That works splendidly! I never knew about before-line-breaking before. Thanks.

Also for the other responses, sorry if I didn't explain it very well.
This is the only way I've seen triple (and quadruple) stops notated so
I thought it would be self-explanatory. Thanks for the other examples.
I hadn't seen it notated like that before (I'm not a string player).
I've attached a picture of the particular chord I was working on (for
viola, alto clef, in 3/4). In this case I want to keep it explicitly
notated and all in the same voice.
