Selectors

Where can I find instructions about Misc Selectors and Custom Selectors?

Thank you very much, Lawrie.
I was hoping for something more "structured", but your link is a good start.

I completely forgot the right click on the selectors.
No to say about the <alt><x> in "customize toolbars".

How many badly (un)documented tricks in NWC, buried inside old threads in the forum!

The linked thread has a lot of useful information about the selectors - including a message I apparently wrote 7 years ago and forgot about. Most of what I learned about selectors, I discovered by "customizing" existing ones and reverse engineering how they worked.

I wonder whether someone has already put together a "how to" that collects this information in one place and gives a few examples. A number of new selectors were created for 2.75 that include some of the plugins I created. In fact, I recall making some small changes to several of the plugins to allow them to display better within a selector. For example, if you put an Arpeggio.ms in a staff with no chord after it, it used to display nothing. Now it displays a "default" arpeggio.

Currently, selectors can only be used to insert NWC notation at the current location. I always thought it would be great if there were a way to create a selector that would run a user tool. Specifically, the user tool code that is present within a particular plugin. Alas, that feature has not yet made its way into NWC.

This is a selector I made years ago.
It contains all items to control the flow.
Since the title contains '(&f), it pops up when you press the 'f' key ().
The selector files are stored in the config folder with names '100.nwc' to '10f.nwc'
If you want to download this example, make sure not to choose a name that already contains another selector.

Thanks, Opagust,
I already had it, from the depth of the times.
