Drum scores - support for sticking marks

Hi. I use Notion 6 to score drum parts for teaching. Often this requires including left and right sticking guides (L, R, etc.), especially when teaching snare drum rudiments.

The problem I have is with notating flams, i.e. a grace note on one hand followed by a note on the other hand. This is commonly notated using a grace note with a slur mark to the "main" note:

Flam notation

Ideally the grace note sticking text should line up with the grace note as above; at present it is not possible to do this using the "Lyr-ics" or Text tools - it ignores the grace note and aligns under the main note.

Thanks for your attention,

Thank you for the feature request.

In disagreement click on the thumbs down.

The developers pay close attention to those that are voted on the most.

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue.

This is a huge issue for me as well. I'm getting into score editing and stickings are by far the most time consuming part of any transcription.

I just purchased Notion. I would have thought that this feature would have been included. For drum teachers like myself this is essential. It would also be helpful to be able to add more text  than what is currently offered. I'll be doing more research and contacting Presonmus again about this feature.
