    Help with Music/.abc Files

    Any help? Is it just some secret Mac thing I don't know about? As far as I know, it's just Library/Application Support. So it's never going to find the .abc file since it's in a directory that doesn't exist and never seems to have...

    A "Library" option will appear in the menu and that's the one you want.

    It's located in your Home directory but hidden under normal circumstances.

    Thank you so much! It worked like magic. Now I know something new about my Mac, and I got .abc files working.

    Thanks very much again.
