This is great news! Thanks

I took over the gdp redaction of that section so I can see if I figure out by 
the examples you provided. i was actually planning to include some snippets for 
the same purpose, so it is now much easier.
Will do this in July.

I don't know about that one, or about how it was before. My Gardner Notation 
(did I recall the name correctly) said it should always be aligned with the 
middle of the key if any, else with the middle of the time signature. I had 
done some experiments with overriding the alignment (I think it is already in 
manually, but it doesn't behave as it should: when alignment set to the key and 
there is none (c-major) then it aligns again with the note. So far the work 
around is to apply it manually only after you know if there is a key. 
Would be great if you see a way to implement it directly. There have been every 
once and a while questions by users...
