Re: cannot end slur

The problem is that acciaccatura and appoggiatura
are both slurred to the following note, and slurs
cannot be nested.  If you change the \acciaccatura
to \grace (which isn't slurred to the following
note) your slur will continue to the g.

You can add the slash to the grace note with

\once \override Stem #'stroke-style = #"grace"

immediately before it, but there is no easy way
to add the acciaccatura slur.

If you really need the grace slur you'll need to
fiddle with hidden notes in a second voice
in parallel.

    I'm having trouble entering the following fragment of music:

\version "2.12.2"

\relative c'' {
\time 3/4
\partial 32 cis32~( |
cis4~ cis8~ \acciaccatura e' f~ f4 |
f16 e \times 2/3 { f des a } \times 2/3 { e d c } aes32 g'16.) ees32 b g d e gis c e |

The slur goes to the first high f, then stops, and I get a warning:
cannot end slur.

I've tried overriding various Slur properties, but nothing seems to
get the slur to extend all the way to the g.

If anyone has any advice or reference links, it would be greatly
