Might it be possible to introduce a customisable tied note spread over several beats.
 
For instance, in an arpeggio-type chord build up - lets say a 'G' Triad, I would like to be able to do, say, a triplet, followed by a minim - G > G/B > G/B/D > G/B/D with each successive note tied from the first one to the last, perhaps with the option of individually or en bloc (from 1st note of a group to the last).
 
At the moment we are restricted to customising the first note only, but in an instance such as this, it can look a mess.
 
Also, as a further possible development of the same, if pats of the tie could be made invisible, but retaining the tie / slur line through until the ending note.  For instance G > G(i)/B > G(i)/B(i)D > G/B/D.  Although this may not be 'theoretically' correct, it is frequently used in scoring, for the sake of cosmetics / tidiness.

Hi!
Instead of ties, did you tried slurs ?
It should works MUCH better

Of course I've tried slurs - that's how I put together the screenshot.  Putting it together to score it for a printout is no problem.  However, although it may LOOK better, it doesn't PLAY it better, and unless you put a "Play It Smooth" on every slur it just plays it as separate notes.  That is the whole point of having a tie, as opposed to a slur.  When using the  Virtual Singer you can get away with it, but not on instrumentals.  I want it to play as a smooth arpeggio, not as a repeating chord sequence on each successive note.
