I have some troubles to write a vocal cadence (it’s an engraving work so I have to respect the original, here attached) without recurring to various work-arounds.
X signature is a great feature but without smaller noteheads, copying my example is not possible with regular notes and I have to use grace notes.
Using grace notes produces some problems:
- no tie allowed, so a slur must be used
- spacing problems
- dynamics as hairpin seem not to be allowed except when applied to the whole group. In this case I had to change the length of a cresc. hairpin and subsequently of a dim. hairpin to get the wanted result.
I should say that I’m using default large note-head, but the other default option is too close to the large one and isn’t accepted by the publisher.
These problems would be addresses or reduced if ‘notehead’ had a smaller option (e.g. ‘cadence note-head’).
Another great option would be an override property for tie, to allow ties to different categories of objects (e.g. regular and grace note) and voices (tie between two notes belonging to different voices).
In case the development team takes into consideration this request, it should be great to have a diamond half notehead available available for all the durations too.
