Tremolo bars are placed to far to the right for "between note" semibreves. See attached score stave 1

Looking at the the tremolo bars between minims, one can see that the tremolo bars are centered between the note stems. See attached score stave 2. The tremolo bars in the semibreve case should be centred between the noteheads.

The tremolo bars on the semibreves seem to be similarly centred on the non-existent stems. This prompted me to experiment with changing the stem direction on the semibreves. Non of the results are satisfactory and some are bizarre. See attached score staves 3, 4, 5.

I eventually found a workaround which is to set the second semibreve to have a right mirrored note head. See attached score stave 6. But it would be better if this was fixed so that the correct placement is made with the default notehead settings.


I used line breaks to add some space/stretch. It could be argued that given proper spacing these work fine (not great) as is. That said, all of us get into tough spots occasionally, so it would indeed be nice if tight spacing of these was handled better. It's odd that they're allowed to collide with noteheads and accidentals at all. (See page 2 for an unlikely but plausible scenario.)
