The above is the link to the information which I could not supply. After using Clef_Change, you may have to use: Tools --> Audit ---> Note Stems and because the positions of the notes will have changed, you may have to adjust the positions of dynamics, etc.
From a reply (about 3 years ago) by Nicolas Hatier, author of an external convertor, which requires that you submit your NWC file in NWCTXT format, (other conditions are also displayed eg. max file size now 10MB).
In the past, I used the convertor frequently to convert output from Sharpeye's XML to Noteworthy (this was the original version which could only convert one way). I have NOT used it recently. The present tool capable of handling both XML and compressed XML
What I've been using, are user tools which Rick provided some years ago. These have been a great help to me, and it astonishes me that they have not been used extensively in the NWC community.
rg_ZapSpacers.php to remove spacers (by default from a whole staff, or from your selection).
Of the second tool, to place multiple spacers (again by default on a whole staff, or a selection), I've mislaid the parent version, but am attaching some of my copies, in which I've changed the parameter in the php coding.
With the samples available, it should be easy enough to set up whatever other you may require.
With these tools, it is a breeze to install and/or remove spacers many times, to try to achieve your goal. Unfortunately, the goal isn't always achievable..........
1. MUSESCORE (free) is capable off reading (some forms of) PDF and converting directly into its own music notation. 2. Save to .MXL (or .XML) and 3. Use Niversoft (explained above) to translate to NWCTxt. Quoting: "The resulting MusicXML file can be dragged to https://www.niversoft.com/products/xml2nwc/#conversion which will convert it to a Noteworthy Text file. The Noteworthy Text file can be downloaded and opened in NWC for editing and further processing."

This example assumes that the bowings (and ONLY the bowings) use the User1 font.
1. For testing purposes, make a copy of a staff containing the bowing markings and use the copy for the following steps. 2. Type ALT + F8, This opens the UserTools window 3. If this is the first time that you are adding a user tool, in the GROUP window, type a name for your tool(s) (in my case "Haymo" 4. left click on NEW, which then displays the User Tool Description window 5. The Group name will be filled in automatically, 6. In the Name block, type in the name for the new tool , for example Bowing_User1_AtNextNote 7. In the Command block, type in (or copy and paste), all in one line:
John, some other things which may be totally obvious, but worth looking at: 1. Is the "recycle bin" (or whatever it is called in W7) empty? 2.1 Is there at very least 18% (preferably more) free space on the C: drive?
2.2 If your answer to 2.1 is "YES": Have you recently defragged the C: drive? If the C: drive has not enough free space, first clear space by archiving / backing up / deleting before trying to defrag C:
An approach to saving space, is to automatically insert spacers in a selection or a whole staff. In a score of multiple staves, it's often also necessary to apply spacers in staves above and/or below to obtain best results.
An alternative, where you use the sound quality (MIDI or whatever) which is available on you PC/Laptop, all on your own PC/Laptop, no time constraints: * Install (free) AUDACITY, plus (free) plug-ins including LAME (which allows you to convert Audacity's output to MP3), * Start AUDACITY recording * Start your song (in NWC, or whatever) - - this may require some trial and error till you've got the levels, etc., right. (* Save as AUDACITY project, if that's the way you work.) * Snip-off unnecessary silences at beginning and end * Export to MP3. * Burn to CD / DVD.
guidovanharten, Please attach a sample NWC file (or portion). If it is possible to do what you're asking for, a definite sample will make explaining much easier. Possibly Rick can show you a trick how to do it with layered staves (display without slurs / ties, and using hidden playback).
(For projection, one usually has to make the font quite large and reduce the number of bars in each "line". Very much depends upon how far the furthest viewer will be and/or the quality of the viewers' vision, as well as contrast, colour, brightness and font used.)
Treble (for stem up) - I would call this S (for soprano), for which you must select: "Layer with next staff" and create the new staff directly below S (for stem down) - I would call this A (for Alto) Bass
For A: From the start, copy everything which is the same for S and A into A then enter the down stem measures of A .... and repeat this procedure if there are more occurrences.
Alternatively: For all the measures where S and A have the same notes, add hidden full measure rests in A. After the last (or only) occurence where S and A play different notes and if there are no repeats involved, you can stop entry of data for A, provided the properties for this staff are set to: Ending bar: Open
Hi Warren, for an old fogey, who hasn't visited the Noteworthy Newsgroup for years, please spell out in detail, which disk you used and how you validated your installation disk to get your user name and password
The latest disk which I have, is V2.5, and I'm using NWC V2.51 (I started using NWC when it still was distributed on stiffy, and my NWC 1.75b disk does show an Authenticity ID)

rbw1154: This is VERY strange, and the first time that I've heard of such an error in NWC. For forum members to try to help you. please supply more information: 1. If at all possible, post the music (at least the sections in which the errors occur), to the forum. 2. Which version of NWC do you use? 3. Do the errors occur at the same place, i.e. are the errors repeatable? 4. Which printer do you use, how old is it and has the printer done very hard work ? 5. Are the printer drivers up to date? 6. Have you tried un- and re-plugging all the printer cables? 7. Do you get any printing errors on any other work?
Best of luck in trying to cure this problem.
8. Have you recently installed new software? 9. Which operating system do you use, eg, XP, Vista, 7, 8 .... ? 10. ............ (Other forum members probably can think of many more questions to ask)
Aunt Betty, In my experience, you probably accidentally UNchecked Num Lock on your keyboard. The keyboard then reverts to what the PCs were around 1980, when there were no dedicated arrow buttons and the numeric keypad had to do double duty. On my keyboard, a sure give-away is the Num Lock light not shining.
The same goes for the "dynamics" buttons which have also disappeared.
This is where I find the keyboard shortcut d VERY handy: 1. Just type the d, 2. you get the full set of dynamics displayed 3. click on your choice and (it seems to me by default) NWC places it at (approx) -8 position, without you having to worry about the vertical position of the cursor.
I hope the same scheme applies to dynamic variation y, as well as other items which you can call up with keyboard shortcuts.
