## Re: How to chop a slur over a rest in a 1. volta repeat

There's a way, but it's rather messy.


Here's some code to give you a start. Essentially you draw a coloured box with \markup, experiment to get the right size, move it into the right position, and place it in layer 2 to put it above everything else, and then make the box white. If you add this when everything else is stable it is just about do-able. One problem is it pushes the volta marks too
high.  Offhand I don't know how to prevent this.

\alternative {
{ r1
% move to right position
-\tweak #'extra-offset #'(-2 . -1.5)
% place in higher layer
-\tweak #'layer #2
^\markup {
% specify color
% specify size
\filled-box #'(0 . 10) #'(0 . 1) #0
}
|
}

I'm not top posting.




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?
