I forgot to say, that thats "from left to right" writing
contains a cursor you can control with the keyboard (or
mouse) to place the items on staffs. Including marking,
copy&paste, delete etc.

What makes the NWC most interesting is its open way of
writing. Many programms are Bar-based so you can't just
write 4/4 in front an then make 5 quarter notes in a bar.
So these programms check if you're "correct". That is
not necessary.

What makes NWC so usefull is, that you just write from
left to right like normal letters. Writing notes,
placing barlines or rests... it doesn't matter.
The staffs are under each other.

No pagebreak, just scrolling.

Here from Wikipedia,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noteworthy_Composer

"A prominent feature of the user interface is the way
that notation is displayed during editing. Each staff
proceeds linearly from left to right, without being
wrapped to the screen. Staff systems are visually
broken to fit margins during page layout, allowing many
possibilities at "print time", so solo instrument or
full conductor are easy to produce in seconds with the
same file. Many users prefer this editor layout over
the so-called WYSIWYG editors because slowdowns in note
entry, as the composition becomes larger, are much less
dramatic than in WYSIWYG editors."
