Ok I've missed that explanation before so thank you.  I don't really care about the midi so your suggestion is possible (a pain but doable).  Anyone know of a single line override?

I wanted to do a multi-measure hairpin (decrescendo) but the hairpin stopped at the end of the first measure at the forced accidental (!).
1] is there a way around this?

3] is the reason it stopped there different from my assumption.
...from the NM p106
" A crescendo mark is started with \< and terminated with \!, an absolute dynamic, or an additional crescendo or decrescendo mark. A decrescendo mark is started with \> and is also terminated with \!, an absolute dynamic, or another crescendo or decrescendo mark. \cr and \decr may be used instead of \< and \>. Hairpins are engraved by default using this notation.

I guess you might have to place the mp, pp, etc as markups - (but these might not then be seen by midi...?) - if you want the hairpin to extend across the complete snippet ... from \> to \!

Hope this helps
