Hi Andrew, Thanks for your replies. I understand that what I want is, in LilyPond, impossible by regular means, and/or unusual if realized by a weird trick, moving a note-head to the wrong side of the stem. That would be rather ugly, I think.
Still, what I want to do is not my idea. To illustrate what I'm talking about I will have to include two more screenshots from serious publications. and . Different works from the same composer. Does it look wrong or repulsive? Would it really be impossible to realize it in LilyPond? Btw, I just see another posible dirty trick to realize it. Thanks anyway, Best regards, Robert Blackstone On 9 Feb 2018, at 13:29 , Andrew Bernard <andrew.bern...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi Robert, > > It would be unusual to glue stems together as you are suggesting, if I > understand what you want correctly.
