Hello Peter,

In 2.13.61 half notes in tab notation are distinguished from quarter notes through a second stem. Now I haven't seen this method before – it would seem natural to me to draw a circle around the "tab note", the number, and have only one stem like in normal notation.
The same would apply to whole notes, but of course without the stem.
One may discuss about aesthetics, but I have seen this way of displaying half notes and whole notes.

How can I achieve this kind of notation? Can I?
Yes! See the attached example. I tried to comment what I have done.

I is untested for working with harmonics - should the circle be drawn around the fret number only,
or should it include the parentheses and the angle brackets?

In chords I would use a single circle (an ellipse, to be correct) around all "tab notes" instead of drawing a circle around every single one. This would be more difficult if possible at all, I reckon, but it would be great to have this possibility…
This is more difficult to implement, and, to be honest, I don't know how.
