If you click on the first one in the Print View the cursor positions on
that note in the Denemo Display. There you see that it has no pitch, it
is a pure rhythm. It would be possible to switch back to printing notes
normally but this way the problem is more obvious - you might otherwise
print the piece out start playing it and then hit the mistake, which
would cost more in time, effort, paper and ink.

Have you got the latest version? (It has the octave change feature). Esc
key while in the Simulate MIDI script should put you back where you were
(background color, key press capture, return to your preference for
Rhythm Entry for MIDI in).

that command is described as: 

Command: Note Names Default Action
Changes the shortcuts for note names a, b, c, d, e, f, g so that they
edit the note at the cursor, or append a note when in the appending
Location: Main Menu ▶ Input ▶ PC Keyboard
Internal Name: NoteNamesDefault

If you still have the Simulate MIDI script running, most of those
keypresses are being intercepted and turned into simulated MIDI keys so
you won't see anything change.

What command did you use? The current version of Lyrics->Delete Verse
pops up a dialog to force you to confirm the choice, if you just hit
return it will not delete but popup a Cancelled info box.

You will need some LilyPond syntax to do that.

 \slurDotted is the syntax for turning slurs dotted you could guess at
\tieDotted or look further in the LilyPond manual
