Hello folks,

What is the best way to write such a length, that cannot be written with dots?

I’m not sure about R1*5/4, and I thought R1 R4 would be OK for that, but:

\version "2.19.80"

\relative {
  \time 5/4
    \new Voice {
      a' b c d e |

    \new Voice {
      R1 R4 |

    \new Voice {
      R1*5/4 |

produces the following error:

 Starting lilypond 2.19.80 [Untitled (5)]...
