When the "Color by Note Name" setting is selected in the Workscore Composer
webpage, a note is assigned a color which enodes the harmonic interval distance
that the note's pitch forms with the C pitch within its octave.
Tracking identically colored notes
identifies those that are produced by identical fingerings on an instrument. Using
this coloring can help you identify which note should actually be played when
you are unsure which accidental is in effect at a particular point in a score.
Pitches are colored using this scheme:
C, B#: black
C#, Db: brown
D#, Eb: dark blue
E, Fb: light blue
E#, F: purple
F#, Gb: magenta
G#, Ab: blue-green
A#, Bb: gold
B, Cb: silver-blue
