Ties, Slurs, and Voices Again!

I'm haven't problems with ties, slurs, and voices again, but the previous answers don't seem to help.

I have a situation when I have basically two chords, except that the top voice moves in a different rhythm from the other two.  Plus the inner voice needs a slur and the lower voice needs a tie.  This is the closest I've gotten:

\version "2.18.2"

\language "english"

{

 \time 5/4

 \key af \major

 <af df' f'>4 <g bf ef'> <c' ef' af'>

 <<

  { bf'8 ( [ ef'' ] c'' ) }

  \\

  {

  <<

   { g'4 ( af'8 ) }

   { ef'4 ~ ef'8 }

  >>

  }

 >>

 r8

}


If you render this, the inner slur and the lower tie are right next to each other on the bottom.  I want the slur moved up so that it touches the heads of the inner voice's notes.  Any ideas?

woodwind-diagram problem

I am having problems using the woodwind-diagram feature on lilypond.  I have 
tried the snippet code:

c1^\markup {
  \woodwind-diagram #'piccolo #'((lh . (gis))
                                 (cc . (one three))
                                 (rh . (ees)))
}

But I get the following error: "fingeringtext.ly:276:2: error: unknown escaped 
string: `\woodwind-diagram'"

Any help or suggestions are much appreciated.

PercentRepeatCounter font-encoding

Hi LilyPonders,

I don't understand why the following code :

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\version "2.16.2"

\include "LilyJAZZ.ily"


{

   \jazzOn

   \set countPercentRepeats = ##t

   \override Staff.PercentRepeatCounter #'font-encoding = #'LilyJAZZText

   \repeat percent 2 { c'1 c' }

}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%


has no effect on the counter font.

Anyone ?


Cheers,

Pierre

Lilypond for Klavarskribo?

I think it would be marvelous when Lilypond could be used to write 
Klavarskribo notation. Klavarskribo is the second music notation in the world 
with many users notably in the Netherlands.
Has someone interest in creating Klavarskribo support for Lilypond?

Possible bug: grace note/piano staff/repeat

I may have found a bug in LilyPond 2.18.2 but since I'm new to typesetting I want to run it past the list first.

The problem is a grace note that is inside a repeat appears outside of it.  There seems to be four things that have to happen at once:
  1. Multi staff (Piano Staff in my case).
  2. Repeat
  3. First note of one hand is a grace note
  4. The other hand does not have a grace note.
Here is the shortest source file I could construct that illustrates the problem.  If I should be doing something differently, please tell me.

\version "2.18.2"

upper = \relative c' {

| c c c c

\repeat volta 2 {

| c4 c c c

|

}

}

lower = \relative c {

| c c c c

\repeat volta 2 {

| \acciaccatura d8 c4 c c c

|

}

}

\score {

\new PianoStaff <<

\new Staff {

\clef treble

\upper

}

\new Staff {

\clef bass

\lower

}

>>

}

Mac testers needed for Frescobaldi!

Dear Frescobaldi&LilyPond&Mac users,
as some of you may know, I'm trying to make Frescobaldi more
Mac-friendly, by packaging it as a native application bundle inside a
standard DMG disk image.

I would be very grateful if you could test the experimental
application bundle I prepared and report the results and your version
of Mac OS X, especially if you are running 10.7 (Lion) or higher. [1]

You can find a DMG disk image containing the application bundle at
https://www.dropbox.com/s/o4o65629jv9ytw4/Frescobaldi-2.0.16-dev-20140421.dmg

The test should be harmless: the only collateral effect is that any
change you'll make to the settings inside this application bundle will
be picked up by your usual installation of Frescobaldi, since they'll
share the same preferences file. [2]

Anyway, please be aware that this application bundle is considered
experimental and is built from a development version of Frescobaldi,
so it isn't suitable for everyday use: after the tests I advise you to
delete the application bundle and wait for the next release. [3]

Best wishes.
Davide

[1] My machine runs 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and I currently have only
occasional access to a 10.8 (Mountain Lion) machine.

[2] Actually, if your usual version of Frescobaldi is older than
October 2013, your settings will become inaccessible from that
version, while they will still be accessible from versions of the
program newer than that date.
But if you're running such an old version, you should seriously
consider updating to a newer one: Frescobaldi has improved a whole lot
in the last months!

[3] To avoid messing with your current setup (except for the settings
changes) and forgetting to delete the application bundle after the
test, you can run the application directly from the disk image,
without copying it to the /Applications directory.

Interestingly, Elaine Gould knows what you are talking about but also doesn't know their name:
A verbal instruction may indicate that notes are to be taken with the other hand. ... Alternatively, such notes may be shown with an incomplete bracket, extending vertically from the notehead upwards for right-hand notes, downwards for left-hand notes. (at p. 305)

You can make the symbols with postscript markup, but if you want the symbols next to the notehead then they would have to be moved from the default markup position:

\version "2.19.4"


rh = \markup { \postscript #"0.18 setlinewidth 0 0 moveto -1 0 rlineto 0 2.5 rlineto stroke" }

lh = \markup { \postscript #"0.18 setlinewidth 0 0 moveto 0 2.5 rlineto 1 0 rlineto stroke" }


\relative c'' {

c^\rh

c^\lh

}

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

Orchestral score: bottom staff position

Hello LilyPonders,

I am current writing a orchestral score with a lot of instruments on it,
meaning that I will always have only a single system per page (no hidden
staves). The thing is, the distance between the bottom staff (the Double
Bass in my case) and the bottom of the page keeps changing from page to
page. I am looking for a way of keeping it constant, i.e. always expand the
whole system until the bottom, so the distance between the last staff and
the bottom of the page will be effectively only the margin. In summary,
something similar to what ragged-bottom does, but concerning staves and not
systems. 

I thought the answer would lie somewhere in 4.4.1 Flexible vertical spacing
within systems or 4.1.4 Flexible vertical spacing \paper variables, but I
simply cannot find it. Could anyone please point me in the right direction?
Thank you very much.

Regards,
Gilberto

Move tie to the end(top) of the stem

I have a piece I'm typesetting where an internal voice needs a tie, but \tieDown isn't enough.  The tie spanner needs to be at the bottom (in this case) of the stems.  Here is a snippet that illustrates the problem:

\version "2.18.2"

\new Staff {

\key bes \major

\time 5/4

<<

{

<aes aes'>4 <bes bes'> <aes aes'>

<bes bes'>8[ <c' c''> <ees' ees''> <bes bes'>]

} \\

{

\override Stem.length = #8.0

\stemDown ees'2. ees'4 ~ ees'8 r8

}

>>

}

Organ Fingering Notation

Hi All - New to the list but have used lilypond for years.  I have been 
setting some baroque organ works for some of my students.  There is a 
fingering symbol that I don't know the name of (and so it is hard to look up 
in the documentation without a name) ... I'm hoping that if I describe it, 
someone in the musical typesetting world will know its name and can point me 
to how to recreate it in lilypond ...

If I want the alto voice on the treble staff played with the left hand there 
is a symbol that looks like [ without the bottom line and if I want the note 
on the bass clef played with the right hand its a [ without the upper line 
...

Anyone know what I'm "talking" about?

Thanks

Zack
