Hi, Andrew,

This is a ligature (the three notes were connected in the original notation).

The ligature element (http://music-encoding.org/documentation/2.1.1/ligature/) should work.

Hello all,

I'm looking at the following:

[cid:image001.png at 01D0FB88.41FFC6B0]

It seems that the best element to use in this case would be 'line'; however, the line element currently does not support durational attributes (@dur, @dur.ges, @tstamp, @tstamp2) or positional (@staff, @layer, @place).

Is there a better element to use for this object, or should a modification be proposed for the schema?

Many thanks,
