    Yup, it's just a suboptimal workaround for the chord quality.

    This is why having this chord (dim maj7) in the library as stand alone chord is important.
    The other reason is that other chords could be built with a dim maj7 using slash chords.
    For ex: flamenco music often uses chords such as CdimMaj/B

    Jjazzlab (backing-track desktop application, all platforms) has dimMaj7 chords.

    The best workaround I've found so far is using a E7b9/G# (for a G#dim Maj7)

    Now, if we could control the chord inversion............

    Yes, this is another problem. I wish we could have more control over voicings and inversions

    You can also try E7/F. That way IRP will play the E note in a higher position than the F note (for F dim Maj7)
