I did. It does. ;-) Other notation software agrees with me.

It's technically correct. If the G# were not there, it would look optimal.

If the composer says in effect to the performer: "I do not care whether you perform my music or not," we cannot argue the matter. But if he indicates: "I want you to perform and respond to this music," then his fundamental duty is to write his music so that it is accessible to interpretation. When the performer cannot approach the composer's meaning because of capriciously obscure notation, he may in effect say to the composer: "Why should I bother to puzzle out your music?" - Gardner Read

according to Elaine Gould, I believe the "G#" should be moved out, while the two lowest adjacent 2nds should be as they normally would be (the # closer to the D, the sharp a bit away from the C).
the problem here is that the G# is very close to both the D# and the C#. the interval leaves very little room for "normal" placement of the accidentals.

Hi...this is from 2011b.
Please look at the sharps...are the sharps for C and D mispositioned?

Am I wrong in assuming that:

1. the sharp for the C should not be displaced?
2. The sharp for the D should be the outermost sharp?
