Ah, thanks, I missed that at the time. I now receive these as they come
in. This series of posts covers ornaments that are placed to left or
right of a notehead. The score I am working with has a form called pincé
which is rather different: it looks like a hand-written mordent (see
attached image). I have used code of the form
trill = #(make-articulation "stopped")

to replace - in that case - trill signs with "+" signs.

I wonder if the same sort of syntax could be used to replace, mordent,
say with some customized bit of drawing to look like the desired
pincé-simple? That is replace "stopped" in this example with something
else that would give the desired effect?
