Open the attached example. Although grace note spacing comes under "Minimum note distance" (Style > Measure), IME, more control is needed. Where note spacing is relatively tight, the result can be unnacceptably cramped grace notes: e.g.

To correct this is time-consuming: even more so when you have to correct tablature as well.

IMV, there needs to be a new property, "Grace note spacing" (say). The control of grace note spacing would then be under this property, rather than under "Minimum note distance".
