I make this note while still a beginner: Rosegarden would need a terminology
overhaul in order not to trip up new users completely.
"Import MIDI" really means: "New session based on MIDI file". It scraps
whatever you did before importing, warning that "File has not been saved".
"File"? It's the session that's not saved. Rosegarden needs to be consistent
about what I'm doing right now. Am I doing a "file"? Am I doing a
"composition"? Or am I doing a "session" or "project"? Pick one (except "file")
and stick to it. Whatever it is, of course it is ultimately stored in a file,
but a file is just a container for anything.
"Merge MIDI" means "Add MIDI file to track". This is what many people would
call "Import MIDI".
After these initial bumps I find Rosegarden has many pleasant features for
working productively with MIDI.
