Improved hooks with custom dashed lines

• Apr 17, 2019 - 17:55

The example I have in mind is ottava spread over 8 or more bars. It's visually better to use bigger spaces between the dashes, however, the hooks suffer. If the end of the line corresponds to the end of a dash then the hook is almost invisible.

How about enhancing custom lines to have the option of solid hooks?

It's obviously clearer because you have enough of the dashed elements to perceive the hook shape. The default custom dashed look (5.0x5.0) isn't as good. The both look better if I overlay them with | character. It's almost as if the hook needs to be treated as a separate graphic: ¬ (rotated and reflected)
