difficulty starting note input in a blank score.

If I select the first bar whole note rest by double clicking and then press 5 to input a quarter note. Inputting a note still results in a whole note.

First select the start rest with _single_ click. Then start "note entry mode" by entering N. _Then_ press "5" to the select the duration of the note/rest you want to enter.

Sounds like a very clumsy way to get the program to do what it is meant to do in the first place. And not very intuative. Sounds more like legacy than design. But thanks for the tip, at least I will be able to start new scores faster now.
