It looks like the blank sheet music staves were drawn in red!!!

As much as I don't like Satie's Music, This is gorgeous manuscript! I like the red lines.

I agree completely with jan. odod's new font is an instant classic, and I want to buy a copy as soon as it is available for Finale.
Did anything ever come of this? I love it.
Odod sent it to me in a beta version, I think, but I couldn't get it to work, unfortunately.
