Aux notes without trill


I want to have two small black notes (if it’s possible in parenthesis) directly behind a note.
Right now I’m using grace notes but it doesn’t produce the desired result. Is there a way to accomplish what I’m looking for?

Thank you.



Grace notes should be mostly acceptable, provided you hide their stems using the Hide stem property in Engrave mode, though you’ll have to handle the parentheses yourself. You might even try doing the whole thing as a text item using the parentheses and noteheads from here, and setting the font to Bravura Text by way of the ‘Music text’ character style. If you switch off the Avoids collisions property in Engrave mode you’ll be able to move the text item wherever you need it to go without upsetting the staff layout.
