## Re: DynamicTextSpanners should end like hairpins

DynamicTextSpanners in their current state will prevent hairpins from being
```produced properly if the space is small.

```
The DynamicTextSpanner should have the same right boundary as a hairpin (i.e. a \cresc should end at the same place as a \< ). They should also behave the same
```way at barlines.

```
The following example demonstrates the behavior of a \cresc and a crescendo hairpin at the same place. Notice that the following diminuendo hairpin is cut off in the first example. The final example shows the proper diminuendo hairpin,
```as the \cresc is ended a beat earlier than in the original music.

The second set of examples shows similar behavior but ending at a barline.

I'm assuming that \cresc etc. are new features of 2.13? So - since it's presumably work in progress, should I open a new bug report, or should this be added as a comment to an existing Issue - 817 presumably?
