Re: Force Lilypond to preserve vertical order of TextScripts?

2018-02-18 Thread Torsten Hämmerle
Hi Joram, TextScript.script-priority has a default value of 200. Each concurrent TextScript will be counted up (starting with 200+0 = 200, 200+1 = 201, 200+2 = 202, etc.) by default. The smaller the number, the closer to the notehead. So, by default, LilyPond will keep the order of TextScripts

Hi Kieren, Sometimes, the order of stacks /is/ important and you even can't always put them together into a \markup column: Fingering, for example, uses script-priority, too. This time, it does not depend on any input order, but the script-priority is calculated from the Y-position of the

How about script-priority? I always thought that concurrent (Text)Scripts will be internally numbered by counting up script-priority in the order given and the first (Text)Scripts will be printed closest to the noteheads (depending on whether the scripts are above or below the stave). So, even

Hi Robert, The main problem is the baseline-skip within the columns, i.e. the lines of text are too far apart from each other. If the default skip is too wide, inserting positive \vspace can only make it worse (by the way, it's also possible to insert negative \vspace). The "proper" and most
