Many thanks Warren, Richard and William. I'll do what you say and try my luck. I had been experimenting with multiple dashes and equals signs from my keyboard but I could not find away of moving them laterally so that they all stacked up one above the other. On advice from this forum, I downloaded version 2.51a a few days ago and now I can't find the usual notes in the notes tool bar. All there seems to be is a red note symbol which gives alternative fancy note heads that I don't need and a black note symbol which produces a sub menu of different sized notes. I like to be able to click on a particular sized note before inserting it at the appropriate place on the stave, as I have been doing for the last 18 or so years.
Many thanks for your latest helpful messages Mike and William. Thanks to your tip Mike, about toolbars, I now have my old friends the semibreve through to the hemidemisemiquaver once again at my disposal! I think I'll wait until tomorrow night before tackling the Pardypack William. One other thing I have forgotten though is how to hide staves. Cheers, John.

For tremolos you should probably use the "at next note/bar" justification choice on the Placement tab. You can also adjust the horizontal position by adding spaces before the character in the text dialog box - or after the character, if you've used right justification. [emphasis added]
