This sort of continuous entry is what I think we can and should do for
lyrics, chord symbols and figured basses. I need to split staffs from
voices first, and then sort out multiple accelerator maps (as the
keypresses will be going to the drawing area window).

Can you give a short sample of LilyPond code showing what the output
would be? The output for a single two note chord at present looks like
this:
...
<a d'>4  \bar "|."

How do you add fingerings in LilyPond (three examples really - right,
left fingerings and Fret number indication)?

This may come with what I have - again a sample LilyPond would be good.

?? We have both tie and Slur in Denemo at the moment. I have been
thinking that it might be nice to have some mouse modes, so that slurs
could be added by pointing and dragging between notes - rather like
adding slurs to a hand written copy.

I've not looked closely at that - once again if you can give a short
sample of the output we need.

Thanks for the feedback.
