"Graphic options..." item of the "Options"
menu lets you select between three color modes for notes. Under
the title "Use of colors", you may choose between:
color: it is the default choice and all notes are drawn
color: Pizzicato handles up to 8 rhythmic voices and each
voice has a specific color. In this mode, notes are
colored to represent their rhythmic voice.
color: in the instrument view, you can select a color for
each staff with the last column of the "Various
effects" configuration. Notes are displayed with the
color of their staff.
version 3.2, you may select the note color to be related
to the chords (chord note = green, scale note = orange,
all others red).
If you want to
freely assign colors (by deciding the color of each note, for
instance to emphasize a theme or the function of some notes for a
didactic purpose), the only way to do it is the following:
automatic justification. You will need to assign the note
position manually. This will prevent Pizzicato from
modifying the voices or to assign voices to the notes and
will let you assign them yourself.
your notes, you will need to use rhythmic voices
according to the colors you want. For this, the little
popup menu "1-8" in the upper left corner of
the score view lets you select the voice. By letting it
on "1-8", the note will be black. The value
"1" will assign the note to voice 1, which
color is red. Similarly, the other colors for voices are
2=blue, 3=green, 4=yellow, 5=purple, 6=light blue,
7=brown and 8=gray. Before adding a note, decide the
voice according to the color.
