Good morning,

if you place the fermata as a MarkupTextScript event, you can shift it with 

   \once \override TextScript #'self-alignment-X = #-0.6
   c^\markup { \fontsize #0 \musicglyph #"scripts.ufermata" }

That should not normally be necessary. Most needs would be either a regular \fermata over a note or \fermataMarkup.

I should have realized that the one over a note would be a TextScript.


Eluze's simple answers should be all that are normally needed.




If you concat the ufermata with other text, you can see, that its used extent 
does not apply to
its visual extent. So it will not be centered, if you set self-alignment-X to 
0. With fonsize = #0
and self-alignment-X = #-0.6 it looks quite well.

^\markup{ \fontsize #1 \musicglyph #"scripts.ufermata" }

where you choose any value you want instead of #1.


Paul Scott

is it normal that with the markup the fermata appears on the left side of the 
note unlike the \fermata which appears right on top and centered?
Nils didn't say that he was talking about a fermata over a note. :)

I looked for a while in the Internals Reference without finding how to change 
the font size of a fermata over a note.

Maybe someone else can help.
