## Re: how to add a utf-8 character to the title

thanks to all who suggested using the short way. unfortunately, my system does not seem to be configured for this easy solution. when i run lilypond on the simple file below, i get the following error and the title is SintIntro instead of Sinté Intro. i'm happy using the long way, but would be interested in knowing how to fix the problem with the short way.

thanks,
-brian

example_title.ly
%% simple lilypond example file
\version "2.12.2"

title = "Sinté Intro"
tagline = ##f
}

\paper{
#(set-paper-size "letter")
line-width      = 7.0\in
}

\markup{ \null }
%% EOF

the long way worked. thanks!


Use the short way, it's much shorter and comfortable e.g. for lyrics
