Looks pretty good overall
  • This piece is in A minor, not E minor.
  • The end of the 8va line can move a bit to the left; it should end right after the last note it wraps around. The right side can move just a bit to the right as well.
  • m13-20 RH: The 8th notes in this melody don't really sound staccato to me. I'd recommend just leaving it plain.
  • m16 RH: You could include the fall here if you want, or not, it sounds good either way. I would maybe extend the note a bit if you're not including the fall though (maybe a half note).
  • m24 LH: This chord could be interpreted as an It+6 if it moved to an E chord after... but I think in this case it would be best to just spell it as an F7 and use Eb instead of D#.
  • Those offbeat 16th note rhythms on page 3 should be beamed together across each beat.
  • m44/46/48/50/52 LH beat 3: The E should be E#
  • m44/46/48/50/52 LH beat 4.75: The F# should be a low D
  • It almost sounds like the F in m46 should be tied to m47, but it's a bit hard to tell.
  • m49 RH: Db should be C# (Amaj scale)
  • m51 RH: Eb should be D# (Bmaj scale)
  • m52 RH: You could also include the falls here if you wanted to, but it's fine either way.

Mkay. The sheet has been updated. The falls were left out.

Looks good, just a few more additional comments:
  • When you change key signatures, be sure to check "Hold notes to original pitches chromatically", so that the accidentals remain the same. This caused a few issues in your sheet:
    • m2 RH should be spelled as Eb-Gb
    • The chromatic figure in m47-48 should be spelled with flats since it goes downward.
    • D#s in m57-64 should be Ebs
  • The 8va lines look the same as before. Here's a picture of what I meant, with each end being closer to the notes (also applies to m25-32):
  • The quarter notes in m13-20 RH still should be staccato, I just meant the 8th notes
  • The systems on page 4 should be spaced similarly to the ones on pages 2-3. The top staff is closer to the top than on those previous pages.

I'm pretty sure I did set it to "chromatically" and it ended up the same. Well, either way, I believe I got everything above. Anything I missed?

Not sure why it changed the accidentals then, but whatever, it looks fine now. I'll approve

Looks great, just a few comments on rhythm groupings:
- m. 26/28/30/32 have a quarter going through beat 3 in the RH. Change that to eighth + half rest
- Similar for the quarter rest in m. 48
- I would suggest not beaming together groups of three eighth notes in places like m. 7 LH, opting to break the beam at the beat. This isn't mandatory of course, though I and others think it tends to look a little neater. To easily change this everywhere, go to document > document options > beams and uncheck "include rests when beaming in groups of 4" and "beam three notes before/after an eighth rest" (thanks MSF)
