I am in desparate need of a way to click on a note and choose the note's color. This is different from the Boomwhacker colors in that, I don't want the pitches to necessarily be colored. I am working with an Autistic boy (playing Upright Bass) who is having trouble with the concept that a pitch can be played in multiple places on a fingerboard. So, we use color to indicate which position he should use to play the note. For example, Position I is black, Position 2 is green, Position 3 is blue and Position 4 is Red.
Right now, I use the layers in Finale and have the layers be different colors, but, that totally messes up the stems and other notations (breaks up bars into individual flags, etc.)
So, I would like the ability to choose a note, right-click, set notehead color.
It would seem, since layers can be different colors and the boomwhackers plugin make notes a different color that this functionality is mostly built into the Finale Engine, but just needs to be able to access one note at a time, and just the notehead (and stem) withouot affecting beaming, etc.
Or, for that matter, a central location to indicate Color of postition, then a way to indicate what position a particular notehead is in?
Additionally, we use AlphaNotes extensively since, even though he can read notes, his mental processing is a tic behind and the Alphanotes lets him keep up without that processing tic.
