Print Group and Play Group
Using Groups and creating symbols with Insert: Text has been covered in several individual tips, but it may be helpful to sum up the ideas.

It is possible to create text symbols with Insert: Text like tr~~~~ for trill or { for arpeggiating chords. It is also possible to notate how a trill or an arpeggiating chord would play back.

Using groups in NoteWorthy Composer, you can create a Print/Display Group using Insert: Text for the symbols. Then create a Play Group where you notate the symbols. A staff is placed in a Group with Staff: Staff Properties, General tab, Group. Use File: Page Setup, Contents to select the staves to display and the staves to print.

The sample song file moonlite.nwc is a good example of using a Print Group and a Play Group.
