i’d love to be able to natively swap the position of “poco”, “molto” and “poco a poco”, maybe via engraving option or properties panel.
Me and my publisher(s) are so much used to read “cresc. poco a poco” instead of “poco a poco cresc.”, same with “dim. molto” but also “accel. poco a poco” or “rit. molto” so it is also true for gradual tempo changes.
Besides from publishers housestyles this request has practical reasons for the musician.
The first word is the most attracting as you read the action you have to undertake followed by the gradual relativization.
This is more relevant in faster tempos and over shorter musical distances.
I haven’t checked: Is it possible to swap “sub. forte” to “forte sub.”? Same reason…
Thanks for hearing me
