No MIDI reset when new scores are opened ?
If no specific midi instructions are given, the states from a previous version are kept. So far so good. But, this can lead to unwanted behavior as you will find an example below in nwctxt-format.

F6 or the stop button (sometimes twice) is then a way to reset all the channels.

Is it on purpose that at the beginning of a new score the midi channels are not reset? Are there known disadvantages?
Are there alternatives to avoid the cacaphony in bar 3?

This would seem to be NoteWorthy's view:
FYI: NWC used to automatically send a device reset. This was removed after complaints from some folks who used synthesizers that were dynamically loaded with sound fonts. The reset sent by NWC would force them to reload their sound font banks. Once we removed this feature, we stopped receiving such complaints.

Thank you, Rick.
I will keep using F6 and the stop button.
