How to create grace notes at the end of a bar?

Hello. I am going crazy trying to figure this out but i am sure there must be an easy solution. I need to create a grace note like this at the end of a bar with a whole note trill. The problem is that if I create grace notes they need to belong to a note in front of them else they cannot exist. how can I set this up in the score editor please?

Others might have better ideas, but what comes to mind is to use Graphic Notes, then scale them to the smaller size, and move them with the layout tool

Yes, and following the same approach, you could use the Layout Tool on real grace notes.

omg! ha ha!

I see my post has been awarded a solution but I still can’t get it to work!

Please see here

When I use the layout tool as suggested it only allows me to move the notes on a horizontal baseline L or R… I certainly can’t move it up there or perhaps someone can help me by telling me where I am doing this incorrectly?

Ok ok

I got it to work. What I did was to place the grace notes before the main note and then move them to the right with the layout tool! This way i don’t have to move them up

THank you!

In my key editor this is what I have

My grace notes are displayed in a strange manner between the 16th notes. What I actually want is this of course

but you will see that I had to delete the last quarter note for it to be displayed correctly. Can someone help me understand what i am doing wrong. I followed the instructions in the manual as best I could.
