Green notes

Some of my notes are showing as green as in this guitar example.
I think green denotes something unplayable on the same string but I’m notating this way for clarity. Or not :slight_smile: And it only happens a few times. In fact the same passage later on is fine.
I’m not sure if it is something I can turn off but I can’t seem to change it.
Is there a way to avoid it other than notating differently?

Yes, the green notes denote that there are multiple notes on the same string at that point.

Daniel, Is there anything I can do to change this? When I print to pdf the green numbers appear in the score.
As you can see similar passages later in the piece (as shown) do not.

Would it be ok to print in black and white? It may not be “black” but it might be close?

The odd thing is when I set printer options to print in black & white and print to pdf the green notes are still green! I rarely print to paper as my scores reside own my iPad. Very strange.

Don’t do that… instead, export graphc → PDF, and set it to “mono” instead of “color.” It’ll turn out right.

Perfect!! Thanks for that Dan - That sorts out the printing.

Still odd that it happens on some notes and not others.

Sorry that’s what I meant :man_facepalming:

They shouldn’t print in green even if they are displayed on the score green – I will look into that.


To close the loop on this thread: while we weren’t able to fix this in the just-released Dorico 4.3.20 update, we will make sure this is fixed for future versions.
