As the piece I am working on has very intricate tempo relationships, I was trying to use the percussion kit as a “Tempo staff” replacing the text tempo indications.
I managed to come up with a solution I like quite well by using a percussion kit, naming the instruments 40 through 120 and placing noteheads on the right line to indicate the tempo.
I want, however to connect the two noteheads (in the image) with a line to indicate the ritenuto, but when I select the noteheads and set the line attachment to be notehead to notehead, the line just doesn’t appear. Other attachment options seem to work fine, but this doesn’t.
I also tried using a glissando (Shift+O, “gliss”) but that didn’t draw a line either.
Can anyone think of a way to achieve what I’m after?
