Best way to resize busy gliss. notes

Postby Hector Pascal » Sun Sep 16, 2018 1:02 am

Hi all,

I have some busy harp glissandi (measured, fully notated). What's the best way to reduce the size of the glissandi notes so that they fit more comfortably in the bar? I have been using the % tool and reducing each note individually. Is there a better way?

Cheers,
Hector Pascal.

Select the notes you want to resize (click/drag), then go to Utilities > Change > Note Size and type the percent reduction. Hit OK.

My top choice is Jari's JW Change plugin.

If you use JW Lua, I'd recommend Jari's harp gliss script for this:

You just have to insert a 7-tuplet and then run the script. Everything is formatted correctly.
