Dear all

In SMuFL Version 1.4 there have recently been introduced new glyphs as "Techniques noteheads (U+EE70–U+EE7F)", depicted unter https://w3c.github.io/smufl/latest/tables/techniques-noteheads.html; the glyphs are yet not available in the notehead palette of MuseScore, which is what this suggestion is about.

The request is to make those four heads available in the shown palette. The glyphs are the fundament of "Rudimental Drumming" notation and used as half and black noteheads (see mscz file).

The benefit of having said four glyphs defined as noteheads in MuseScore opens new horizons to the Rudimental Drummers (and Fifers) to digitize the existing, mostly handwritten literature. This suggestion can be brought into relation with discussions and work on this topic, which was before those four glyphs have been incorporated into SMuFL:
