How to Efficiently Notate "Hanging" Slurs/Ties
So "hanging" slurs/ties are common in percussion notation where the composer intends to let the instrument resonate or ring after being played. This is often notated with a slur or tie "hanging" off of the note (see attached image) or with the text "l.r." ("let ring") or "l.v." ("let vibrate").
I prefer "hanging" slurs/ties over text because it's more common and takes up less space, however, MuseScore 2.3.2 (I haven't checked this with ver/ 3.0) does not offer a uniform "hanging" slur in the master palette.
A way to go around this is to add a slur on a note to the following rest, and offsetting the slur to resemble a "hanging" slur. However, this is inefficient as the slur must be carefully offset to be parallel to the staff and the horizontal stretch of it is inconsistent as it is determined by the individual note, rest, and measure.
Does anyone have a better solution to notate "hanging" slurs/ties both efficiently and uniformly? Or does this feature exist but I haven't found it yet?
Thank you for your help!
