Recently I tried LilyPond, I was told that it has a great output. I think it's nice but for me it's a bit difficult to use. I have an example where LilyPond does better than Finale in my opinion. I noticed that in Finale the horizontal distance between the noteheads is always the same. Unfortunately this means that when I enter some quarters with alterating stems, my eyes see the 2nd and 3rd noted too far from each other. In LilyPond the standard notehead spacing depends on the stem directions, so the horizontal distance between the 2nd and 3rd noteheads is smaller. This way my eyes see a more even and consistent engraving.
My question is:
Is there any setting or plug-in in Finale 26 that can make this type of "more natural" notehead spacing? I know I can move noteheads one by one manually, but it takes too long if there are more occurences.
