```Hi!

In 2.13.6 I did a project and used:
\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-box-alphabet
and I got the boxes and the letter I (all in one command!)
```
```Thanks for that. That particular value for set
(format-mark-box-alphabet) doesn't seem to appear anywhere in the
documentation - or at least, I can't find it in the PDF documentation,
which is what I use.
```
```
This must be a bug in the documentation.

Nick, could you figure out where it should go, and write a bit of text and a
simple example, so we can add it to the docs?
```
Well I only have/use the PDF documentation, and the section on Rehearsal marks is on p.74 of the 2.13.7 Notation reference. After the initial example, it presently says:
```
==============================================
```
The letter ‘I’ is skipped in accordance with engraving traditions. If you wish to include the
```letter ‘I’, then use

\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-alphabet
==============================================

This should probably be changed to

==============================================
```
The letter ‘I’ is skipped in accordance with engraving traditions. If you wish to include the letter ‘I’, then use one of the following commands, depending on which style of rehearsal mark you want (letters only, letters in a hollow box, or letters in a hollow circle)
```
\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-alphabet
\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-box-alphabet
\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-circle-alphabet
==============================================

```
And a simple example (goes up to letter J, not much point to it if it doesn't go past I)
```
\relative c'' {
\set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-box-alphabet
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
c1 \mark \default
}
