Chords - editing individual notes in a chord
Is it possible to edit an individual note in a chord.
I am constantly making errors and i find them as i am going along.
To change an individual note in a chord it looks like to have to re-enter the whole chord again.
Or is it possible to copy a similar chord and edit and individual note?
Am i missing a command?

The answer is a qualified "yes" - depending on which version of NWC you are using and what attribute of the note you want to edit. If you are using ver. 2.51 or later, place the mouse cursor on the note you want to edit and right-click. This will give you a context menu that will allow you to change the note's accidental, color, or notehead shape, and add or subtract a tie. For any other changes, you will have to delete the individual note and replace it with the new one. To delete an individual note from a chord, place the cursor directly to the note's right and press <Ctrl><Backspace>. (Note that you can't erase a rest in a restchord in this manner - you have to erase the entire chord and start over.)
