I purchased PhotoScore back in about 2010 and I use it regularly. It does a good job with clean printed scores but several things annoy me.
1. The Bad Timing Navigator panel displays red text on a black background which is very difficult to read and I have to use a magnifying glass to make sense of it.
2. The ^ accent comes out as a capital A half the time.
3. The word cresc. often comes out as cresco

Now in August 2020 that I know that Photoscore 2018 is out I will investigate and purchase it if it does a better job with some or all of the abovementioned features.

I downloaded and installed Photoscore 2018 but found that the Bad Timing Navigator panel still uses red letters on black which are :D difficult for me to read on my 24 inch monitor. The word "cresc." came out correctly but the ^ accents mostly came out as capital A.

The enhancements must have been for features that I do not use so I will continue to use the version that I purchased ten years ago.
