This bit of your message is something I can help with: there really
isn't any difference in the compactness of the recent versions of
Denemo. It's just that I thought it was a good idea(*) to present a
series of palettes by default that would enable people who want to
press a few buttons and see notes appearing and so on. You only have to
get rid of them once (right-click on a button and choose "Edit Palette"
and then "Hide") and you will never see them again. You can make the
Denemo Display as compact as you need (see the View menu for removing
bits you don't want) even down to removing all menus palettes and
toolbars leaving just the  music you are editing (press Esc a few


(*) Perhaps this is a mistake and we should ship with a minimal
interface... people are so used to not being able to adjust the GUI for
their own purposes that they don't think of looking at the possibility.
People who are actually going to go on and use Denemo a lot will want
to use the keyboard to do most of the work as it is much more efficient
once you know what it is you want to do. The snag is that by the time
people realize they are wanting to do a lot of music typesetting they
have already got used to dragging notes and stuff around with a mouse
and are stuck with such tedious work.
