I'm engraving a piece that has partial measures at the beginning and end of
both repeats. The piece is in 4/4 time, with the initial measure of each
repeat being 1/8 and the final measure 7/8. In a minimal example, eg

\relative c'' {
\time 4/4
\repeat volta 2 {
\partial 8 gis8 |
fis4 g g c, |

\partial 8*7 b2. r8 }
}

I get no errors, but in the actual score, adding the \partial 8*7 at the end
of a repeat gives a barcheck failed error. In s.1.2.3 of the NR it states

that \partial is intended only to be used at the beginning of a piece. What's the correct way of getting this working?

Ps. Search function in the LSR seems broken at the moment - nothing gets
returned for any search.


Hi Nick,


I haven't had to do this before but it seems to work right without using \partial after the beginning of the piece. See if this gets the output you want. I just copied the same notes in to act as the B section:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\version "2.12.3"

\relative c'' {
\time 4/4
\repeat volta 2 {
\partial 8 gis8 |
fis4 g g c, |
b2. r8
}
\repeat volta 2 {
gis'8
fis4 g g c, |
b2. r8
}
}
