Notes changing to red?
I haven't used this program in a while, and today, as I started arranging a piece my choir, I notice that SOME of the notes and bar lines in the active staff are RED rather than blue. I have tried to change them, but to no avail. Please tell me how to fix this!

Thanks.

You probably bumped the \ key when you were entering the notes, as this activates the drop down menu that changes the note color.

To change the note color, highlight one or more notes, and press Alt-Enter (or go to Edit > Properties...). Then go to the Visibility tab and change the Item Color back to Default (black).

Let me know if this works for you (I am running the latest version of NWC, and it's possible you are using an older version).

Thanks,
Mike
