Accordeon register symbols

I cannot find accordeon register symbols. Is it known when these are added?

You can copy and paste them into Shift+X text: first set the character style to ‘Music text’ using the menu in the top-right corner of the editing popover, then copy and paste the symbols you want from here.

Thank you very much!
I found 3 register symbols which are not listed in SMuFL. There are from the accordeon arrangement of a piano piece of my. The arrangement is made by accordeon docent of a German conservatory and will be published soon.

Can you define what those accordion register symbols mean?

I have to ask.

Hi. I’m an Accordionist based in Melbourne Australia. I just wanted to follow up this post about accordion register symbols. They are used to indicate reed combinations (on treble and bass side of the instrument) and form an integral part of the score. As far as I can see Dorico does not currently have them as an option. Is this something that can be remedied?

As Daniel wrote, you can add them as text objects, using symbols from the online SMuFL definition. Of course, such text objects are not playback-savvy, but at least you can use them in print.
Whether the available symbols are complete for every type of accordion, I can’t tell. If you miss some, it’s a good idea mentioning it here, and document their use. The SMuFL standard is updated with new symbols from time to time.

I would create Playing techniques using those glyphs. Quite easy to do. And if you save them as default, they will be there for any new document that could need them. I actually think it could be useful to have them in an accordion category, from scratch. Maybe in a forthcoming update ?

Much better, you’re right.

I’d be willing to add these to MusGlyphs if there’s a need for them. Then they could be typed in as simple text objects.
