  5. Store download error message popping up at start of MMM - have to click multiple times to close - number of varies with different users. FIXED patch

  7. The manual mentions song parts, however, has no guidance on how to set and edit them.
  8. Pitch templates do not appear to be working - the objects are cut according to the pitch changes, however there is no pitch change applied; there are no details on how to use this feature in manual.

  14. Track height problem defaults to Big and requires 2 x tabs to make it small when project set to 8 tracks. With > 8 tracks the track height once set to small and saving the project, new projects will have small track heights.
