## Re: Extra space at the beginning of the bar

Hello Kieren,

Unfortunately yhe first option adds space only after a barline, and not at the measure on the left of the staff,  and the second option doesn't add space if the measure starts with a rest or skip event.

I could use   "\tweak Rest.extra-spacing-width ... " for the rest but I don't know what to apply to a skip event...

How can I fix that?

Here are two options that avoid X-offset:

\version "2.19.80"
\language "english"

\score {
\repeat unfold 12 { c'4 }
\layout {
\context {
\Score
\override BarLine.space-alist.first-note = #'(fixed-space . 12)
\override BarLine.space-alist.next-note = #'(semi-fixed-space . 12.5)
}
}
}

{ \tweak NoteHead.extra-spacing-width #'(-12 . 0) c'4 4 4 4 }

Hope that helps!
Kieren.
