Roger, the other option is their on-line help.
I once couldn't sync. my iPod so tried their Helpline. They were excellent and talked me through and resolved my problem, which wasn't an easy thing to resolve. That is another viable alternative.
Good luck!

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

I used a file manager (I think it was Document 5) that makes your iPad document storage look more like a pc. ...

Is there an android equivalent, anyone know?

My Android phone presents itself as a USB storage device (i.e. like another disk drive or pendrive) when I connect it to my computer's USB port. I didn't have to install an app for that.

Some phones have a setup option where you can choose how it appears on USB (other options might be as a wireless networking connection, music player or camera, I suppose)

 Thanks for the information .... I have made a start with 'for Score'. I have to say I'm not exactly whizzing along with it but I find pdf files are simple to send using airdrop.

Does anyone know if it is possible to take a photo of a music score and put it into 'for Score' without making a pdf file.

Lizzy I use the Turboscan app (not expensive) which lets you 'photograph' (ie scan) the music, frame it (ie crop), add a title, then transfer it seamlessly as a pdf straight into forScore. You can also adjust the exposure intensity when you 'frame' it and choose colour or monochrome.

It is dead easy, even for me, and quick to use under almost any lighting circumstances copying any size dots from bits of paper, books, magazines etc no problem (except obviously copyright ?)

On Android I use the Mobile Sheets app. As well as filing pdfs alphabetically you can tag and filter by a number of characteristics, link to a sound file, arrange into collections and setlists.  YOu can even attach a footpedal to turn pages. There's also a PC app which will help you manage it.

If I could just understand what the dots mean it would be even more useful.

Yes. Go to Darkroom option on right hand icon that looks like a cooking pot. You can then import jpg from camera or files.

Not having looked at the forum for a few days, it’s very interesting to find discussion about forScore here. I’ve been using forScore for over 6 years; it was one of the reasons for buying an iPad in the first place. It was a good app back then, and has had continuous development and improvement, taking advantage of every update in iOS . I think it originally cost £4.99. Today’s price of £14.99 is a small one to pay for the best iPad music score storage, organising and display app on the planet.

Our small group of 6 accordion players have been using iPads and forScore (and Airturn foot pedals) since 2013. The iPads range from an elderly iPad 2 16GB to iPad Pro 10.5” 256GB. All run the current version of forScore, though the older iPads can’t take advantage of features introduced in iOS 11 and 12. All have oodles of room to store scores; my 2300 scores (including a number of fakebooks) takes up only 1.28GB.

forScore is very well supported with instructional material – user guide, searchable knowledge base and an archive of “features of the week”. These can be reached from within the app – top right icon (Toolbox) > Support.
There is also a fairly active forScore Users Group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1551026391866545/?ref=share

Piascore is pretty good, too. Easy to use, downloads from Dropbox, lets you take images of score and converts to pdf, turns pages etc. Works well on iPad. I don’t recall paying anything for it... but have been using it quite a long time.

Thank you Martin. I have been successful  (:)  another small step forward.
