## Programming error when using very many grace notes [was: Re: ]

Hi Alex,


please say which LilyPond version you are using. Issues 2 and 3 probably are no bugs but partly intended behaviour (although I really much would like at least a warning and maybe an error when a line is longer than it should be like TeX’s “Overfull hbox”). And I cannot reproduce your first issue so please give us a minimal example like the following that illustrates your problem:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% BEGIN MINIMAL EXAMPLE (all three issues)
\version "2.18.2"

\relative {
% issue 2: very long instrument name
\set Staff.instrumentName = "This is a very long instrument"
% issue 3: too many notes per line
\repeat unfold 64 d'64
% issue 1: very many grace notes
\repeat unfold 1024 { \grace e8 d }
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% END MINIMAL EXAMPLE

Now here comes a solution for issue 2 and 3:

2. Change the indent (and if you use shortInstrumentName also the short-indent) as shown in this pdf: http://joramberger.de/files/LilypondSpacing.pdf 3. Use a very small font size or, probably better, allow line breaks at some reasonable points in the measure:

\repeat unfold 16 d'64 \bar ""
\repeat unfold 16 d64 \bar ""
\repeat unfold 16 d64 \bar ""
\repeat unfold 16 d64

sorry issue #3 below got chopped off. Here is the complete statement:

3. If a bar in a 4/4 rhythm piece has 64 notes (of 1/64 value each), then
Lilypond will run the notes off the page. One can only see about 2/3 of the
notes in that bar.

HI

I am not sure if this the result of bugs or something else but here are three
issues I found using this great product:

1.  When using too many grace notes and you run the code it will give a
message that says:

“Programming error: going back in MIDI time”

1.  Instrument names that are not very short get chopped
2.  If a bar in a 4/4 rhythm piece has 64 note
