Dotted eighh notes with different stems
In the latest version of NWC2 (Version 2.1) dotted eighth notes with different stems (on different staffs) are not dotted the same way on several notes (not all): the distance between the dot and the notehead is not equal.  This leads to wrong presentations of the music: sometimes dotted notes are shown as double dotted allthough they are not!
See the example in the attachement (if I can send one).

What Rick explains in his examples is:

When the default stem length is used, flag and dot can compete for the same spot and therefor the flag pushes the dot to the right.
When using a different (longer) stem length, the flag and the dot don't have to compete and the dot can be put on its default location.
