Re: moving notes on x-axis

Hey Mats,

of course I know that if two notes are a second apart one is moved a little to 
keep readability (that's what you mean right?).
But in my example in the second voice, both notes are moved a little to the 
right (still being a readable second) in comparison to the melody and the notes 
in the lower staff.

Well, I hope that was more clear now.
