Noting drum hand

Is there a way to note the hand which should be used to play the drum parts?

FYI - I just purchased Tabular last week and so far it has been a great app. I have been using it to put together practice exercises for my daughter who is learning to play the drums.

    Hey Jesse, apologies for the late reply! Unfortunately, there's not a notation specifically for notating the hand used for a drum stroke. The closest you can get to that for now would be using the Note notation to write "l" or "r", but the formatting will be off since that notation isn't designed for this situation. I'm hoping to add better notation features for the 2.0 update that would include better support for notating things like this. Apologies for the inconvenience in the mean time!

    That's great to hear that the app is helpful for you and your daughter! :) Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
