Colouring notes with their ties and accidentals

A short question re: colouring music in Dorico.

For a educational purposes I try to colour notes, which works fine, except ties and accidentals don’t get coloured. The only ways I found to get these are using slurs instead of ties, and accidentals added as text expressions, which is awkward … is there a better way?

I’m afraid there’s no better way at the moment, no.

Thanks! AND I really have to thank the team for Dorico: it is literally paradise in comparison with all other notation programs (and I’ve been through, Finale, Sibelius, Graphire Music Press, lilypond…)
