I, a beginner too, and maybe others don't really understand your need, but
here are my guesses (I hope someone else will help too).
My first advice is to upgrade your version of Lilypond. :)
About item 2:
You might find answers in 8.4.1 Polymetric notation. Also if you use \set
Score.defaultBarType = "empty". No bar line will be drawn unless you
specify, for example, c8 c8 \bar "|" c8 c8.

About item 1: Do you need what is described in section 8.5.1? Or you may
find something in the Regression Tests or Tips and Tricks. It is worth
consulting these html files.

Good luck,

Hello all,

I sent a message to the list a couple of days ago and never heard
anything back, I'm just wondering if the message actually went
through, because it seems like people here are good at responding :)
So here it is again, my apologies if I'm double-posting...


If anyone can help with these 2 questions regarding a score I'm
working on, I would be very grateful.  I'm using 2.4.5.

1)  I need to draw boxes notes on the staff, in order to designate
improvisation.  Is this possible?  (I would be surprised if it wasn't,
but I seem unable to find anything in the docs.)

2)  Is there a way to draw manual barlines in one staff that won't
affect anything in other staves?  For instance:

c8 c8 \bar c8 c8

overtop of:


I'm sorry if either of those questions are covered in the docs, a link
would be sufficient.

Thanks in advance,

- Chris
