Ah, I wasn't aware of that guarantee, thanks schwa. That does indeed make things a lot easier. Although your response implies that putting the notation event after note-on is a deliberate choice? I'm curious about the use-cases that are better with that order.

Sure, I started a new thread with some ideas:

It occurs to me that there may not currently be away to programmatically update reaper-notation.ini. That's not part of that thread, but it'd be needed for the overall idea of Reaticulate doing things through notation. Really all one would need is the ability to kick Reaper into re-reading the file.

Fair point. O(log n) then. Definitely much better. Although with #3 it can be made O(1).

I'm sure that's a solvable problem. Even if text events aren't exported (I thought they were?) Reaticulate should be able to have some sort of "duplicate item and replace notation events" action, maybe even with the ability to seamlessly export to MIDI if there's an API for that.
