Apropos of nothing, I seem to remember reading somewhere that there should be (or that a style exists where there is) a difference between ties and slurs, but I'm not sure how I would enforce that.
I had a setting that allowed slur to have bolder stroke on one side, they looked pretty good.

I can't see any discussion of why using the Engraving Slurs is a bad thing. I've just tried turning them off, and all the slurs need more work to avoid stems and other things. They all seem to drop significantly.

But some lovely settings for slurs there.

If you use the slur settings John is referring to, you shouldn't need to switch off engraver slurs globally. Certainly, there are cases where engraver slurs will give odd results using these settings as well, but those are rare enough that you can turn the feature off individually without much trouble. In fact, I haven't run into unpredictable slur results (i.e., different shapes at different zoom levels or between screen and print) with these settings at all.
