacBook Pro, about 6years old.

One example is, if I try to use, say a 5 to get a quarter note, sometimes it works, but often does not.  Also, it says if you make a mistake you can do lCommand + Z “ and it will undo, but this is not working for me,
