Cue notes

In order to display cue notes (commonly found in orchestral works), one could enter each cue note normally, then hide each of those notes.  Immediately in front of each hidden note, duplicate it with a visible grace note (no slur).  This will ensure that each note will be played on time, and that the staves will all line up correctly.  If you would like to mute the cue notes, I believe NWC2 has the capability to do so.

G'day Bob,
I've used this method myself, the only problem is that you tend to get odd spacing.  It's not impossible by any means, but it would be much better if we could have proper cue's.

Good observation though,.
I plays 'Bones, crumpets, coronets, floosgals, youfonymums 'n tubies.

Warren, I just looked at your file.  I immediately noticed that the notes weren't lined up, BUT, since they're text, I was able to do the following:

Highlight your text (the fake cue notes), go to properties, expression placement, and tell it At Next Note/Bar.  See how that looks.
