Coutesy Notes compiling
Even though the playback is terrible, I want to make a better-looking
score--sometimes do you think so.  Here I'm compiling some tricks of
writing score.  It seems hand-writing-like but on the other hand, looks
so tricky.  Thanks to all NWC users giving advices to me.

Below is my explanation on each.  Hope you could understand my poor English:

(1) Courtesy Key change: Natural before the bar.
Insert C Major (Hidden); Put #/b one/s to be natural (Hidden); Put Natural
the ones (Displayed); Put a bar and new key sign.
(2) Show key(and/or time) change to next staff: Writing twice (very
handwriting-like), using hidden bar w/ Force System Break. 
(3) Smaller clef: Use hidden Clef w/ smaller text.
(4) Restore clef: Further clef will disappear after (3), so put displayed one
on the top staff, using Force System Break.
(5) Courtesy Accidental: Simply put text.
(6) Accidental on the note: For use of writing small score (such as full score
with faster passage.)  This sample includes Hidden transfer, which makes
playback correct.

Possible difficulty is "Force System Break" to adjust each staff.
Get "Try & Error", and make small and big scores for print/publish.
I hope these specs will be available with simple operation.
(Sample is available on NWC2)

Hiroki, thank you for this file with so many good ideas. 

May I make a couple of suggestions, please?

Put a bar and new key sign
   
I think you'd normally put a double bar line here:

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:-4
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:-5
|Bar
|Key|Signature:Bb
|TimeSig|Signature:3/4
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:-4
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:-3
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End


Yes to the first, second and third key signatures here.  The fourth one isn't needed, because it will automatically be placed at the beginning of the next line.

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Text|Text:"Courtesy Key change"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:10|Justify:Right
|Key|Signature:C|Visibility:Never
|Key|Signature:G#|Visibility:Never
|Key|Signature:C
|Bar|Style:Double
|Key|Signature:F#,C#
|Bar|SysBreak:Y|Visibility:Never
|Key|Signature:F#,C#
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End


Instead of this,

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:3|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First,XAccSpace=1
|Text|Text:"²"|Font:User2|Pos:2|Justify:Right|Placement:BestFitForward
|Text|Text:"Courtesy accidental by text"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:10|Justify:Right
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:2|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:1|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

this?

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:3|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=First,XAccSpace=1
|Text|Text:"²"|Font:User2|Pos:3|Justify:Center|Placement:BestFitForward
|Text|Text:"Courtesy accidental by text"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:10|Justify:Right
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:2|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam
|Note|Dur:8th|Pos:1|Opts:Stem=Down,Beam=End
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End


This is a nice trick

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Text|Text:"Accidental on the note--for using smaller score"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:13
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-5|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-4|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Instrument|Name:"+1"|Trans:1|DynVel:10,30,45,60,75,92,108,127|Pos:-8
|Text|Text:"d"|Font:User1|Pos:9|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-3|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Instrument|Name:"0"|Trans:0|DynVel:10,30,45,60,75,92,108,127|Pos:-8
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End
 
but I think text accidentals above the note are wrong musically.  They are sometimes written that way for courtesy accidentals, but I don't think most people playing the part would expect to see it.



Finally, may I suggest adding a section close bar line, with a forced system break, at the end?  Then your last line will extend to the right margin.

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Bar
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:-5
|Rest|Dur:4th
|Chord|Dur:Half|Pos:-5,#-3,-1,0,2
|Bar|Style:SectionClose|SysBreak:Y
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

Thanks again.  Much improved.

Yes, you're right.  But it's my apology, just ignore this one,
because it's a dummy for showing Natural on next sign.

O-oh, that's correct(^^;.  Of course, not need write twice.
But this is effective to write time sig, need second one.
On positioning (#), need to check preview for just-fitting.
Edit screen shows difference sometimes.

I got it.  I checked a score and it's used for courtesy like this:
(use for full score with faster passage)

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.0,Single)
|Clef|Type:Treble
|TimeSig|Signature:4/4
|Text|Text:"Accidental on the note--for using smaller score"|Font:StaffItalic|Pos:13
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-5|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-4|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-3|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:#-2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-1|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Text|Text:"d"|Font:User1|Pos:10|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-3|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-4|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-5|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-4|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-3|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:n-2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-1|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=First
|Text|Text:"e"|Font:User1|Pos:10|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-2|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-3|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam
|Note|Dur:16th|Pos:-4|Opts:Stem=Up,Beam=End
|Bar
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

Fine, it will work.
