there's a button you can use to compress the size of the staff. so i suggest you use that.

the - and + buttons compress the stuff or spread ur notes out.

Umm, there's eight 8th notes in the 4th bar.
You have six 8th notes and 1 quarter, thus, 8 8th notes, or 4 quarter notes
So yeah, you're problem is you can't add? :p:
Hope that solves everything.

i know that, i meant i had to use the expand button to make the note fit
why wouldnt 8 1/8th note fit in the first line of each bar, but they would ont he 2nd line of each bar

WITHOUT having to expand

use spacebar or shift+spacebar to add or take away spaces. Or there's also a couple buttons at the top to do that as well.

Edit: never mind you beat me to posting

Damn your an idiot. It's not that hard. By the way the song sucks.
