Can Symbols Be Tuned Like Accidentals?
Microtonal accidentals can be tuned automatically by means of a number of plugins, which is great. However, unfortunately, only very few accidentals are available as "accidentals". Almost every microtonal accidental one could possibly want is available as a "symbol", but it's not clear to me whether symbols can actually be made to work like an accidental.
For example, a rather useful plugin I found on GIthub has lines like the following:
if (note.accidentalType == Accidental.NATURAL_ARROW_UP)
followed by tuning instructions for Musescore if it encounters this accidental.
All other accidentals can be dealt with in the same way. But is this also possible for symbols? If so, what code would I have to use? That is, in "if (...)", what would have to go on the dots if I'd want an arrowhead pointing up or down, for example?
Or is that impossible? Can only accidentals be tuned (i.e. treated as accidentals)?
(And a more general question: Why are the vast majority of microtonal accidentals only available as "symbols" and not as "accidentals"?)
