Please let me know if I’ve missed an option for this. I have a project which uses playing techniques fairly extensively, often with multiple techniques attached to one note. My understanding had been that the general rule was that the first technique you enter is positioned closest to the note, then the next one is the next closest, etc, but I’m finding with two specific symbols (the open harmonic circle U+E614 and the fingernail pizzicato U+E636) that these will reverse themselves as the music respaces itself, placing the harmonic circle above the fingernail pizzicato instead of below it, which is undesirable to me. Whether this happens or not seems to be dependent on where the note is relative to the stave, but my preference would be for the harmonic symbol to always be closer to the notehead than any other symbols & I’m not sure how to set this.
I have noticed the same occasionally happening with two other symbols (up-bow U+E612 and bow behind bridge on one string U+E627) and imagine it could be happening across the board with all playing techniques.
