Hello Mark and Shane,

Thanks for suggestion! In fact I was doing something very similar, putting the 
pedal marking in its own variable (though I added it to the bottom staff of the 
piano part). I was hoping to be able to change how the pedal bracket is aligned 
with the notes in the same rhythmic column (basically, more centred). I could 
fudge that by putting the pedal change one sixteenth note late, but I was 
hoping for a neater solution.
