Hi Harm,

I think have a slight misunderstanding here. I don’t think it is
primarily a viewer artifact. IIUC, the horizontal dots are aligned on
the left boundary and they just end wherever they have to on the right.
So I see no reason why they should be aligned by design.
You can add and remove notes under the ottava bracket to get a different
length of the bracket and I guess you will see misaligned top-right
corners with all viewers (I suppose).

Sometimes the last gap is a little too wide (perhaps hardly noticable
like in foxfanfares last image). Sometimes two dots overlap and
sometimes it’s just perfect.

I guess not all viewers are perfectly drawing this from the pdf line
specification or why else should there be a difference?

As I said, I think it’s a question where the line starts: on the left or
on the right and then it’s kind of luck how they meet in the corner.
