Adjusting glissando lines

Post by Thomas Eberth » Sat Nov 11, 2017 10:03 pm

I used some glissando lines as a workaround for voice leading lines. This works fine in most cases but not, when there is a system break. Then these lines look very bad.
Is there any way to adjust the glissando lines manually?

I’m happy to say that making manual adjustments to the positioning of glissando lines with the mouse and Alt+arrow keys in Engrave mode will be possible in the next update.

Thank you Daniel for this good news.

Anders, I searched the forum several times before posting. And I think, most of us do so. In my ears "Please search before you start a new thread" sounds a bit arrogant; something like "You're to stupid to search things yourself, but with my intelligence I can do it."
By the way: In your linked thread my problem is not adressed. The minimum length after a system break is possibly only a part of it.

To Anders:

I agree with Thomas. You gave me a snarky reply the other day, as well ... implying that I had not searched, even though I had. Your assistance is great; your smug and dismissive attitude is unwarranted, and certainly not helpful. We are all trying to make sense of a new and exciting notation program, so please do us all a solid and don't post unless your reply lends encouragement and is supportive.
