Damping harp strings
I play the wire strung harp and would find it very helpful if there were an easy way to mark when strings needed to be damped. Something like this:
After some discussion in the support forum, I have tried using silent notes with different heads, grace notes, notes in different voices, pasting images etc., but all of these have some drawbacks. They are all rather time consuming, requiring a lot of offsetting, and most cause unnecessary degrees of disruption to the spacing and appearance of the other notes.
Ideally it would be possible to have the mark just before or after a note (immediately adjacent to the note, rather than after a notes duration) and it would place on the stave like a regular note, automatically creating ledger lines where required, but not interfering with playback (I hope I'm communicating the idea clearly enough, as I'm not particularly fluent in general musical terminology). Being able to add fingering as with normal notes would also be useful.
Would something like this be feasible?
