Paranthetical number at the repeat sign
I've searched and searched and I cannot find anyone talking about this.

Is it possible to eliminate that silly number that shows at the top of the repeat sign?  I understand that it tells the midi how many times to repeat it, but this is not standard in any musical score I've ever seen and I'd like to be able to remove it. 

Is this simply one of the limitations of this program?

Thanks!!
Laura

I think you may be using a local repeat ending when in fact you probably need a master repeat,

If you use a master repeat, there is no number in parentheses above the double line.  As a default, the master repeat will repeat once unless you tell it to repeat more times using special endings (and the special endings are only visible on the top staff but you can make them invisible if you want to)

So, when you hit the b key to bring up the bar selection window, use "Master Repeat Open" and "Master Repeat Close"  rather than "Local Repeat Open" and Open Repeat Close"

It only appears on the Top staff, so you could use a layer:
Code: (nwc) [Select · Download]
!NoteWorthyComposer(2.751)
|PgSetup|Zoom:6
|AddStaff|Name:"Staff"
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Open (hidden)|WithNextStaff:Layer
|Bar|Style:LocalRepeatOpen
|Note|Dur:Whole|Pos:0
|Bar|Style:LocalRepeatClose|Repeat:8|Visibility:Never
|RestMultiBar|NumBars:8|PrintOnce:N|WhenHidden:ShowBars,ShowRests
|Bar
|AddStaff|Name:"Staff-2"
|StaffProperties|EndingBar:Open (hidden)
|Bar|Style:LocalRepeatOpen
|Rest|Dur:Whole|Visibility:Never
|Bar|Style:LocalRepeatClose|Repeat:8
|RestMultiBar|NumBars:8|PrintOnce:N|WhenHidden:ShowBars,ShowRests
|Bar

I hate to be picky, but it only repeats once. (It plays once, then repeats once, for a total of 2 times.)  :) Sorry, Richard, I couldn't resist.

It doesn't play once, repeat once for a total of 2 times. It plays once and repeats once  ONCE.   ;D
