There's an error because the expression has one too many parenthesis...
if you double-click the text-editor (the title of it) you should see a small pref window. untick the option
extra parenthesis (i don't remember what it says actually but you get the picture) and try again.

I do not know what you mean?

seems you have to add a lot of boxes for something that's should be as simple as typing the above score into a
text-box. For example, how do you get those wonderful scores shown in the examples? Surely not by editing
graphically or building them up with boxes.
In general, by entering them using the ENP GUI...
