Noteworthy Composer includes several templates to get started on a song faster. You can see the templates provided when you go to File: New. They are listed under the General, Custom and Rhythm tabs.
If you often use a set number of staves, with the same time signature and key signature to start a song...you can create a template for that.
To create a template from start:
Use File: New to start and create your song file
File: Save As
- Save under the folder that makes sense for your - Template, Rhythm or Custom ( C:\Program Files\Noteworthy Software\NoteWorthy Composer 2)
Now you have a new template the way you want it. When you enter Ctrl+N, your template will be there.
You can also change the templates provided in NoteWorthy Composer and save them as new templates. To change an existing rhythm template and save as a new rhythm template:
Open the rhythm that you want to change - File: New, Rhythm tab
Edit the template as you want
File: Save As
- Save file under C:\Program Files\Noteworthy Software\NoteWorthy Composer 2\Template as whatever name you want
