colliding accidentals
As items on one staff are not "aware" of the ones on another staff, accidentals inserted on layered staves often collide with each other. It's not always possible to overcome the problem by adding the same notes on all layers, especially when one of the notes is given extra spacing.
Any suggestions? 

I' d like to post an attachment to show the problem, but I can't. At the time I was told it was because I had not validated my license, but now that I have done so the problem persists.

When you select a note and Cntl/E, you will have the option of extra space for the note and/or the accidentals.  If you have the same note on layered staves and don't need to show the accidental on one of them, create a muted grace note in front so it won't need an accidental.

!NoteWorthyComposerClip(2.5,Single)
|Note|Dur:16th,Grace|Pos:#2|Opts:Stem=Down,Muted|Visibility:Never
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:2
!NoteWorthyComposerClip-End

You have not done it properly for you're still indicated as a "member".

Here is a situation where you may want to use a Text accidental:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposer(2.5)
|AddStaff|Name:"Staff"
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Open (hidden)|WithNextStaff:Layer
|Note|Dur:4th,Grace|Pos:b0|Opts:Muted|Visibility:Never
|Text|Text:"f _"|Font:StaffSymbols|Pos:0|Justify:Right|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:0|Opts:Stem=Up
|AddStaff|Name:"Staff-1"
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Open (hidden)
|Chord|Dur:4th|Pos:-4,-3|Opts:Stem=Down
!NoteWorthyComposer-End
The drawback is that the sharp doesn't highlight during playback.

This may come handy too at times, thanks.
