Combining regular notes and cue notes in the same chord seems highly unusual to me, and I doubt NWC would support such a mixture even if/when it did support cue notes!
You could well be right. I was thinking about the MusicXML model, and what parameters it takes away when going from regular notes to cue or grace notes, and I think I got it backwards. I see now that grace notes are not allowed a duration, ....
A note printed in small type to indicate that its time value is not counted in the rhythm of the bar and must be subtracted from that of an adjacent note. Large groups of grace notes sometimes make an exception to this rule in that together they fill up the time value of a single note that has been omitted from the score (as in the so-called "cadenzas" by Chopin and other Romantic composers), in which case the rhtym of the grace notes is flexible and not subject to a strict beat.
In several parts of the music, harmony is sung by another person. I would like to show this on the lyric line as smaller notes or "optional" notes above the main melody. Is this possible and if so, how?
I'm still running into problems when accidentals are necessary for these notes. Any suggestions?
Of course, these will be visual only.
I still state that a true "cue note" is by default not to be played - it exists primarily to help the performer be sure when his coming entrance is, and secondarily to be played if its instrument needs supplementing.
However, what is also needed (and supported separately in MusicXML) is a "cue size" - this allows regular notes to be displayed at the smaller size, while still maintaining all other attributes of regular notes (including playback).
Supplement - Something added to complete a thing, make up for a deficiency, or extend or strengthen the whole.
Why did he set the stems to zero length, rather than matching the length and direction of the corresponding note in the other staff? [...] I tried setting the stem lengths to match in both of the layered staves, and it looks much better in the editor. (One slur end moved slightly.)
But I can't figure why the stem of the second note (lower layered staff) is still gray. Can someone explain it? Never mind. I see that that note (only) is hidden. I'm not sure why, since it was headless, with zero length.
