Sorry, using 2.8.0 here.

To find which version to convert to, did you just use trial & error?

Please always tell what LilyPond version you use.

Using 2.8.5, I tried to convert the file and noticed that it
was the conversion between versions 2.5.18 and 2.5.21 that required manual intervention. Therefore, you can do convert-ly --to=2.5.18 ...
Manually edit the file and add
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *)  2 4)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *)  3 4)
below #(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *)  1 4)
and change the version number in the file to 2.5.21.
Then, just run convert-ly again and it will do the conversion
from 2.5.21 to the current version without any further problems.
Note that I haven't tried to actually process the file, so there
may be some further problems that convert-ly didn't handle at all.


Quoting Stewart Holmes <address@hidden>:


I'm trying to use convert-ly to update However, when I do, I'm given some nasty errors, which don't really mean a lot to me. My question... is it worth the time trying to tinker with the source file to get convert-ly to accept it, or should I just convert it manually?
