Slurs with rests
All

I'm rather sure my issue is already discussed somewhere, but I cannot find it.

Anyway: If you copy/paste code below in a staff in Noteworthy, you will see that I have used stem up and stem down.  What I want to do, is to have a slur for the notes in the "stem down".  Whatever I try, this seems not to work. 

My thought was to first add the "stem up"-notes. Then I enable the "stem down" option together with the slur-option. However, no slur is drawn at all.  If I enter the notes without "stem up"/"stem down" the slur is drawn at the top off the staff and that's not what I want. I did find a way where the slur was drawn below, but then the "rest"-symbols appeared under the half-dotted tones and that's neither what I want.

So does someone have a step-by-step instruction how to have the slur from the half dotted G until the D (and thus the slur drawn at the bottom of the staff)?

... and, in addition to Rick's example, a step-by-step that worked for me immediately with your example:
  • Select all chords/notes except the final d;
  • Press ; (semicolon) - the slur will appear above the notes;
  • Select only the first rest-chord and press Alt-Enter;
  • Under "Slur Direction", select "Downwards" and press Enter - the slur is now where you want it to appear, isn't it?
  • (An additional Marker object before the first chord, added with @, can be used to lower the starting position of the slur a little bit)

@H.M.

Thanks: I was not aware this option (Alt + enter) existed.
