Hi guys,I've been having a hunt around trying to find some detailed information on selector modification and location of selector files.What I've found is somewhat confusing...First selectors seem to be in the config folder, then they're supposed to be in the ToolbarBitmaps folder (which I don't have), but there aren't any in config either.Now I know the filenames: 100.nwc, 101.nwc etc. but where are they? A search of my entire machine does not disclose ANY selector files.., yet I have active selectors... The standard default ones from my 2.51 upgrade. And where in the folder structure are they supposed to be?There is also a smattering of information about in the beta threads from before the release of 2.51, but no aggregation of information relating to selector management that I can find.So... can anyone give me a quick and dirty guide to the care and feeding of selectors please?
can I reasonably assume that the selectors I do have are built into NWC and don't need definition files unless I want to modify them
If you want to see your config folder, go to Tools Options, tab Folders, click on 'Config Files' and then the button 'Explore...'But you really don't have to know where the selector files are, if you want to customize them: you just have to right click on a selector and then click 'customize...'. I have experimented a while ago and this is what I found out about the selector files: The name of the selector that is showed when you hover over it, is the title in 'File Info'. For selector 6: "Bar Selector (&b)" , where (&b) is shown as (b), which is the shortcut key for the selector.The first staff has as Staff Label 'glyph', and is the only staff in the group '_'. It contains the symbol that is shown in the toolbar.The other groups of staffs are shown as colums. I attached my customized file for selector 6
So... can anyone give me a quick and dirty guide to the care and feeding of selectors please?
I'm not much for guides, but I can answer some specific questions about them.
I still don't know how ToolbarBitmaps is defined - I shall have to assume it is a built in location but this doesn't really make sense...I do know in the experiments I've done on my XP box over the weekend I cannot seem to cause my machine to recognise that location - will be checking my Win7 box today.

I might write a little something and get you to vet it if you don't mind.
ToolbarBitmaps is the right place to look, at least on my machine. It's a subfolder under Noteworthy Software/Noteworthy Composer 2 in the (x86) program folder. Could yours be hidden?
As of beta 37, customized toolbar image and selector files are placed in your Config folder. The earlier ToolbarBitmaps folder has been removed. If you have a ToolbarBitmaps folder, then you probably want to move those files into your Config folder.Beta 37 includes two new mechanism to assist in working with your Config folder:an Explore button has been added to the Tools, Options, Folders tab, which will open your Config foldera Customize command has been added when you right click on a command button; this automatically creates a *.bmp or *.nwc file for the command and opens an Explorer window with the file selected; you can then edit this file as needed to customize the image or the selector
