I don't understand your issue, for me it looks great: <http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/file/t5604/dotted.png> Thank you very much Thomas for your time, help, and explanations!

This kind of command is still chinese for me... And I was unable to find explanations about the ".bound-details" in the documentation... or some similar code to get inspired!

I work with so many internet windows opened that sometimes I get confuse in all the documentation pages. And I was a bit surprised when I copied the *.ly file I posted before, that it didn't work in my LilyPond version... Now it makes sense. I could never have guessed this could have been reported as a bug and that the default output changed therefore! I personnaly like this kind of "old" engraving style with dashed end corners. But I guess tastes may vary :-) Funny though, I am also currently reading Elaine Gould's book and try to engrave her rules in LilyPond. But in case of ottava bracket, I kind of prefer the first default LilyPond output :-) Next challenge: I'll try to code her exemple p.31 where she draw a vertical line at the right of the "8" sign when it is too far from the staff. -- Sent from: http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/User-f3.html _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
