I can’t get the glissandi to look right in this passage. I followed the instructions for when the glissando does not end on a note. The problem is that the glissando is too steeply slanted downward. Rather than ending half way between the two quarter notes, it should end beneath the following quarter note.
I like this solution a lot as it is simple. The glissando now look right except that it starts below the note instead of touching it. How would I fix the vertical aspect after rotating it? The angle is right in the first screenshot, but the placement is only correct in the original (screenshot 2).

The rotation property takes three arguments:
1. the angle
2. rotation centre (x coordinate)
3. rotation centre (y coordinate)
Most of the placement issues can be resolved by varying the centre of
rotation (i.e. the 2nd and 3rd argument).
If his fails, you still can freely shift around the squiggly line by
\override Glissando.extra-offset = #'(0 . 1)
In this example, the squiggly line will be moved up by 1 staff-space.
By rotating around the left end, the vertical starting point will be
Rotating around the right end, the vertical ending point will be retained.
No matter how long the particular glissando actually is.
