Could we have an acciaccatura after note?

Currently, we have an appoggiatura after note.

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (e04dc04) - Mac 10.7.5.

FWIW, I can't think of any musically meaningful distinction that could exist between the two types of notation for grace notes after. The normal definition of acciaccatura is meaningless when applied after a note.

Just use a regular grace note after, which is more the standard / correct notation. There should not normally be a need to reproduce the specific non-standard notation shown in your example. But if you really need to do that for some reaosn, you can add it as a grace before the next note and adjust its position via the Inspector. Eventually, we could indeed add an option to make appoggiaturas *look* like acciccaturas or vice versa.

I am notating a Godowsky transcription of a baroque piece where the Acciaccatura is after a semibreve (at the end of the bar),so I can't see a way to put it in front of the next note and move it with the inspector.

Workaround No Yes

I found a workaround, a bit time-consuming though.
First add a grace note after, from the palette; then open the "general palette" (shortcut: z) and go to "symbols"; look up for the "slash for stem up grace note", add it to the notehead and adjust the offset accordingly. It isn't exactly identical to the "real deal", but to me it's close enough. See attachment
