Re: Problems with chord glissandos with articulations and tablature

Hi Carl and others,

Very good job indeed! I'm trying now to notate the chord glissando I mentioned in the first email. The problem is that it is actually a re attacked chord glissando, so I would need to hide some noteheads and the glissando should "jump" to the next note head. I'm thinking in the best way to do this job. What should I do? Maybe I should find other way to notate this action, like an "ossia" with the rhythm of the rearticulation? Or maybe trying to notate this with two voices and then using only the glissando lines of the second one? No Idea!!! (see the figure annexed)

Thanks a lot

Thanks for the tip!

Here's a revised version, with the warning message turned off during the
chordGlissando and back on afterwards:

%%%%% Start of cut and paste section
