markup dynamics wrong size

 From: Eric Flesher Subject: markup dynamics wrong size Date: Tue, 5 Aug 2008 17:01:05 -0700

Wondering if anyone has experienced the following problem:


When creating new centered dynamics in a piano staff in ver. 2.11.55 (and several earlier versions) using \markup, three things happen:


1. the markup text created is significantly larger than the normal dynamic size
2. the text does not align with other dynamic markings

3. the presence of the markup text forces additional space between the staves





The dynamic marking concerned is contained in a variable thus:
pocoF = \markup  { \italic poco \dynamic f }

and is deployed locally as follows:
\times 4/5 { s16 s\mp s s-\pocoF s\> } \times 4/5 { s8\! s\mp s16 } s4

(I would include more code, but the file is extremely long.)

Any idea what might be wrong here, and how this could be fixed?

Thanks,
EF
