Boomwhacker colors on a chord?

Postby jazzmanjim » Mon Feb 27, 2017 3:22 pm

I can get boomwhacker colors when there is one note on a stem. How do I get many different boomwhacker colors on the same stem when printing a chord? Currently all the notes in a chord are the same color.

You can't.
The window tells you what you have to do. Each not of the chord must be a different voice and not on the same stem.

On this page:

is a plugin suite that might help. Colored Notehead Styles. Might be more work than you want.

You are on Sibelius 7, right? Then the plugin suite really is the only way to go. Sibelius 8 was developed further and can color individual notes of a chord, but Sibelius 7 requires the workaround with the special colored Notehead Styles.
It isn't difficult to use but I suggest to apply it on a copy of your score because it adds a whole bunch of Notehead Styles and Symbols that might be difficult to get rid of, if you decide you don't need colored notes.
