In 1.1.8 I could add chord symbol markings for a slash chord
(inversion) such as "c:/e" to a note and it would typeset as the chord
symbol "C/E" above the staff. In 1.2, this is no longer working for
me. It seems to interpret it as two separate chords - C followed by E.

I notice that in 1.1.8, the LilyPond code that gets generated is
"c1:/e", but in 1.2, the generated LilyPond is "c2: e2". Is this a bug
yes, I think it is a regression brought about by this commit;a=commit;h=d6882883f4b6de3f930b4315138a9ac149d574f7

This allows you to change chord on a single note, but it seems it counts
the slash character as whitespace ...
Please log a bug report for this
No need!
I had a few minutes to look into this before leaving and it is a simple
typo \ for / in the source code - it was supposed to be counting tab
(\t) as white space, but instead counted backslash
backslash=>forward slash :)

   and t as whitespace
(/t) ...
I have fixed this now in git.


Hi, guys:

Are the "slash chords" chord symbols (e.g.,  "E/G#") supposed to be
working now?

I can't get them rendered correctly, using the code bits in this
thread.  It renders only the "E" in the above example.

Or is it a matter of denemo versions?  I am using denemo version 1.19,
lilypond 2.19.3
There have been two releases of Denemo since then, and there is about to
be the major 2.0 release

Please try

On MS windows the above initially unzipped and ran somehow; subsequently, i can't find the executable to launch it.

I ran the 1.2.4 binary on linux; seems to run OK.

Newly discovered problem: when there is a chord in the middle of a measure, the subsequent chords get misaligned

Chords positioned on the first note of a measure are aligned correctly, but positioning a chord mid-measure messes things up.

Attaching a PNG where my "f1:/g" chord is in the middle of the first measure, and the Dm chord is attached to the first note of the second measure (F), but in the render window the Dm chord is bumped down, across the 2nd-3rd bar boundary. If I remove the mid-measure chord, the Dm chord is rendered correctly, above the first note of the second measure.

(Should I start a new thread?)
