How to create Cue notes at the beginning of a measure

Postby ggivler » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:23 pm

I would like to reproduce a score that looks like this, I need to do this a couple of times at the start of a measure. Any ideas how to do this on a Mac
Here is the example:

I set a compound time signature for the first measure of 2+6 over 8, to display as 3/4. I entered the notes, hid extraneous rests, and reduced the note size to 60%. Altered the ties with the Tie Tool.

You can do them as Grace Notes without any special work. Am I missing something?

Thank you that worked. Took me a while to figure it out, but your explanation was right on.

They are called "grace notes", that is, small notes that are not included as part of the meter. "Cue notes" are something else.
