I have downloaded some Guitar Pro files but I can't open them with Guitar Pro 4, the message is "Update your Version", why?
You must install the latest version of Guitar Pro 4 (currently 4.1.0).

I can't hear any sound during playback, why?
1/ Verify that the MIDI volume is not cut off in Windows (menu Options|Windows Volume Control).
2/ Go to the menu "Options|MIDI Setup" and select the appropriate MIDI output for the port 1. You can test all the devices available in the list.
Is it possible to obtain better sound quality or other instruments?
Guitar Pro utilises the MIDI output of your sound card. So, the better your sound card, the better the overall sound in Guitar Pro is. The best cards will allow you to obtain a very realistic sound. Another possibility is to use an external MIDI device.
The instrument list is defined by the MIDI specifications.
Note that you'll obtain the same sound quality and instrument list with all MIDI softwares like Guitar Pro.
Bend effect sounds wrong, why?
Basic sound cards don't allow pitch variations higher than 1 tone. For these sound cards, bends are wrong and "Limit pitch variations" in the menu "Options|MIDI Setup", must be selected to obtain a good sound for bends (but limited to 1 tone).

Can I remove the Tablature view?
No. Guitar Pro is a tab editor first, and a lot of tab elements and effects are based on the tab view. So you can't remove the tab view or printing. It should be possible in a next evolution.

How to configure multitrack printing?
Printing is done like displaying. First select multitrack view (menu View), and uncheck the tracks you don't want to see/print (checkbox "V" in the mix table).
