Simile Marks inside measure to indicate repeat previous beat (playback & display) & MusicXML i/o for "beat-repeat" & "slash"
I would like playback to work in addition to display. Currently single slashes can be inputted either via tools->Fill with slashes, or by manually converting a quarter note into a slash by changing head group to slash. But there are other type of simile marks:
The double-percent symbol can be placed *inside* of a measure...according to http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.19/Documentation/notation/short-repeats "Patterns that are shorter than one measure but contain mixed durations use a double-percent symbol."
although that second measure seems to use the double percent to indicate repeat the prior two beats (not one), so I'm not sure if the interpretation is precise.
another example from http://www.dolmetsch.com/musicalsymbols.htm :
another example from http://dictionary.onmusic.org/terms/4804-repeat bottom of page:
The double slash simile mark on a beat indicates that the previous beat contains 16th notes only:
And the triple slash simile mark on a beat indicates that the previous beat contains 32nd notes only:
I realize any user can currently hack this display, but it would be nice to have a proper way to insert these so that musescore internally understands them and can group the slashes together automatically. So I guess this feature is to implement layout and playback for:
- single slash simile sign to repeat previous quarter note
- double slash simile sign to repeat previous beat of 16th notes
- triple slash simile sign to repeat previous beat of 32nd notes
- double-percent simile sign to repeat previous beat(s?) contained mixed rhythmic values
