Re: Triplet across beat?

Ok, I’m not a professional engraver but looking at A before reading your post I simply thought “WTF”. B is much more understandable in this case IMO. Dotted notes under a triplet make it hard for me to see immediately when the a should sound. I tried to make an alternative version of A/B, see attach...

Re: Metrico: Font for metric equations

It does work for me in LibreOffice (6.3.4 on Manjaro Linux). It just doesn’t have quarter triplets (3qqq), only a single quarter triplet (3q) and eighth triplets (3eee). The display in LibreOffice is not optimal (it is cut off above the regular line height) but print preview, pdf export and print al...

Re: Metrico: Font for metric equations

Metrico seems not to support quarter triplets. The other notes are cut off in display but print and print preview are correct.

Partial measures: accidentals

Hi everybody,

do I have to repeat the :n after the double barline in the middle of m. 43? I think so but I’m not 100% sure.

And how about accidentals after line breaks in the middle of a measure?

Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

Hi everybody, I’m setting some piano variations and have some questions about partial measures: If a variation ends with a full measure and the next starts with an anacrusis, how should the anacrusis be numbered? In my case, the last measure of var. VII (numbered 131) is full, so I’m not sure whethe...

Re: Where to put this dot?

The second option looks most logical to me (and to LilyPond, it’s the default behaviour), however there is a third option:

Edit: You might argue that the dot is ambiguous but who would really expect a dotted sixteenth under these circumstances (4/4 time, “default” beaming of 16 16ths, …)

Re: Has anyone read the following books? (Boustead, Mender, Chlapik)

I read Chlapik a while ago but none of the others so I cannot compare ;) (only parts of Gould and some pages of Read)

Re: Octave transposing clef design?

I'm working with a composer who is making extensive use of octave transposing treble and bass clefs in a solo piano piece. Verwenden Sie diese Schlüssel nicht für tatsächlich vom Spieler geforderte Oktavierungen (wie etwa Britten es in seinen späten Stücken tat, vor allem bei Klavier und Harfe)! Di...

Re: Suggestions for my score.

Did you add many layout tweaks? (f. e. increase the minimum word space) IMO the horizontal spacing looks unusually bad; some examples: m. 7, 9, 16, 17, 34, 35, 36. I know that LilyPond doesn’t handle vocal note spacing really well in crowded situations because the lyrics aren’t flexible at all but h...

Re: Community creates a textual font

The letter f needs some work too: The lower serif is too low (compare with hmnr), also the horizontal bars of t and f don’t align.
