I thought I'd answer this too, to give you more answers, I actually don't agree with the idea of writing a song on guitar, as you'll draw on your muscle memory quite a lot, and you'll be limited to only playing things you can already play, and that restricts your creativity. I don't often write guitar riffs, as I'm in a Symphonic Metal band, meaning the orchestra carries most of the sound, but my best guitar riff which is most likely the first time I've featured a guitar part in one of my band's song, is, I dare say, one of the most difficult riffs in Power/Symphonic Metal and it even gives some Prog Metal riffs a run for their money, and learning that made me a better guitarist, so there are many benefits to composing in Guitar Pro. My general process of writing songs is 'Write in Guitar Pro > Export Drum Midi to Reaper > Export drumless Guitar Pro wav to Reaper > Put orchestra on it', and that's worked brilliantly for me.
