Hi Dav,

Can you hide and replace a note with a question mark? I kind of achieved this with the below example. But the question mark is not in place of the note, it appears below the staff. I can use \override TextScript.extra-offset = #'(0 . 4.275) to achieve this but I don't want to hard code the offset as the note to hide can appear anywhere on the staff.

You can exchange the note head by a markup:

\version "2.22.0"

\language english

questionMark = \markup \general-align #Y #CENTER {
  \fontsize #7 \with-color "#6A00F4" "?"

\new Staff \with {
  \omit TimeSignature
  \key c \major
  \clef bass
  f1 g
  % comment to center the question mark
  % on the actual notehead position:
  \once \override NoteHead.Y-offset = 0
  \once \override NoteHead.stencil =
  #(lambda (grob) (grob-interpret-markup grob questionMark))
  bf c'
  \bar "||"

If you want to do this more often, you might define a shorthand (that then should also contain a "\once \omit Stem" etc.)
