baroque trill "+"

• Jan 16, 2022 - 14:44

Is there a baroque style trill in MS?

(I saw it in symbols in Master Palette, so if it is not implemented, I will use symbol as workround.)

Thank You

Note that use of "+' for a trill was never really standard in the Baroque that I can tell. The letter "t" was, though, and apparently this got miscopied as "+' sometimes and then some publishers started using it. At least that's what I see in the sources I've consulted.

Indeed, as I said, this does happen sometimes. But I just wanted to clarify that it isn't a standard "Baroque-style trill" - those are more often notated with tr (occasionally just t) or appropriate wavy line symbols as far as I can tell. The "+" is more of an "alternate" style. Which isn't to say it couldn't be supported someday, but the degree to which is standard definitely impacts the priority.
