Sometimes, in piano music, editors add marks to indicate that a note or part of a chord is to be played by the other hand, even if the score doesn't expressely say so.

See the example:

It's important to note that the sign is to be anchored to the individual note, not to a chord (eg. like a staccatto, tenuto, accent...).

It would e a good idea to place the sign in the fingerings palette.

Thanks,

Seems to me we need a vertical line which can be given hooks

That would save having to (mis)use the arpeggio bracket to indicate manual changes in organ music, with consequent impact on playback.

Would it be possible to make the hooks which you can assign to the line from the lines palette rotate with the line??

If this were implemented it would solve 3 feature reqests.

This one.
The request for a hooked line for guitar barre indications.
My own request for an adjustable bracket for keyboard indications.

I would also find it useful if there were a version of this symbol that attached to notes (placing the appropriate bracket on either side of the note). The current situation makes this symbol time-consuming to deploy frequently.
