Graphical crescendo/decrescendo are not currently supported in NWC. For now, only the text versions of these instructions can be directly placed into a NWC score.

Sorry for possibly making the world's largest bump but what exactly is a crescendo?

So in other words it's like a gradual increase of volume?

Also, off-topic, did you REALLY register in 1994 or is that just a glitch or something?

Crescendo = Growing.
Hence the Red Crescent : it's the waxing (growing) moon.

French to grow = Croitre. That's where the French get the name of their moon-shaped roll from: croissant.
Same word, really.

Were you answering the question asking if it was a gradual volume increase, or the question asking if you actually registered in November 1994? I know the first version of NWC was released in October 1994 but I didn't think that forums even existed in 1994...

I have the most recent version of Noteworthy Composer (1.75c), but it doesn't appear to include a graphic crescendo or descescendo command (hairpin).  Am I missing something?

G'day,

Nope, NWC 1.75 does not have this feature.  However if you look into the NWC2 beta program ( http://www.noteworthysoftware.com/nwc2/ ) this version does have hairpins, OR you could visit the helpful files section of the Scripto: http://nwc-scriptorium.org/helpful.html and look for the file "cresc.zip" which has text symbols you might find useful.
