Mix shape notes and regular notes?

A shape-note-hymnal client is requesting some songs show the melody line as shape notes, and the accompaniment as regular notes.

It certainly makes sense, since pianists don’t really need or want shape notes.

What would be the most efficient way of doing this? Custom notehead sets, I guess?

Serendipitous! I was just going through this debate myself last night and after trying a few different things I concluded that yes, custom noteheads was the easiest and fastest thing to do. Some Dorico features are just the best!

Can you use one of the pre-defined notehead sets? (Edit>notehead>scale degree…)
There was a thread a few months back on this…

That’s it! Thanks.
