Thank you for that suggestion. However I'm not convinced it improves 
readability in the context of the typical scores I'm typesetting. In my 
experience adding new Voices needs careful planing to avoid unwanted side 
effects (I generally name all Voices - it appears that's the road to 
predictable behaviour).

As I wrote in my previous post, I can achieve what I want albeit with an IMO 
ugly construct. If that is currently the way to go, so be it.

Thank you for improving my understanding,
