Playing technique position


In the process of issuing a new version of an old piece, I used Dorico instead of the original Finale file.
I have this issue with a symbol I need to indicate a movement on a guiro.

Now, I did this using create playing technique and I need the symbol to by placed before the actual note it is attached to (not easy to work in this editor I must confess…)

But, the result is not very good. As you can see, the symbol changes vertical position according to the presence or not of rests.

How would you go about this ?

Thanks for your help !

Why not use the relevant jazz ornament?


I knew asking was the way to go :smiley:
