Flat provides two ways to color the notes heads, automatically and manually. These tools are available in our editor for our Flat Power and Flat for Education users.
|Automatic notes color||Document > Layout settings > Notes heads|
|Manual notes color||Note|
Automatically color your notes heads
Flat provides an automatic colorization if you use Boomwhackers instruments: we automatically apply Boomwhackers colors to the all the notes heads of your sheet music.
Manually color your notes heads
You can manually change the color of one or multiple notes using the tool available in the Note toolbar. This tool allows to choose among a preset of colors and also use the color picker to use any color you want.
Put your cursor on a note to change a single note color, or select multiple notes to apply a color on a range of notes.
Use the transparent color tool to create empty measures
You can use the transparent color from the color picker to create empty measures with hidden rests and notes. This is useful for example to make worksheets to print.
