Enter the note. Special Tools. Select the tool with the asterisk notehead. Click the note. Choose the notehead shape. Slot 192 for me, but it could be different for you.

Queen,

Your original post suggested that you wanted to change one note head. If you have a string of note shapes to change a better way would be Utilities > Change > Note Heads, or the JWChange plug-in.

Using a staff style (changes note head to x) also works well in some situations.
