Notice: This object plugin requires NWC 2.75a, which is currently in beta. It cannot be used in Version 2.75.
Actually, it requires beta 5.

The text 'eats' the start of the line. This is espacially annoying when you set Front Cap to 'stroke' or 'arrow'. I would prefer the text above the line.

Agree, but if it's not a big problem, I would prefer an option to set the text above the line. ;)

This also gives you control over the distance between the text and the line, as well as the horizontal alignment options that a Text object has.

"Note span"...
Notes and rests, indeed.

MMRs are always an afterthought. :(

The plugin has now been updated to handle them properly.

Updated to take advantage of the new features in NWC 2.75a Beta 6.

How about an option to have the text break the bracket in the center? That way, this object could be used to create tuplet brackets.

That's an interesting idea; however, did you know that @Lloyd has already created this object?
