Hi Harm,

thank you for pointing me to that (and actually now I recall having seen this hack some day).

Is there any convenient and semantically acceptable way of engraving an

Thanks for any ideas.
Hi Urs,

you could try to use David K's cheat:

  %% default
  \appoggiatura d''8 c''4 r2.
  %% cheated
  \appoggiatura { \bar "" d''8 \bar "|" } c''4 r2.

It has it's own drawbacks, though.

I can confirm both that it works and that it isn't perfect yet. As you can see in the attachedimage the spacing around the barline is much looser than between the other appoggiaturas. However, as this approach can conveniently be wrapped in a function

preBarAppoggiatura = 
#(define-music-function (content)(ly:music?)
     \appoggiatura { \bar "" #content \bar "|" }

I'm confident that I can create a fix that is transparent in the input file - if the client should request better spacing at all.
