I created a hidden djembe line for rhythmic cues on a lead sheet. When I add the cues, the dots are wrong.
In the first example, the rhythmic cue is set to the default distance, 2 spaces. You can see the second dotted half note has its dot offset to the right, which requires me to manually move it in Engrave mode (-7/8 spaces seemed to look about right).
In the second example, I tried moving the rhythmic cue distance above the staff to 3 spaces. This messes up the dots even more, adding a vertical mis-alignment.
It’s not a difficult fix, but it seems like the wrong behavior. Not sure why the first dotted half is fine and the second is not.
PS: Using slash noteheads for the rhythmic cue caused the dot to be placed correctly.
