The notes/rests appearing in Gray color is a matter of Voice Select in Main Tool Box.

To attach PDF and/or MIDI, you must open the file first, then
Emailing from FileListView only attaches iwm files.
Once you closed the data, iWriteMusic deletes any PDF/JPG or MIDI files that might be created while editing.
iWriteMusic adjusts spaces for each lines when it draws pages. Because of this, Some undesired shrinks or expansions may occur. There are several options in Settings (located in top right in PageView) to make adjustments. Number of bars per line and/or Staff Size may be a good start to solve this problem.
First of all, we’re very sorry for such issue. The reason could be various, but please check below first.
< Terminate iWriteMusic and unnecessary apps >
iOS may not terminate the app properly when it crashed for some reasons, then then the app won’t restart properly unless you do this. Also, keeping too many background apps may cause issues.
< Restart your device >
iWriteMusic normally starts working properly by doing above.
Please be advised that unless you do above, ANY APPs you ever opened WILL NEVER BE TERMINATED and stay in background. Your device, then, will eventually run out its resources and cause issues no matter how well equipped the device is.
< Unknown Issues >
We always want this app to be bug free. We test the app carefully and remove all the bugs we know at the moment before the release of any new versions. There is, however, always a chance of new bugs that we still don’t know yet unfortunately. The problem is, unless we know what the issue is, we can't fix it. We know you're using iWM in different way with different settings from what we tested and may find new issues. Please email us when you find anything wrong and if you can, attach the data as well so we can find the cause and fix it.
< Auto Save >
iWriteMusic supports AutoSave although you need to activate it. If you want to use it,
Please remember that you can enter notes or rests beyond the bar limit.
For instance, you can enter 5 quarter notes in one 4/4 measure.
All the notes/rests over the limit appear in red color and will be ignored on playback, however,
you can, for instance, write a long cadenza in a single bar beyond the bar limit.
So, in this case, enter a note/rest beyond the bar limit first, then make a triplet.
This file contains MIDI data in standard format which you can transfer to other major notation software such as Finale or Sibelius. You can also play it with most of audio players such as QuickTime or Windows Media Player, however you can not play it on iOS devices. iWriteMusic is currently supporting Export Standard MIDI only, which means you can not transfer MIDI data that you created with other notation software to iWriteMusic.
