Slashed and unslashed grace notes are handled differently in playback.

Slashed grace notes of any note duration, and unslashed grace notes a 16th note or shorter, play back before the beat with a single default sounding duration.

Unslashed grace notes an eighth note or longer play back on the beat. Their sounding duration is half the note duration of the note to which they are attached. For example, if an unslashed eighth note grace note is attached to a quarter note, both notes play back as if they were eighth notes.

You can change whether single unslashed grace notes play on or before the beat, the maximum note duration for unslashed grace notes to play back as short appoggiaturas, and the default sounding duration of grace notes in the Grace Notes section of the Timing page in Playback Options.
