General Discussion / Staff boundary change not working.
Hello.  I've been trying to change staff boundaries half way through a choral piece because for the first half there are two lyric lines and for the last part only one.  I've got the lyrics between the sop and alto staves, and between the tenor and bass staves, so I've been trying to reduce the upper limit of the alto, and the upper limit of the bass staves after the end of the two lyrics part.  I've followed Richard's notes (29/12/09 How to use some of the new features of V. 2.5) on the piece called 'Rose' and it worked fine on that, but when I tried to do the same on my piece, nothing happened.  I can't work out what I'm doing wrong.  I'd be very grateful for any help anyone can offer.  Thanks.
General Discussion / searching for succession of notes
Can anyone help, please? Quite often I want to change parts of an nwc score which I've found on the www, where the person has used two dotted semiquavers and a semiquaver to represent a triplet, and I want to change it to a triplet.  Is there a quick way to search for a succession of notes such as this, maybe by using some sort of macro?
Thanks, in advance for any help.
General Discussion / Magnificat by César Cui
Hello folks,
Can anyone help me find a midi or nwc of this work, please?  It's also known as Song of the Most Holy Theotokos, and is Opus 93.  Our choir is learning it and I'm making learning aids in the form of part-enhanced midis, but I'm trying to avoid having to input the whole thing manually - it's rather large!  Many thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.
General Discussion / lyrics for Rumanian carol Domnulet
Hi, I'm trying to enter the following text into the lyrics of this carol.  It's in Tahoma at the moment, but when I paste it into the lyrics box and ok it, it doesn't show the special characters, and the t of Domnulet comes up as a query mark.  Can anyone tell me how to make it display properly, please?  Thanks.

1.Ma-rei sea-ră de-a-stă sea-ră. Dom-nu-leț şi Domn din cer. Si nui sea-ra de-a-stă sea-ră. Dom-nu-leț şi Domn din cer. Ci e sea-ră lui Cră-ciun, Lui Cră-ciun ce-lui bat-rân. Când sa nă-scut Fi-ul sfânt, Fi-ul sfânt pea-cest pă-mânt. Noi um-blăm si co-lin dăm. Dom-nu-leț şi Domn din cer. Ce-stor fe-te ne’-nch’i-năm. Dom-nu-leț şi Domn din cer. Domn din cer.
Tips & Tricks / adding dotted slurs where lyrics require it in different verses
If you want to add a dotted slur between 2 or more notes, it's quite easy using a font I've created.  The font was created using Corel Draw and simply consists of a series of dots at different heights which replace the lower case characters a to k.  To create the dotted slur simply place the cursor to the left of the last note in the group to be slurred, at the height at which you want the dotted slur to appear, hit x for text entry, select the dots you want, e.g. 'abba' for 2 notes at the same pitch, or 'acdd' for ascending notes, select 'right justified', and 'at next note/bar' for alignment (you may have to use different settings depending on the notes).  In Page Set Up, put the font in 'User 1' font, and select a font size.  I've found that 9 or 10 point works best most of the time.  Use the Print Preview to see whether it looks right because it sometimes looks too short in the entry mode.  I was going to attach a sample, but as I'm not allowed to attach the font to this posting, you wouldn't be able to see the result without the font.  Please mail me if you'd like a copy of the font and a sample using this method.
General Discussion / simultaneous different time signatures
Can anyone help with this, please?  In a version of the Sussex Carol there are places in the score where there's a different time sig. on the S/A stave (3/4) to that on the T/B stave (9/8) directly beneath it.  On the printed score the bar lines are aligned vertically.  Is it possible to make this happen in Noteworthy?  Try as I might, I've failed miserably.  It doesn't seem logically possible, but if anyone knows a way of doing it, I'd be very grateful.
General Discussion / Antonio Caldara - Stabat Mater
[glow=red,2,300]Please[/glow] has anyone got a nwc file of Antonio Caldara's Stabat Mater?  I've completely failed to find it on the www.  Our choir's doing it and I want to prepare some part-enhanced files for practice purposes.  [glow=red,2,300]Many thanks![/glow]
General Discussion / Hummel Mass in D Major
Anyone out there know of NWC files or midi files of the movements of this Mass, please?  I can't find nwc or midi on the www, except for a midi which has all the voices on one stave.  I need it for making practice cds for our choir who are performing it next year.  Any help would be very much appreciated.
