Minimum horizontal gap for rehearsal marks without enclosure

Would it be possible to fix the ‘minimum horizontal gap from other items’ property for rehearsal marks without enclosure?

Thank you in advance!

From an examination of the code, that option actually only takes effect in one very specific circumstance, which is when two rehearsal marks are close enough that they might collide. The only horizontal collision avoidance that is performed for rehearsal marks is between rehearsal marks and tempos, or between rehearsal marks and rehearsal marks. There’s a specific value for the gap between rehearsal marks and tempos to their right, so this remaining value is only used for a gap between a rehearsal mark and another rehearsal mark immediately to its right. Obviously it’s almost impossbile for another rehearsal mark to appear close enough to the first one to trigger this case.

I can see that you might well want Dorico to behave as if a rehearsal mark without an enclosure should still be padded as if it had one, and I’ll make a note of this as something for us to consider in future.

Thank you, Daniel, that would be great!
