Alternative numbers above notes other than custom notehead?

Postby appreciatethehelp » Wed Jul 03, 2019 3:28 am

Hi everyone, I want to add numbers above certain note heads, however using a custom symbol with a number above the note head as a note head to do this creates an undesirable result, as when the stem lengths change, the number's relative distance to the note head does too, which means that sometimes the numbers show up in the middle of the note's beam, or too high above the note- basically not the uniform result I desire.
I have attached an example image illustrating this issue.

Rather than setting the stem lengths to not change, which may create other problems in the score, is there a good plug-in or other solution to my query?

Thanks all, as always!

Use one of the fingering text styles. There are a number of text styles that will do what you want without re-designing noteheads.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2019.1, Windows 10, 8MB RAM, 7TB 7200RPM Storage, Note Performer 2, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others.
