Musica Ficta

• Jan 26, 2020 - 13:41

I realize that this issue has been brought up before, but I'd like to revive it.
As a musician who deals often in Renaissance music, as well as a composer who writes in what I call a "Neo-Renaissance" style, I would like an easier method of inputting musica ficta: small accidentals located above the notehead. I realize that this can be done by reducing the size, then changing the x- and y- offsets (the y- offset differs in each instance), but a method that's done with one operation rather than three would be nice. Has anyone worked on a plug-in to accomplish this? (I know nothing about coding, otherwise I would myself.)


Hiya- I know you posted this a year ago, but I'm working on such a plugin for my early music editing. I've created a very simple version:

Current limitations:
-must select a single accidental- not a note, and not more than one
-accidental must have not been altered already or be reset to default positioning
-it puts the accidental at the point of two ledger lines above the staff. if a note is very high on the staff, this would be inadequate. You can edit the number in line 12 if needed.

I hope to improve it and post it in the repository eventually. Hope that helps, and let me know if you have feedback!
