Hi Josh,
Warm welcome lilyland (we met at BYU last year, if you remember).

This should do the trick.

\override Glissando #'bound-details #'right #'padding = #2

Hi all,

I'm just getting started with LilyPond, and am trying to create a spatial notation, and using Glissandos to show duration. My question has to do with the middle three notes in the example below.

1) For the connection between the B-flat to the C, then the C to the B-flat, is there a way to either just tell the Glissandos to be flat OR to predict what value I need for the #'right #'Y parameter? Or - is there a way to just draw flat lines from a note head that I just haven't found?
2) Assuming that glissandos are the way to go here, is there a way to avoid the collision between the C and the flat in the second B-flat?

Best,

Josh
