## page-turn-breaking with \pageBreak after title page uses awkward breakin

 From: Reinhold Kainhofer Subject: page-turn-breaking with \pageBreak after title page uses awkward breaking (i.e. empty page, not at rest) Date: Sun, 8 Aug 2010 17:33:47 +0200 User-agent: KMail/1.13.5 (Linux/2.6.32-24-generic; KDE/4.4.5; i686; ; )

```I'm having problems with page-turn breaking in one of my instrumental scores.
As the score is 3 pages (with optimal breaking) and has a long rest about 2/3
into the piece (with enough wiggle room to move the page break to the rest), I
wanted to add a nice title page (and a \pageBreak before the whole score) and
let lilypond do page-turn breaking.

Unfortunately, LilyPond gives a warning:

Calculating page and line breaks (1 possible page breaks)...
warning: cannot fit the first page turn onto a single page.  Consider setting
first-page-number to an even number.

And LilyPond refuses to break the score at the R1*12.

Attached is an example. The page turn between page 3 and 4 should ideally be
placed at the R1*12, but lilypond refuses to do so, instead breaking at the
R1*5 and leaving one page empty (so 5 pages are used!).

Is this a bug in the page-turn algorithm?

Cheers,
Reinhold
