```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 :)

That's easy check, just look in the mailing list archives.

-------------------

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.)

If you can point to some example that shows the desired layout, it's easier to answer your question. However, if you look at Appendix C.4 of the manual, you can see a list of all symbols
```available in the LilyPond specific fonts. Among others, there
```
are some rectangular note heads which are used for the shape note heads. After some trial and error and deciphering the LilyPond source code, I found out that you can print all note heads using such a rectangle with \new Voice \relative c' {
``` \override NoteHead #'glyph-name = #"1la"
c d e }
(you can get a wider rectangle if you replace "1la" with "0la" and
a filled one if you use "2la").

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