Download 44 or File > Open to open and edit any files you have saved before. You must save any new edits you make before you compile it and if the PDF file is not created, check the log file that will have been created during the compilation attempt, for any errors. This log file is overwritten each time you compile your LilyPond file. The PS file is used internally by LilyPond to create the PDF file and can be ignored. It also gets overwritten each time you compile your file. If you are viewing your file in a PDF viewer, then you must close the PDF if you wish to make a new compilation as it may fail to create the new PDF while it is still being viewed.
