Sorry, Just tried to open a .SIB file myself using the Scorch plugin. Couldn't get it to work at all, seems to be outdated and heavily depending on the browser. But opening a SIB file in Sibelius (even in expired testing versions) works fine (you can't save or export, but the file can be

Thanks, Joram, That sounds plausible... Talking about quarter tone accidentals: Internally, LilyPond uses quarter tone steps, so that I had to insert intermediate steps between double and triple flat resp. between double and triple sharp. I don't believe that it is of any practical relevance,

2018-04-05 Thread Torsten Hämmerle
Hi Emilio, The strange vertical spacing is a bug... As Harm found out, it's related to a skyline problem: accidentally, there is an extra margin around rounded boxes causing the wider spacing that shouldn't be there. I'm currently dealing with it, so this bug will be fixed in a future release.

2018-04-09 Thread Torsten Hämmerle
Ah, sorry, I see what you mean... If you want the hairpin to stop before the bar-line, you could insert a silent grace note and explicitly let the crescendo hairpin stop there: \version "2.19" << \relative { c'2 e4 g | \acciaccatura { a16 b } c4 r r2 | }

2018-04-09 Thread Torsten Hämmerle
Hi Dominic, This has nothing to do with the acciaccatura (could be "ordinary" notes or rest), it's the "to-barline" property of the hairpin in combination with the spanner ending at the first note of following bar. If you set \override Hairpin.to-barline = ##f the hairpin will reach over into
