Position of objects

Post by OCTO » 15 Sep 2018, 12:17

Is this position of objects (beat-symbols) good to you?

I’d say they are probably fine as is, but it might look better if they appear centered over their respective notes.

I like them as they are, but don't claim to be an expert in the finer points of engraving.

EDIT: Ideally, shouldn't the :forte and the staccatissimo instruction be closer to the notes than the beat symbols? Maybe that's not practical?

You mean the beats?
Hm, that could be improved indeed.

I am thinking about that. IF it is moved down, than I have to re-place the beat information. Than, if I want to keep the horizontal alignment I need to move them all the way up throughout the same system – I feel them being to far away.
