How do I inject a .wav or .mp3 file into notion and then score it? I have seen posts about using "Attach File" in Notion 4, but in Notion 6 no such Tool menu option exists. To be specific, I am making an ambient composition for a computer game. I need to play a repeating (looping) wind track, and I need to play occasional ambient noises.

By the way, the help,pdf file also refers to using "Notion Instruments / Special Staves / Basic Staff" and "Tools / Attach Audio File", but NEITHER of those things exist in Notion 6. I just bought Notion, and between this documentation failure and Notion crashing last night a losing my beautiful work (which I will NEVER EVER reproduce) I'm starting to feel a little sour about this whole thing.

Sorry to hear that you lost your work. That's never fun.

Attach audio is under the SCORE menu.

The Basic staves have their own tab now in Score Setup. Click the "Basic" tab, and select a Treble Clef staff to add a new basic staff to your score. The audio can then be attached to that. It has to be a .wav file.

If you find errors in documentation, I'd suggest that you post a support ticket. The development team will fix the errors in an upcoming maintenance update. They are very dedicated!
