I’m engraving a ‘cadenza’ (see the attached example) and I’m encountering some difficulties to reproduce the needed layout.
It seems there are two options:
- using default noteheads (not large)
- using grace notes
The first one is not viable. The notes are still too large.
Using grace notes, the size is ok but the spacing isn’t optimal.
There’s also a problem with the tie required to connect the first c with the 32th group.
If applied, in 1) the 32th group changes the note size to ‘large’.
In 2) tie isn’t allowed, being different ‘objects’.
This involves a laborious work-around with a slur.
So, it should be a great improvement to have a tie-option to override the default behaviour and allow connecting between different categories of objects/voices (tie between a 1st voice note to a 2th voice note, e.g., isn’t allowed, but this situation is often present in keyboard music).
Returning to the ‘cadenza’, is the solution to wait for the option to move the note horizontally or to change the note size in arbitrary way?
‘En passant’, slur that connects a grace note and a note higher seems to need some work to improve the default state.
