Optional notes (parenthesis around a note)

• Sep 19, 2013 - 09:27

I am using the program (1.3) for drumset scores. I have found ways to do most of the notation I need, but one thing (so far) eludes me. There are times when I want to mark a note as 'optional' or 'ghost' by putting parenthesis around it. As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this, although you can put parenthesis around an accidental. Could this be expanded to put the parenthesis around a note on the drum staff?



Ghost notes are often notated with small notehead in my country (France). You can right click a note -> note properties -> small.
If you want to put parenthesis, press Z and drag and drop the ( and ) on the notehead.
