Plea for a more prominent glyph
Using NWC 2.5.5,  and NWC2STDA font,
the Up bow glyph prints like a little grey ghost
at 22pt on my HP P1102 Laserjet Printer.

(The Down bow glyph is fine.)

Please, could we have the Up bow glyph more prominent?

In NWC2STDA as a user font, on my keyboard, > selects the up bow  and < selects the downbow.

You are right Hymo.  IMO, the same can also be said for the Caesura.

As I write, NWC 2.51a is the current version.
AFAIK, this describes the situation:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposer(2.51)
|PgSetup|StaffSize:22
|AddStaff|Name:"Staff"
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Open (hidden)
|Text|Text:"<"|Font:StaffSymbols|Pos:6|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:0
|Text|Text:">"|Font:StaffSymbols|Pos:6|Justify:Center|Placement:AtNextNote
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:0
|TempoVariance|Style:Caesura|Pause:0|Pos:4|Justify:Right
|Note|Dur:4th|Pos:0
!NoteWorthyComposer-End
I am not seeing a problem.

Rick, thanks for the re-visit.
In version NWC 2.51a things do look and print better on my HP LaserJet P1102.

At the risk of being labled "excessively picky":
I would love to see the "V" of the up bow as thick as the two "legs" of the down bow.

It seems in going through some of my music there is a little less ink on the down bow and a little more on the up so neither overpowers the other.

FWIW, the same symbols upside down indicate heel and toe for the pedals in organ music..
