percussion noteheads

Is there somewhere that I can specify the percussion notation type that I want? Single-line staffs are showing up with X notation. I’ve just found, after some extensive searching, and in the end by accident, that I can change individual or selected notes to pitched-style notation by clicking on ‘default’. So I am wondering why, if it is default, do I have to go in and change it?

You need to use the Edit Percussion Playing Techniques dialog, described here.

Wow… hours of fun! Thanks Daniel.
