Adjust rest position in drum parts?

How can I position rests vertically within a DrumVoice in a simple way?  There are conflicts with rests in other DrumVoices.  The use of \rest as within a Voice doesn't work for me; it gives

 error: unrecognized string, not in text script or \lyricmode cymr4 sn8
                                                                                                            a8\rest ....
Charlie

PS.  I looked a long time but couldn't find it in the docs or on line.

What I would also encourage you to do is to send an email to Wilbert or
add your suggestions to Frescobaldi's own tracker to maybe say why it
isn't a good choice.

https://github.com/wbsoft/frescobaldi/issues

As an all-in-one editor for LilyPond it really is nice (and
cross-platform) and Wilbert is very responsive.

Is there any particular reason that your student cannot 'keep it simple'
and use a text editor or lilypad that comes with a mac (which is very
simple but does the job)?

You would have 3 windows (editor, log and Preview.app for output) but I
am not sure (not being blind) how much more cumbersome that is that an
all in one IDE that has multiple windows.

On Windows I just use notepad++

2.19.14: lost ability to add note name in fret board ?


in 2.19.13, i was able to use this notation to show the note "g" in the dot
of a fretboard.
        (place-fret 4 0 "g" )

2.19.14 added the ability to add color but it seems i lost the ability to
add notes name.
        (place-fret 4 4 "e" blue)

see attached sample.

chord_pattern_sample.pdf
<http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/file/n166644/chord_pattern_sample.pdf>  

I am ultimately trying to typeset chord patterns like this:

Re: Spanner.center.text property?

Hi David et al.,

What’s the current status on “measure-attached spanners”?
<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2013-12/msg01032.html>

I’m trying to get my musicals/* code base ready to donate to openlilylib, and would love to have this in
there (and available for me, too!).

Thanks,
Kieren.

HELP: Editor for Blind People

Hi all! I'm trying to help one of my students who is blind. He will be soon
taking courses where he's going to be asked to produce arrangements in the
form of printed scores.

My problem is that I can't find the right editor for him. I need help to
choose the most appropriate one. Here's what I need to sort out:

1. He will need to be able to navigate quickly between the documents, the
log and the midi player
2. The log has to be readable (in Frescobaldi you can't place a cursor in
the log and navigate through it as in a text document)
3. The editor must have the ability to jump directly to the line where an
error is located, and from there to the next error, if there is more than
one.

I have tried with Frescobaldi and Elysium but none seems a good choice.
Emacs and Vim are possible candidates but there's little information about
them. Also, I would need soom help on how to install any of them (they seem
pretty complicated to set up

I would appreciate very much any help!

Antonio

Automatic fit-to page staff spacing help

I currently use something like this to help space out staves evenly on a page:

\paper {
 system-system-spacing = #'((basic-distance . 1.0) (padding . 8))
}

Example without: http://lilybin.com/n8jjn6/1 

And with system-system-spacing stuff (how I want it to appear):

http://lilybin.com/n8jjn6/2

Is there a better or automatic way to just have LilyPond automatically use all available space on a page and space staves evenly instead of having to specify the system-system-spacing?

Printed manuals, why not?

Hi, I would be glad to have the option to buy printed manuals for LilyPond; I
thought of making it from some printing service, but for a 834 page book I
should pay 40 Euro, something like 55USD. It could  (maybe) be something to
have a contribution. Has no one thought about this? Thanks.

Problem with \showStaffSwitch

Hello folks,

I’d like to obtain the following, in which the piano right hand has two notes written on the left hand staff.

It’s my understanding that the fis2 and fis4 belong to the voice containing the gis4 in the previous bar and fis4 in the next one (key is B major):



I’ve tried the following in « PianoRHVoiceTwo » for this bar:

<<
  {
  cis4 b8 [ ais ] b4
  }

  {
  \new Voice {
    \voiceOne
    \showStaffSwitch
    \change Staff = down
    fis2 fis4
    \change Staff = up
}
}
>>

with:

     \new PianoStaff <<
          \context Staff = "up" <<
               \context Voice = "PianoRHVoiceOne" { \voiceOne \PianoRHVoiceOne }
               \context Voice = "PianoRHVoiceTwo" { \voiceTwo \PianoRHVoiceTwo }
               >>
          \context Staff = "down" <<
               \context Voice = "BassVoice" { \BassVoice }
               >>
          >>

but the lines showing the switch are missing:


Thanks for the help!

JM

PS> How keyboard players can read such things, not to mention play them, is something that totally escapes me…

how to force extra accidental in this case

Dear community,
how can I force an extra accidental in the upper voice in the below quoted context?
I would like to do it in the defintion of the variable called accidentals.

\version "2.18.2"


Uppernotes = { \repeat "unfold" 8 { cis'8 } }

accidentals = { s2 s!4 s } % doesn't work


LowerMusic = { r2 c'!8 r r4 }

UpperMusic = { \context Voice << { \Uppernotes } {\accidentals } >> }


\score {

\new PianoStaff

<<

\new Staff \UpperMusic

\new Staff \LowerMusic

>>

}

Same distance staff in a book.


Dear People,
I'm very happy with lilypond!

Have a question about the staff distance in a \book
In pieces of music where there are less staffs, lilypond fills up the complete page withe more white space
between the staffs, 
this has not my preference and would lke to see the same distance between all staffs.

Trued to do that with 

markup-system-spacing #'basic-distance = #10
system-system-spacing #'basic-distance = #10

...inside the \paper {} variable.

But there was no change...

How should this be done?

Thank you in advantage!

Peter
