multiple voices, note alignment
I am having some troubles with notation:
see attached file "example".
In Measure 1, voice 2 has a quarter note, voice one has sixteenths. This is notated as expected, with the first note head in each beat group being shared between voices.
Problem #1: in measure 2, the top voice and bottom voice do not share the first note head. I realize that this could be because of the dotted note value in voice 1, but would there be a way to manually align both voices so that they share the first note head?
Problem #2: in measure 3, If it is not possible to align voice 1 & 2 note heads, I have a problem with notating accidentals which are manually added (i.e. E sharp, C flat, B sharp, etc). In this example, the first 2 beats should start with E sharp, last 2 beats should be e natural in both voices.
In measure 4, both voices should be playing C flat for the first note, not c double-flat.
In measure 5, again, both voices should be C flat, but this time, since noteheads align, it looks like c double-flat.
Any ideas for work-arounds? I know i can hide accidentals, but is there a way to manually adjust horizontal positioning of noteheads?
Ideally, I'd like to be able to notate this: (see attachment "ideally")
thanks for your help
