I've got a nice chord that's composed of three voices: octaved A half notes, a quarter note C, and an eighth note F that's tied to more F's behind the chord. Problem is that with three voices, there's going to be overlap in most cases unless I make choices that could be considered really awkward. Are any of these officially supported/restricted, and which do you think is neatest/clearest?
Version 1; just letting it all overlap. It should still be clear what note has what notation because the half notes have hollow heads.
Version 2; the F moved slightly back but it overlaps the stem. This has my preference but it may not be considered neat enough.
Version 3; the F moved all the way back. No overlaps, but it may not be clear that the A's, C and F are all hit at the same time.
Version 4; the F in front of the chord (should be slightly more clear that it is hit at the same time) but the beam overlaps the stem)
Version 5; which is v4 but with the beam raised so there's no overlap. Feels like a lot of wasted space.
This might seem like a very minor thing but I like to get these things right.
For reference, here is the context, my original notation:
And here with Michael Curtis's notation:
