layers - preliminary testing
This is something that's been on my wish list for a while and I was pleasantly surprised to find it being implemented. It will be valuable when I publish works for classic guitar where fingering can be a godsend at times.
A few points I've noticed so far:
a) The function seems to work well and as expected, although doco could be clearer in the step-by-step setup process.
b) If a list selection of fingerings is made, the layer parameter is only set for a single fingering rather than all those in the list.
c) Some non-fingering objects are required in guitar fingering - text objects such as a positional indicator (usually Roman numerals), use of Barrre and half-barre, brackets indicating duration of the above. These are usually done as text objects which can't have a layer parameter set. Maybe within the fingering palette there could be a fingering text-object that could hold any of these ancillary things, and would be layerable.
Thanks for this functionality and I look forward to it being fully operational!
