Recently I stumbled upon this problem and did not find a satisfying answer

in neither the Documentation segment nor in the archives:


\version "2.10.33"

\paper{ ragged-right=##t }


\relative c'' {

 \repeat volta 2 {

 c,2^\markup {tacet la 1 \hspace #-1.5 \raise #1.0 {ma} volta}\p(

 b a g4) g'8( f |e4 c d2) |r4 e8( c cis4 a' |


 \alternative {

  {r1 |}

  {c,!2 b) |}




Please note the important "tacet la 1ma volta" line, which indicates rests

during the first occurrence of this part.

It is a fragment taken from a bigger score and printing the whole thing twice

(which may seem obvious here) is not a solution.

I experimented with "laissezVibrer" and "repeatTie", but these commands

really end and rebegin the tie (not even a slur) "al niente" (among other

drawbacks) instead of chopping the slur in two at a thick point.

Is there a way of radically ending a slur at a predefined point at a certain

thickness (and beginning it likewise at the other end) or somehow

interrupting/blanking/hiding the slur over this 1. volta rest?
