I'm doing some Oberkrainer arrangements, and need to use "serpent" segnos, often used as nested repeats. Anyone have any tips on accomplishing this with minimal pain? (i.e. not building it from scratch in the shape editor) Correct playback would be a bonus, but I am not optimistic and can live without it.
...and before anyone lectures me on style, I know nested repeats are frowned upon, but they are both useful and idiomatic in this context. See 416751_detail-04.jpg (571×800) (stretta-music.com) for example.
If the SMuFL support in Finale 27 can handle this and will be out by July, I can put it off that long. Not surprisingly, peak Oberkrainer demand is October, so I need to be done a couple of months in advance of that. In SMuFL, the characters I need are U+E04A segnoSerpent1 and/or U+E04B segnoSerpent2 .
Finale 126.96.36.1990 on Win 10. (I evaluated 26, but found none of the fixes I need, so I am waiting for 27.)
