Make dynamic script with long text

 From: Andrew Bernard Subject: Make dynamic script with long text Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2019 23:12:19 +1100

Using make-dynamic-script generally works well for me. But now I need to have "pp e cresc...". This is all well and good, except I would like the dynamic text to run across the span barlines. The following MWE shows what I have. The text shies away from the span barline and pushes things around. I want it to just overlay the bar line as though the line was not there.

As a small explanation, in this context the composer uses span barlines as 'beat lines' not bars. This is why the set Timing.measureLength is there. Because of this, I am aware that I may be having here a system that is far from the norm, and so trying to use make-dynamic-script in a context it was not conceived for, but I do wonder if anybody can help out. Perhaps I am missing something very simple.

I do want to use a dynamic and not just markup, as I get all the advantages of alignment and so on if it is a dynamic.
