Is it possible to notate slap-tonguing (accent for note head)?

• Aug 31, 2015 - 00:10

On flute, slap tonguing notation replaces the regular notehead with an accent symbol. How can I replicate this?


Probably a few ways this could be done, but I'd probably do it by clicking the notehead, pressing "V" to mark it invisible, then pressing "Z" to display the Symbols palette, typing "accent" into the search box, then double clicking either the accent above (for downstem notes) or accent below (for upstem notes). You can do this multiple notes at once.

Ah, I realized that the Z shortcut doesn't work for showing the
symbols palette. I also don't see "Show symbol palette" in the
shortcuts list in Preferences. I had to open the Master palette first.
It is btw. somewhat strange that the symbols palette has Bravura as font by
default and not Leland. Other than that, the workaround works well.
Thank you!
