Subject: Tie minimum length

The NR for 2.19.82 in section 3.2.128 'tie interface' states:
I think you mean the IR.

If the tie is shorter than this amount (in staff-spaces) an increasingly large length penalty is incurred.

But if I use this an error is thrown. Using minimum-length works fine.

warning: cannot find property type-check for `min-length' (backend-type?). perhaps a typing error?

warning: skipping assignment

Is this a mistake in the manual for the name?

No. min-length is a property in the details list. It must be set like this:

  \override Tie.details.min-length = ...

However, it doesn't do what you expect - it merely feeds into the length penalty.

To specify a minimum length for the tie you should use minimum-length, as you discovered.
This is defined in the spanner-interface, used by Tie.
