Anyone have this? or any experience with using it? I downloaded the demo and it is rather odd. My copy of finale is way out of date and cannot really afford to upgrade hehe well I guess I could but it would take away from buying synths which right now are more important hehehe

I've used Noteworthy for several years, although not extensively. It's certainly not as comprehensive as Finale (although I've never used the latter,) but is quite serviceable. A bonus - cyberhymnal ( has its hymns in NWC format, so these can be drawn down and worked with.

I was recently able to update my several-years-old copy of Noteworthy via a download at no charge.

well I was wondering if there is a quick way to enter notes with the mouse. instead of having to right click..enter note.. oh I need a dotted note..erase..go click the dot..reenter note..etc etc etc.

This will import midi files as well correct?

As with most programs, entry is quickest if you learn the keyboard shortcuts and use the keyboard. (This is also likely to be better for your hands in terms of repetitive stress injury.)

Yes, it imports MIDI files. You can also notate via a MIDI keyboard with a fair degree of accuracy.

i've only ever used finale's notepad because it's free. notes can be clicked and dragged with that. my big problems with notepad are when guitar chords are part of the music, when there are multiple verses, and when a transposing is needed. when music is transposed quite easily with a click, the guitar chords have to be done all over again and they might have shifted.

for free, i've learned to deal with it.

Notepad doesn;t have some of the import/export features I want though :) Which is why I don;t use it. I have in the past though.

just out of curiosity will ntoeworth auto notate chords from what I plug in? Meaning if I put in the notes for a C G D progressing is there a function that I can hit that will auto note chords above the staff?

I use Noteworthy quite a bit. It's a good program, though, like any other, not without its quirks. I don't think there is a way to auto-notate the chords, you need to do that manually with the insert text function.

Noteworthy is how I create all of the sheet music for my website.
