User Tools / Re: Dynamic Placement
Hi Warren,

I tried to install this user tool :
- I stored it in my scripts folder
- I renamed it in dynplace.js
- In NWC, I opened User Tools / New
- I created a command line "'C:\Program Files\NoteWorthy Software\NoteWorthy Composer 2\Scripts\dynplace.js" <PROMPT:Enter equal OR +- dd:=*sdd>

Then I executed it on a selection of a staff (with a parameter of '-10') and got this error message:
"Command process failed"

Can you tell me what I did wrong?

General Discussion / Re: How to mute a note in 1 verse.
Thanks Richard, Lawrie and Rick!

It seems to me that all three of you are fulltime watching the forum so to help poor people like me!
Both solutions from Richard and Rick work well.

Rick: this is a "why did'nt I think of that" solution! But that's characteristic for a genius (you, I mean), I guess.
Richard: I didn't know one could have special endings in the middle of a repeat.

I finally chose Richard's solution, because that's the first one I tried out and is works fine.

Lawrie: Concerning the missing Coda, thanks for noticing, but it didn't influence the playback, and the two tenor staves are layered, so it did'nt influence the printed score either. (But I've added it now of course)

General Discussion / Re: Feature / "bug fix" requests?
That's a useful tip, Warren.
I was wondering wether only the top stave was changed. You answered that question.
I tried it with two accidentals and the result is perfect. It's even better then using chords on one stave, because  I can't have two chords beamed correctly, when the notes of the chords have opposite stems. In that case, only the notes with stem up arte beamed!

Keep up the good work!

User Tools / Re: Tool to adjust stem lengths?
What would also be useful is a tool that automaticialy adds extra not space when  the corresponding notes on two layered staves are "adjacent", like c and d, d and f,...
If you use chords on one stave in stead of two layered stave, this is automaticilly done by NWC.

General Discussion / Re: Screen doesn't follow the music in the viewer
Thanks, Rick

I moved the top staff at the bottom. Luckily the MMR in the beginning of the other staves fitted on the first screen, so the problem is solved - for this song.
The ultimate solution however is of course correcting the bug.
Hope this will be in the next version...

General Discussion / Screen doesn't follow the music in the viewer
I'm using Noteworthy Composer version 2.5.3. and the viewer version 2.5.6a. I'm member of a choir and some of the other singers use only the viewer to rehearse the songs.

For one song I recently entered (see attachment) and in wich I used the new features (MMR and Boundary change), the viewer doesn't behave as it should. When playing a song,as the music reaches the right edge of the screen, there are 2 problems, one minor and one more serious:
  • if the last measure on the screen is incomplete, the screen is shifted only when the music has reached the first note of the next measure
  • and worse: when there is a double bar reached, the screen is shifted only when the music has reached the next double bar

In other songs the behavior is correct, so I assume the problem is caused by the new features I used.
Has someone experienced similar problems?

363
General Discussion / Re: Zoom in
I'm not using zoom in and zoom out, but I have similar problems when entering a sheet into NWC: I'd like to avoid the shift key as much as possible. When realizing that every language/country has its own keyboard layout, this problem can only be satisfactory solved if there is a possibility to customize the shortcuts.

General Discussion / Multi-measure rest - playback options
The multi-measure rest is a very handy feature, a specially in combination with the collapsing staff option in the boundary change command.

But what I miss is an option where one could specify that a MMR should be handled as a single measure when played back (and in the viewer), in the case where all the played staves contain MMR's.

This would be very useful for the rehearsal files I create for my choir. I make several files, one for each voice (TTBB) and 1 for ALL voices.

Now one has either to wait in silence till the MMR is fully played, or stop, click behind the MMR and then restart.

Moreover, since some of the choir members use an Apple, I also create midi-files. In that case there's only silence during the MMR. So this option should also be used for exporting to midi-files.

I don't think I am the only one that should find this option usefull.
Or am I?

General Discussion / Re: Need help dechipher notes
Ever since I first encountered a triplet, I'm wondering why there's a '3' indicated. In my mathematically (de-)formed mind it should be a '2'.
The '3' is just saying there are 3 notes, so that's no extra information. The '2' should indicate that they are to be played (sung in my case) in the time of 2 similar notes.
I never encountered a quintuplet are a septuplet (?), but when I do, how can I tell in what tempo they are to be sung ?

General Discussion / Fermata - odd behaviour
The example below is the start of the song 'Runaround Sue', arrangement of Jeff Funk.
In the first staff there are fermatae on the last (half) note of a measure; in the second staff fermatae on whole notes. As a result the duration of the notes in the to staffs is not the same anymore !

General Discussion / Re: nwc clip
Hi William,
When I click on an attached File, I get two options: 'Open' or 'Download'. When I choode the 'Open' option, then NWC opens automatically with the file.
I can then exit without saving, so no garbage left on my disk.

User Tools / Re: easier editing of nwctxt?
Hi Randy,

Thanks for the quick response.
I also received a personal message from Rick, saying I need to download the latest version of the user tool starter kit. Wich I did, and now I can start your editor.
I now have no time for experimenting with it, but I will soon and let you know if I have any problems with it.

And last but not least : I wish you a happy, healthy 2011 full of music!

User Tools / Re: easier editing of nwctxt?
HI Randy,

Excuse me for my stupidity, but I don't succeed in invoking your editor.
I tried 2 ways:
- Starting from a .nwctxt file, using "Open with...' ==> nothing happens
- From within NWC, as a User Tool : ==> Error Message in STDERR:

--> require_once(lib/nwc2gui.inc): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

Please help me out.
Thanks in advance,

now that I've (belatedly) tried it, I see that it is cleaner in edit (and view) mode to do so
And also in the viewer!

By the way, your SwingIt tempo tool is also invaluable to me. Without it, I couldn't generate playback that actually simulates the real thing. Bravo

General Discussion / Re: Local and master repeat / special endings
Thanks, Richard and David, for your clear answers.

As a mathematician, I assumed the repeat open and close always should appear in pairs, (eventually nested (in which case the last close refers to the first open (as is the case with brackets))):-).

Assuming that, my conclusion was that you could'nt have more than 2 iterations with master repeats (because you can only specify how many repeats are needed in local repeats), so how could one ever reach the 3th special ending?

But now I uderstand : you can put more than 1 master repeat closes, (each with its own special ending(s)), and they all go back to the same master repeat open.

Right? (If so, I don't expect an aswer (unless you prefer to of course))

I also looked at the repeat examples as you suggested, Richard. Another thing I understand now is that a master repeat can be put inside a local one (as you can observe in repeat1.nwc). Again I was misled by my logical mind (and by the Help file, which says about local repeats : "These loops can be nested inside a master loop which contains special endings.").
Of course, to be honest (an logical): that doesn't imply that the opposite is excluded.
Conclusion: Music is'nt mathematics, and music doesn't have to be logical! So it doesn't have to be boring either.

General Discussion / Local and master repeat / special endings
Quote from the help File :
Quote
Local Repeat Open/Close: A special form of sectional repeat symbols. These allow a section to be repeated for a specified number of iterations without specifying special endings for each iteration. These loops can be nested inside a master loop which contains special endings. Special endings do not apply to local repeats. Attempts to combine local repeats and special endings will yield unpredictable results. Unlike master repeats, local repeat loops are performed even after a D.S. or D.C. flow direction has been executed.

Master Repeat Open/Close: Sectional repeat symbols for repeating a section. Each repeat should specify a special ending prior to the closing repeat symbol (see Special Ending Command). The closing repeat mark is ignored after a D.S. or D.C. flow redirection has been initiated.


So if I understand it well:
- Only in a 'local repeat close', you can specify how many repeats are needed
- Only in a 'master repeat close', special endings are taken into account

My questions:
- What if I want three iterations, each with a different ending ? 
- More general :How can one use the 3th until 7th special endings that are possible to mark?
- Is this specific for Noteworthy or is it due to music theory (which I don't know much about) ?

General Discussion / Re: Keeping a note playing?
Can someone tell me more about "barbershop" music, please?
 I'm in a male choir with a mostly 'swinging' repertoire (like "sunny side of the street", "always look on the bright side of life", "The lion sleeps tonight", "the Muppet Show theme", ... to give you some idea).

I have the feeling that barbershop music is something that would fit in very well. Is that correct?
