General Discussion / New PC
Hello, I'm going to change the PC. NWC is certainly one of the programs that I will reinstall on the new machine.
I ask:
Does NWC also work well with Windows 11?
Is the activation code always valid for a subsequent installation (obviously after uninstalling the one on the old PC)?
Do I need detailed and clear instructions?
Thank you.
General Discussion / Insertions resize
It is possible to resize the characters of the insertions of dynamics, performance styles, tempo variance etc.?
If they are entered as text, which can be easily resized, does it affect the playback?
Thank you and have a nice day (it's raining here!).
General Discussion / MPC
Dear friends, I am transcribing a male choral song that includes solo parts (bass, second tenor, baritone and first tenor in order). When the soloist sings, the other voices decrease in volume. I am trying to learn the use of the MPC but I cannot get a good result. The MPC window, opened and reopened several times, does not allow itself to be tamed. Do you have any advice? Thank you and good evening. Lorenzo
General Discussion / NWC code
I very often see snippets of nwc files published in the form of code (text).
Would you be kind enough to explain to me how to do it?
Please use plain language for my ignorance of the English language and for my ignorance and that's it.
Thank you and good day.
General Discussion / Tie position
Hello, I ask if it is possible to move the tie up or down when it covers notes of other voices. I enclose example. Thanks.

PS: I apologize if my requests are sometimes unclear. They are translated by the online translator...
General Discussion / Insert text
I still ask for your invaluable help. It often happens to me that the lyrics of a song, for example when there are many lines, freezes on the "100" position and then it is not possible to insert other lines.
Perhaps the picture explains my problem better: the space inside the red border is not usable.
Thanks and happy Sunday to you. Lorenzo
General Discussion / Very long measure with speech
Greetings to you all.
How could I solve the problem of the measure indicated in the image.
It is the recitation of a "Libera me, domine".
Thanks to those who want to answer.
General Discussion / double dot
I have this problem. In image 1 there is the original to be transcribed. Bar No. 2 has a double dot note in the part of the sopranos and altos. To make the notes with the double dot appear you have to "bring them together" in a chord. In doing so, however, the melodic line of the altos is interrupted. Is there a method to enter the notes correctly by making sure that the double dots show up, like in the original?
General Discussion / Turn the stems horizontally
Good evening everyone, I simply ask this.
Is it possible to overturn the stems of the notes horizontally? To be clearer: FROM head to left and stem to right A stem to left and head to right. Of course, by changing the direction of the stems at will.
In the attached image, the 3 E (bass clef) should be turned to the left. Since this is a vocal line, which I would like to keep isolated in its own staff, I would not like to use the chord, which would solve the problem in an excellent way. Thanks.
General Discussion / From two staves to three staves
I'm transcribing a rather complicated score. At the twenty-fifth measure the two initial staves become three and, alternately, the third staff, the added one, carries the soprano or bass clef. I ask if it is possible to transcribe the score in this way. Otherwise I'll put the four separate staves. I attach some pictures. Thanks and and happy Sunday. Lorenzo
General Discussion / Final Master repeat close
Good morning to you, I ask for help with a repetition sign placed at the end of the song. Is it possible to eliminate the final  bar, showing only the repeat sign? Otherwise the solution I propose is the pure and simple repetition of the notes, as indicated in the lower staff.
General Discussion / Melisma
Good day. I always follow you with interest even if I chew very little English (blessed are the online translators!). I came across a passage during a transcript that I solved as you can see in the attachments. To obtain the melisma line, with the traditional slur of the toolbar, you get a rather ugly arc, as seen in Annex 1. By reversing the stem of the first octave, the result is very good (Annex 2), but, since it is a choral voice (I did not put the lower voice), the stem would collide with this voice. The first solution (annex 3) consists in keeping all the stems up, shortening the one of the first octave (second note): in my opinion, not bad. Obviously the u.t. "Melismatic" is inserted. The alternative "text" remains, with the creation of the slur through u.t., magnificent from the graphic point of view (annex 4), but with the problems of the "text" in the creation of the melisma line. Do you have other solutions? Thank you for your patience. Lorenzo
General Discussion / Print the score horizontally
Good day, I always follow you with pleasure. I'm not a musician, just an amateur and moreover half deaf.
This is my question: is it possible to always print the score horizontally?
Happy New Year everyone and thank you.
General Discussion / Traspose staff and new Key signature
I need to copy songs written in different keys and transport ("tools ---> transposed staff) in the key of C maj) to play them with harmonica in the key of C maj, but also from C maj D maj or other shades.
When I run this operation notes with sharps or flats are ALL very bumpy (D maj all C and all F) and what I do not like, and especially NOT appears the correct key signature (##).
Where am I wrong?
Thank you.
General Discussion / melisma
Good morning,
you wonder if it is possible to automatically insert a "melisma", a continuous line after a syllable which follows a tied note. It can be done only with the "text" (xe insertion line underline)?
Thank you very much.
General Discussion / extension lyric words
Hi friends,
I ask you how you can get a good result for the extension of the words in the lyric, if this is possible. I tried to add the underscore (underline) in the text entry box (X), but its position is always either too high or too low, or off-center. There is no automatic way to do this?
I am attaching a small example
Thank you.
General Discussion / chord insert
Sorry for my English of  Google's translator. I have this problem. I have to input a chord (2 notes). One note is a quarter, the second note is an eighth. How can I do?
Many thanks.
General Discussion / small print preview
Why NWC with 2.1 the width of the page print preview is half its actual size? Does anyone know give me an explanation and a solution? Thank you.
