I'll look into that and the ACCESS_VIOLTION.
if the user decided to keep the old backup system it would be nice if File->Open Backups... worked like File->Open, but defaulted to *.bak
So the latest is always - say - Filename.rec.bak (rec for recent) and then the older versions 1 through what ever number defined. So as soon as a file gets saved, rec.bak goes to last numberused+1 and this then would keep the numbers in order until an overwrite is needed. The latest copy is always plain to see and understand and the numerics wouldn't be confused in time.
The other thoughts regarding the naming convention and folder creation will be given additional consideration.
Each backup file in the circular queue will be named Filename.q#.nwc.bak, where # represents an available slot in the queue for this filename
The filename.q0 convention I suggested in my last post would fix that.
I want the entire note (head, stem, beam, and any associated ties, slurs, and attributes) to be colored. So the best functionality, for me, is to have the color palette choose the color of the following entire notes, not just their heads.
Notehead colourI think the only thing I would comment on (but at this point, I'm not sure if I have a problem with it or not) is:Note head colour xStem colour yattribute colour = stemTie colour = headSlur colour = neitherdotted colour = noteaccidental colour = notetriplet = neitherI have a feeling that all these things should standardise on the colour of the notehead (or the starting notehead in the case of triplet,slur and tie.Any other thoughts ?
Any other thoughts ?
If I play the highlighted notes(only notehead), the "Play Highlight" doesn't appear.
And in beams(included triplet), if I change "Item Color" in Notation Properties, only the stem changes.
The notehead has its own color spec, in the Notes tab.
The best way to do highlight coloring for notes is to place the note, then select it and choose a color for it, either via the backslash key, or by using Edit->Properties (this classic approach supported in earlier releases is unchanged).
I was about to compliment you an how notehead color was added without complicating the property page ... until Beta 13.
I see your point, Rick, but I think the notehead color belongs where Eric put it, on the notes tab of the properties page.
It is, in fact, a property of the note.
I do, however, want to change the color attribute of the entire note, not just the notehead. I am now back to having to do that by layers.
You'll find, I think, that every single-staff method of approaching it either colors just the upper noteheads (I want the stems colored as well) or colors all stems (I only want the top stem of each dyad colored).
What do others use colored noteheads for, by the way? Why, other than granting the ability to identify separate voices, are they something to get excited about? Just curious....
The correction to notehead alignments seems to have put the slur placement awry.and those paired dots in the same staff space are just not right.
