## Re: fermata and text (markup) on/above one note

Hi Werner,


I don't understand, why the \hspace #0 influences the raise



As I understand it, the \hspace defines the height of the entire markup box -- i.e., it is explicitly taller than either the fermata or the (e.g.) "1." -- and thus it is this "larger" box (as set by the height of an \hspace object) that is affected by the spacing code.


You can also use this hint to line up custom dynamics with opposing descenders and ascenders, e.g.,

pp gorgeous    %  all descenders
pp fantastic    % all ascenders

will not line up "correctly" by default.

Hope this helps!
Kieren.
