Does Extra Note Space mean Extra Accidental Space, too?
I noticed that when I gave a couple of notes more space that the distance between the accidentals & notes increaced as well.  Here's the example
Code: [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Bar
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:#4|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First,XNoteSpace=1
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:10|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End,XNoteSpace=1
|Rest|Dur:8th
|Note|Dur:8th,Accent|Pos:#5|Opts:XNoteSpace=1
|Bar
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

One wouldn't think from this that the accidentals would get more space, too, would one?

The extra note and accidental space is specifically intended for avoiding collisions when layering. When you move a note, the accidental stays in place. The note moves away from the accidental.

But I do believe that there is a slight bug in the extra note spacing in certain circumstances. I highlighted it before but for the record, here it is again.

Enter a quarter rest onto a staff, tails up.
Enter a quarter note tails down pitch B as a rest/note chord combination so that you have a "b" chorded with a rest.

Now enter another B as the next note. (Just an ordinary B, not a chord) tails down

Now, move back and highlight the B chorded with a rest. Hold Down ALT and press enter to get to the properties.

Change the extra note spacing to 3 and click OK.

The "B" in the chord now moves - but it moves directly layering the following B note making it effectively disappear.
Of course, any other following note other than a b and it would be quite apparent what had happened (but incorrect nevertheless).

Rich.

Confirmed.

RestChord does not handle note spacing correctly.

See attached.
