Fine Tuned Chord Symbol Alignment
First, I am using the Standard Chord Symbols and the FreeSerif font.
While I am general happy with the placement of chord symbols in MuseScore, many times when using chord names with long modifiers, I often find myself manually adjusting the X Offset in the Inspector so the full chord name is more centered over the note head it corresponds to.
This just looks better, at least to me and avoids crowding in measures with less stretch or several long chord names. I realize I can adjust the vertical offset and scaling of modifiers, but the bottom line is the first element of the chord symbol/name is centered over the note head, so G looks fine but Gm7(b5) looks better if the chord symbol is centered over the 7 or m in Gm7(b5).
I realize there are other ways to express this example to shorten it, but a regular spelling leads to less confusion than Jazz notation and I like it the way it looks with Standard Chord Symbols in the Free Serif font.
I was wondering if added chord symbol placement options could be added to MuseScore at some point beyond those found in the Text Styles. So for example, zero horizontal offset for chord names with one element, and additional offset settings for symbols with additional elements, with more options depending on the number of modifiers.
So for example, you could set up a Style so long chord names could be positioned more centrally over the note head (if desired) while basic chord symbols like G or Gm could be left as is. It would be a major time saver, at least to me when trying to create nice looking scores.
Thanks in advance for any consideration given to this idea or any enlightenment if there is already a way to do this without effecting placements that already are satisfactory.
