Pitched Acciacciaturi After Notes for Correct Notation of Glissandi
A glissando lasts the length of the note from which it comes. Thus, if a gliss has to end whilst still sliding, this can only properly be notated with a pitched acciacciatura.
At present, using an acciacciatura symbol from the Palette is the only way of placing an acciacciatura at the end of a bar, but MuseScore really needs:
(i) to be able to pitch that final acciacciatura so that it shows the player the pitch at which the gliss ends and (ii) to recognize that that acciacciatura is a note which a gliss line can end at. - At present, MuseScore looks for the next full note to link the end of its gliss to.
The example below shows how far MuseScore can currently get. It needs to be possible for the final aciacciatura to have ledger lines to indicate pitch.
An acciacciatura is the ‘quantum’ note duration.
