{id='Size',label='Font Size',type='float',default=nil,min=0.1,max=50,step=0.1},
Max 50? False. (Luckily) I can even use 100 or more... just to reach the same size of a 18 point text.
There's something wrong with the metric...

I think I should try to adjust it to my needs.

Not clear on your point. The size 50 max is clearly a thing. These two clips give the same result:

Announcements / Re: Forum/Server Upgraded (August 2020)
I'll review these tools for a better way.

As I recall, the original Simple Machines Forum didn't use a popup dialog for links. I have historical aversion to the WYSIWYG mode, as it was troublesome.

Announcements / Re: Forum/Server Upgraded (August 2020)
From memory, I think this is the way these tools have always behaved. They could definitely be improved.

The trick is to use the tools before you have written anything. They are not useful for converting existing text.

Announcements / Re: Forum/Server Upgraded (August 2020)
Actions taken:

  • reversed the message counter when viewing newest first
  • removed the RSS feed link
  • simplified the credits to minimize confusion

If anyone is still using RSS feeds, I would be interested to hear how you utilize them.

Announcements / Forum/Server Upgraded (August 2020)
This forum has been upgraded to the latest generally available Elkarte release. We have also upgraded the actual server, including its provider and underlying OS and web server software.

Efforts have been made to migrate all of the prior forum version customization. Due to the complexity of this process, there could be issues that will need to be fixed. Please report them here.

User Tools / Re: Bug (or unfortunate behavior) in nwcItem:Get()?
This seems like a bug in the nwcut library. User object uses cd.opt_Raw for parameters, when it should probably have used cd.opt_Text.

Since cd.opt_Text/nwcOptText uses a .Text member for access, I'll have to do some testing. It seems as though changing it now would break existing tools that work with user data.

General Discussion / Re: Wish-list item: opaque backgrounds
Here is a better showing with Rick's markup:

Standard object:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Clef|Type:Treble
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=First|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam

|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=End|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

And as a Span object:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Clef|Type:Treble
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=First|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First

General Discussion / Re: Wish-list item: opaque backgrounds
But I am wondering how the objects are rendered relative to other standard items that surround them.

Standard objects are treated just like anything else. This text wheel shows it pretty well:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Clef|Type:Treble
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=First|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=End|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End
|Spacer|Width:10
|Text|Text:"֎"|Font:StaffItalic|Scale:400|Pos:0|Justify:Center|Color:4
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=First|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:16th,Triplet=End|Pos:5|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

If the wheel were drawn as a Span object, it would cover notes on either side of it.

General Discussion / Re: Windows Media Player: no sound when playing midi files
NWC would not impact this.

In my experience, Windows has a bad habit of losing its GS Wavetable Synth. Is it still present on your system? If not, you have to reinstall it, which usually involves some kind of triggering of a sound setup reinstall: Settings -> Search for Sound

General Discussion / Re: notes and lyrics are not visible
If you are still having this problem, I would start by rebooting the machine, if you have not done so yet. This often cures problems like this. AFAIK, there isn't anything in the 2.75a upgrade that would cause this, but Windows sometimes flips out when system fonts are replaced until a reboot is done.

General Discussion / Re: History does no longer work on Win10 / 2.75a
Check your folder settings in Tools, Options, Folders: Config Files

The file history is maintained in a file called FileMRU.dat

It is possible that you were using a default config folder in some other default location, and that has been inadvertently changed by the upgrade, as the core logic was simplified in 2.75a.

General Discussion / Re: Same instrument, different sound
The cello staff from your older preferred file shares its MIDI channel with another later staff that uses a String Ensemble 1 instrument patch. If you want your new file's cello staff to sound like an ensemble, you can simply set it to also use that same patch:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Instrument|Name:"String Ensemble 1"|Patch:48|Trans:0|DynVel:10,30,45,60,75,92,108,127|Pos:8|Wide:Y

General Discussion / Re: Same instrument, different sound
Given two files played on the same computer, there are two primary factors to the sound that you hear:

  • the play back device - check this from Tools, Options, Midi, as well as Staff, Staff Properties, Midi, Play back device
  • the chosen instrument - check this from Staff, Staff Properties, Instrument and any Instrument Change items in the staff

General Discussion / Re: Problem with online object sync.
the api server was upgraded in the last 30 days. It would not be surprising if XP has issue with something new

This. In my tests, all versions of the NWC user object scan were failing on Windows XP.

I have reconfigured the server, and the user object scan seems to work again, at least for now. Going forward, Windows XP users are in for a rough ride as industry requirements will make it harder and harder to connect.

General Discussion / Re: Trying not to panic
Any suggestions ?

As I understand it, the only copy of these files is now found on an external drive. My immediate thought is perhaps the external drive experienced an anomaly, and has been re-assigned to a different drive letter. Try looking at the This PC (My Computer) area; check that things are working as expected. Also, check the logs to see if some kind of failure event has been detected on the drive. Until you recover your files, it is generally best to avoid saving anything else to the drive. This will give you the best chance of recovering files from it.

General Discussion / Re: Ties at a repeat, appear unresolved.
Assuming this excerpt is really written as shown (with no special endings), then the following clip would better handle the hanging note events:

Object Plugins / Re: BarCounter.nw
I have always run into the problem of the pickup bar.  I do not like counting this, because it throws me off in the standard 8/16 bar format.  I am using BarCount for the first time to designate the pickup bar as "0". 

You can just Exclude From Bar Count on a pickup bar:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]

General Discussion / Re: Upgrade to 2.75 on Windows 7
I suspect that the Config Files folder location is assigned to a non-existent directory. You can fix this from Tools, Options, Folders.

This problem is generally detected and fixed when running NWC 2.75a (which is currently in beta release).

General Discussion / Re: Upgrade to non-internet computer
She has e-mail but no internet?

The NWC2 license does not prevent a user from installing in this manner. Currently, we also offer an optional companion CD that makes this process even easier.
41
Object Plugins / Re: BarCounter.nw
I replaced the original bar count with this version.  Please forgive my disappointment with it.
How do i get back my original bar count?

If you are going to work with a custom plugin, you should rename it to something other than a the standard name used in this forum, For BarCounter, I would recommend using something like BarCounter.local.

You can always acquire the latest version of any installed plugin using Manage Objects. The synch tool can be used to replace any local changes you have made to one of the standard plugins.

General Discussion / Re: Spacing between systems
You should be able to apply a larger low boundary in the section of the lowest staff that applies to the second system on that page. You should only need two extra boundary changes to make that work; the first occupies the space of your theoretical ghost system, and the second restores the normal spacing. Done correctly, you probably wouldn't need the actual page break, as that should just happen on its own.

I accomplished this with the following clip:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]

General Discussion / Re: Request for Repeated Note Shortcut
The easiest way to create Tremolo.ms note pairs starts by upgrading to the 2.75a beta, then updating your all of your plugins from Tools, Manage Objects.

Once you are using the latest 2.75a Tremolo.ms plugin, you can simply select a pair of notes and use Tools, Options, User Tool,.Plugins, Tremolo.ms: Apply to create the tremolo.

When building them manually, the key is to create RestChord notes on either side of the tremolo:

  • start by placing a pair of rests that each match half of the tremolo duration
  • now, use Ctrl+Enter to place the notes that define the tremolo (set their stem direction as needed)
  • select both RestChord notes, open Edit, Properties (Alt+Enter), and uncheck the Show Rest option in the Rest Chord tab, and mark them Muted in the Notes tab
  • now you can place the Tremolo.ms object between the RestChord notes using Insert, Object (Ctrl+J)

General Discussion / Re: Alert log
This means that the file is using a font typeface that you do not have installed. You can go to:

File, Page Setup, Fonts

then look for the '***' typeface, and replace with one found in your system.

General Discussion / Re: Funny effect
Dynamic Variance Command

Quote
The duration of the transitional dynamic variance is based on the position of the dynamic that follows the variance in the staff. Note that repeats and flow direction marks are ignored when determining the dynamic that follows the variance. If the variance does not have a dynamic on both sides of it in the staff, it does not alter play back dynamics in any way.

General Discussion / Re: Computer playback
If you don't want the keyboard to effect the state of your computer's play back synth, then turn off the echo feature. It is in Tools, Options, Record.
49
General Discussion / Re: Computer playback
As Rick points out, the Pitch Bend controller can cause this. When using it, you have to set it back to the center position. A full reset will also fix this.

Perhaps instrument changes that include pitch bend range should also reset the controller to center....this change will be considered.
(update) NWC already does this.

Update: Also looking into Flurmy's issue...

General Discussion / Re: A way to prevent system break?
The only ways to prevent a system break at a certain position:

  • reduce the printable size of the notation (from File, Page Setup)
  • remove extra space by placing reduction Spacers that reduce the note spacing
  • force a system break at a prior bar

So, for example, if you have:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Bar
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Bar
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

This can often be greatly reduced by using spacers:

Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.751,Single)
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Spacer|Width:10
|Bar
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
|Spacer|Width:10
|Note|Dur:Half|Pos:0
