Thanks for the feedback.
The things I tried to avoid are:
- slur shoulders on the ending (to much in Sibelius),
- to curvy (usually Finale), particularly when avoiding collisions,
- zero tip-width (so ugly, Finale).

I like more flattened than curved slurs; also, the boldness is higher in order to compensate the balance with note-heads and beams (my opinion). Finale has to thin slurs and 0 tip.
The example could, perhaps, be improved. However I tried to avoid manual editing for this example.

I don't mind the thickness, but they could be a bit more tapered in my opinion. It does look exactly like SCORE's defaults, if that's what your end goal is.

As an unedited example, it is excellent, achieves your stylistic goals, and is probably good enough since there is always a little hand work to be done here and there. Good to know in case they continue to "improve" Finale to the point where I too can't use it any more.

Very nice, odod. One of the Sib examples that actually don't look like Sibelius.
I like it very much, not only the slur settings but everything else.

If you want to share your settings (screenshots), I would be more than happy to explore your approach.

Thank you so much OCTO,
of course i would be happy to share
remember when you finalize the slur, you must TURN OFF the Magnetic Layout

Many thanks odod. But, if you turn off the magnetic layout, don't they move again? My settings would imply as little editing as possible, yet I am aware that the full automatisation is not possible (yet!).
