Is there an easy way that does not rely on colours to identify whether a note is voice 1, up/down stem, some other voice, a cross-staff note, etc…?
I’m colourblind and quite honestly it REALLY strains my eyes trying to figure out which voices are which colours.
I’ve been working on a piano reduction, and there are multiple voices/stem directions per staff, and lots of cross-staff notes.
it would be nice to be able to click on a note and have a small number appear somewhere that identifies the voice number, maybe a “C” for cross-staff, and little up/down stemmed note to indicate which it was.
One of the reasons this is so difficult is that on a grand-staff there are multiple voices, thus multiple colours for all the different voices, plus different colours for cross-staffed notes.
This adds up, and it’s nearly impossible to select colours I can see and that are easily distinguishable for me.
For example, I can’t see red or green clearly, so any colours that contain a significant red or green element to them is problematic.
There are only so many shades of blue before they become too close to distinguish clearly.
