## RE: Ties in second endings

Graham -

Here's a trim-down of the thread, for sticking in the manual, in the section on ties, or repeats, or both.  Edit to suit.

There ought to be a better way that makes the tie more pronounced, but a simple way eludes me.

- Bruce

================================

Ties are not normally continued into second endings, but a standard trick is to add a tie from an invisible note.  One way is to make the invisible note a grace note.  In that way, it doesn't destroy the rhythm.

\version "2.4.6"
\layout{ raggedright = ##t }
\score{
\relative c' {
\repeat volta 2 { f g a2 ~ }
\alternative {
{ a4 g2 f4 }
{ \grace{ \hideNotes a4~ } \unHideNotes a g2. }
}}}

=================================

Well, you know how to do that.  You can add it to the LSR or the
lilypond wiki,
or write some text and copy the example and send it to me for inclusion
in
the manual.

Cheers,
