General Discussion / Re: Page view

I'm puzzled.
In "print preview" I have just two views. The first one is "full page", the second is ""screen wide" and, in the upper left, there is the caption "page x, zoom y/2" with y either 1 or 2, no matter which way I change the zoom.
It appears that the number of zoom factors available depends on your monitor. I recently upgraded to a 4K monitor, which I have oriented in portrait (tall) mode. If I do a Print Preview maximized on that monitor, it says "Page #, Zoom 1/1" in the upper left corner, and pressing + or - has no effect. However, if I resize the window to only take up part of the screen, then the zoom keys work. Depending on the size of the window, the second number in the Zoom #/# will change. Very odd.

C'est parce-que si on fait une reprise on reprend aussi le couplet.
Pour passer au deuxième couplet is faut une rèpetition, et pout differentier les deux fois il faut le "special ending".
En plus, il faut tenir compte des peculiaritès de NWC, donc il faut ajouter des autres "special ending".
Si vous voulez avoir egalement le signe et le coda il faut le simuler avec des textes.
Regardez le fichier ici modifiè.

No, I do not think so.

There are actually 6 zoom levels (1/6 = full page is visible, 2/6 = about a third of the page, 3/6...6/6 = not useful except in very rare cases). Paging behaviour in 2/6 and higher is also strange as a PgDn/PgUp does not reset the position to the top/bottom of the newly opened page, but remains at the same relative location. But I can now live with it as follows:

"Going down enlarged":
  • Opening: Alt-F V + and immediately 5 up-arrows
  • Going down: down-arrow
  • Next page: PgDn and then immediately 5 up-arrows
"Going up enlarged":
  • Going up: up-arrow
  • Previous page: PgUp and then immediately 5 down-arrows

After rehearsing this like a new piano piece a few times, you do it automatically and end up about where you want  :)

I often work with performers on compositions still in process. The inability of NWC page view to easily accommodate working this way has always been frustrating. Frantically trying to find my place in the music after a page turn  is not efficient or professional!  I usually have to create a draft pdf instead and have the program open for making edits.

I occasionally create music videos in the Windows 10 video app on my computer. It requires still photos or a video to which I either add an mp3 file created from NWC (or most often a live performance of a score created with NWC). When uploaded to YouTube, it provides a clickable link to share with others. This may not be what you are looking for, but it is one way to share the composition but not the notation. It came in very handy during the pandemic!
