Dear LilyPond, I'm having problems with an unrecognized property-type with VoltaBracket. I checked my syntax and even downloaded other ly files from Mutopia in which the property type was used and they all produce the same error. Please send us an example of what you are trying to do.

Take a look at the example file input/test/ in the distribution. I think it does more or less what you're trying to achieve. /Mats Does anyone know how to perform an operation (using the Guile interpreter) that combines two sequences of notes? I'm not entirely sure how to

To find out which texmf.cnf file is actually used, run kpsewhich texmf.cnf The variables to increase are extra_mem_top, extra_mem_bot and pool_size. Actually, the ly2dvi script sets these variables as environment variables which overrides the settings in the texmf.cnf file, so as long as you use

Hi, Here comes a set of files which I hope can be useful. Note that I have updated the lilypond source code slightly to correspond to the current version and look better. Since I almost never use texinfo myself, I didn't really manage to process your example file and verify the result. Feel

Re: Tuplet bracket numbering problem

It seems that some benign developer has renamed the property to number-visibility without even documenting the change in the ChangeLog and without including the change in convert-ly or the example file input/regression/ Likewise, the tuplet-bracket-visibility property has been

Dear Gentlemen, Alas, a correction using number-visibility elicits this error message: warning: Not a grob name, 'tupletBracket'. Has the grob also been renamed? No, but maybe you have done it, it should be called TupletBracket and the name is case sensitive. A complete version of your

Dear LilyPond, I am typesetting Grieg's Opus 46 and instead of traditional Pedals, he used a rhythm bar because of the complexity and unusual rhythms. Is there any way to have a PianoStaff (treble and bass) with a rhythm staff below? How about \score{ \context PianoStaff ...

HI, If I hooked up a music keyboard to my computer, would lilypond be able to write the notes I play on sheetmusic for me to print out? If so, how does that work? Well, if you have some kind of sequencer program you can use the keyboard to generate a MIDI file. Lilypond comes with a

Re: Lyrics and clefs

2002-06-08 Thread Mats Bengtsson
One feature of Lilypond is that it adjusts the spacing between different staves and between staves and lyrics based on the vertical extent of each stave. The problem is that the highest and lowest object of a stave is used to determine the spacing, even though they may be separated horizontally.

One solution is to set the padding (the extra distance from the nearest musical object) of either the text script or the dynamics, using \property Score.TextScript \override #'padding = #4 or \property Score.DynamicLineSpanner \override #'padding = #3.5 or whatever values you want to use. The
