I Am trying to transpose a piece of music from C for an Eb instrument ? I wrote the first staff in C then added a new staff and copied the first staff to the 2nd staff to transpose One problem is when I play both staffs in C I get 2 different tones even though they are in the same key.. when I transpose the 2nd staff to "A" it comes up with 3 sharp but at the lower tone of the 2nd staff What am I doing wrong
When I copy A piece for 1st 2nd and 3rd Violin on one screen then copy it on the desktop to separate the parts the copy comes on the desk top as a BAK file which I cannot open. Am I doing something wrong ? Rik
I just downloaded the latest updates and saw changes in the discussion group page However as I was entering notes on a staff my computer went crazy with the pointer jumping all over the desktop and the staff went out of to the left The repair shop said it sounds like a software problem. I am asking to see if anyone had a problem Thanks Rik
There was quite a lot of work and discussion some time back when it was being implemented. IIRC particularly for those who write for bells.
I imagine it is also a very good tool to have for teaching small children.
Maybe the bell ringers would find the shortcut and the teaching of children useful but I would guess that the number of users that are more inconvienced far exceeds the number of bell ringers or students. The feature would still be available for those who use it I also type in notes by sound and have to delete more than a few and start over
After having a stroke in 1998 I needed something for therapy and decided to learn to play an instrument for both dexterity and memory improvement. After 3 years of lessons my teacher got me involved in an orchestra made up of senior citizens
I couldn't read the old scores and someone suggested NWC so I started doing over the parts so I could read them easier. Shortly after other members asked if I would do over their parts also The the director asked if I could seperate a piano score for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Violins etc .
Since I started I must avve 300 to 400 parts in my computer. This evening I just finished a 3 part Trombone piece My musical background was as a vocalist Rik
I agree that while having the song title appear on every page it does bring up the problem of instrument identification which is often necessary. for example '1st Violin pg2- 2nd violin pg 2- 3rd violin pg 2 Etc. which would require a text entry so adding the title is just another step Rik
One of my noteworthy folders contains over 700 songs with parts saved alphabetically. I would like to devide it into 2 files/folders A-l and M-Z. Does anyone know a shortcut or way doing this besides deleting one song at a time ? Highlighting by groups does'nt work Thanx Rik

Help!! Itried to enten different instruments to an arrangement for brass that I am working and found the list of instruments has disappeared. How can I recover it. It has been quiet awhile since I was in NWC. Has something changed? Thanks Rikbel@juno.com
working with the treble clef I entered a dotted 1/8 note on "b" I then inserted quarter note on "a" as a chord member, when i did so the dot for the 1/8 note was showing on the quarter note as a dotted quarter Thanks rik
First of all Thank You David for answering my question and again I apologise for cutting in on another persons topic.
My question is: Whenever I bring up music which I entered into NWC and make a change in the score I receive a message that the piece was written on an older version of NWC and may not be playable after it is saved even though it was entered using NWC 2 which i have been using for a long time. Thanx Rik
Since the new forum stsrted i have been unable to see examples sent in by other users. I create a staff in n.w.c and hilight the example acd try to copy and paste the example onto the staff but nothing happens. What changed ? Thanks Rik
