I want to write a plugin to set the vertical positioning flag on an accidental and move it to a specific place above the staff. I can specify a measure, or any other region, and loop through to do the job, but I want to apply the plugin to only selected accidentals. Is there an API/function that will return the Note Entry Frame and the Note Entry of the selected note, or is there a note flag (that I can't find) that is set when the note/accidental is selected via the special tools menu?
Thanks in advance,

Pat

You can get the current selection, but it resolves to instruments, measures, and durations within measures, not to notes. Maybe that's good enough for your use? There's no plug-in access to UIs such as special tools note selection.

Thanks. So it sounds like I just use the standard region mechanism. And the finest granularity is a measure, eg the EXTGF. Is that what you're saying?

No, you get duration positions within the measure. But you can't identify individual notes within entries.
