Saxer, thanks for your input. Some of these I do plan to answer in blog posts, but it’s quite a large assortment of questions!
I know it’s not the point of why you’re writing, but here are the answers. Hopefully they’re helpful to you and others.
— The header/title is named like the song file it is saved, but underneath is written “Flow 1”. How do I get rid of it?
Layout Options–Page Setup–Flows. Don’t show flow headers.
— I want chord symbols for bass, guitar and keyboard… and for 16 bars solo sax. How do I do this?
Setup–Right click on Sax–Chord Symbols–Show for all instruments. Then you’ll need to select and batch-hide the chord symbols you don’t want shown on the sax part.
— The repetition endings need these little wings like in the real book but I don’t know what they are called.
— The music needs too many pages (especially piano for a live gig). How do I save space without damaging the layout?
This is a more complex answer. Here are a couple: Layout Options–Note Spacing, reduce from 4 to 3.5. You can also reduce vertical spacing. Lots of options.
— I want the name Trumpet and not Trumpet in Bb. And if I can change it, can I save that forever?
Setup–Edit Name–don’t show transposition
— I want to use Noteperformer but would like to have my own piano VST for playing.
You can do this in Play mode, manually.
— How do I save my own templates?
You can’t exactly. Save a file and make it read-only. You can also import a flow into a file that is set up as you want it.
— How do I change a C# note into a Db? Is there an enharmonic button (up to the sharps, down to the flats)?
Alt-minus and Alt-equals
— I want to record live but listen to Noteperformers playback interpretation as if I typed the notes in.
— Can I temporary reduce the score (i.e. full orchestra to strings and woodwinds only) when I’m working on a passage that doesn’t need the other instruments now? Like muting the tracks I don’t need and keeping only the tracks I hear on the screen?
Select some bars of the instruments you wish to hear, and press P. You can also create a custom layout that includes only the parts you want to see, like “Strings layout” for example.
— The last bar doesn’t end at the right border of the page layout. How do I change that?
Layout Options–Note Spacing–Justify final system
