Description: In the "breath mark" (or "pause", or "breath comma") setting, make possible to express the pause duration in either a ratio of the note length (as currently), or in "real" duration (seconds).
Definitely useful - especially as Myriad rates it as easy.
On the regular forum (myrscript) I suggested that for punctuation that appears within lyrics, it is useful to add the GLST fragment to the end of the preceding word. This does not change the tempo, but it causes the sound of the word to finish slightly earlier than it normally would.
It should be noted that the "Grand Pause" ("//") mark is not just a "stronger" version of the "Breath" mark (",", mistakenly called "Pause"). The Breath Mark is similar to a staccato, indicating to a performer that s/he should end the note early and take a breath here, without breaking the tempo.
Grand Pause, on the other hand, means an actual pause in the tempo of the music, as if a rest were inserted and the Time Signature of that bar were increased to fit it in. It’s basically the same effect as a Fermatta over a Rest.
