Exponential hairpins

Something I’d like to request, because I’ve just found myself needing it: native support for “exponential” or flared hairpins, such as those found in the music of Hector Parra.

Could you show it ?


The old way to do it was creating a custom line with a glyph on the end for the flares, but not only is this not optimal — and I supposed not how the team would like to do it.

this would actually be useful. Just don’ call them exponential hairpins :slight_smile:


Why not?

I’m not sure there’s agreed-upon terminology here. Does Ms. Gould say something about this?

Does this thread help?

This is on our backlog for the future.

Oops, shabby on my part not to search beforehand. Sorry.

Great to know!
