Seeking layout advice / improvisation, arrows with text

I’m working on an admittedly unorthodox score with many passages like this, combining un-metered music with segments of improvisation indicated by arrows.

Has anyone found a good workaround for making this more legible? Cutaway score would be ideal, but I’m well aware that functionality hasn’t yet been implemented. “Erase Background Text” on the arrow text would be great too. Or some other way to get background white space between the notes, but retain the arrow in the front-most layer?

Any advice appreciated; many thanks

There is a erase background option in engrave mode.

You can fake cutaway scores, with additional 0-line instruments. But i don’t know, if the work is worth it.
