Long measures
When dealing with a lot of 64th, usually the measures tend to become quite long.

NWC is Procustean: it simply truncates them!

You must be very careful for, sometimes, even passing to the landscape paper orientation is not enough.
The risk is to be forced to print in a very small size, difficult to read.

The solution is to insert by hand some bar lines hidden and bar-count excluded.
But that's very tedious!

The same comes with (long) text.
It would be a good idea to add some form of automatic wrapping.

I would simply use spacers to reduce the space between notes...

In my case the measure is by far too long to resort to that trick.
A measure is easily two rows long!

Would inserting an invisible, exclude from count bar line help?

Yes, it works, but you must insert it by hand and must be done in all the staves.
