I simply wanted to transcribe a "hymn" which is really in
plainchant with unequal numbers of notes in each "bar" and make
duplicates for my clarinet and sax players. So all bars the same.
You work at a more complex level than I can generally understand!
Happy New Year

Well, the "Unmeasured Staff" command seemed to be in a bit of a
In this piece the number of beats per bar is variable, so I
an unmeasured staff.
I now get a time signature of 256/1
I tried hiding the time signature (I assume that the U as
that) on all 7 staffs (only 3 of which are printed as staffs)
there is no change.
I am obviously doing something wrong, but have no idea what!!
so I've upgraded it.
The 256/1 time signature that Unmeasured Staff sets is what
as the time signature for its "bars" - basically meaning allow
amount of notes in each Denemo "bar". But for typesetting
relevant thing is that it issues a "\cadenzaOn" to LilyPond.
off LilyPond's automatic barlines and beaming. What was strange
it left it up to you to turn off the typesetting of the time
- see Score->Typesetter->(Print) Don't Engrave Time
So the new version does all that for you.
You didn't actually say in any detail what you wanted to do -
allows you to place notes, bar lines, and beams freely in the
score, but bar lines will act like "Marks" - that is they will
placed in the same musical moment in all staffs. If you want to
unequal bar lengths at the same moment in different staffs you
tell LilyPond to do that - see
"These predefined commands affect all staves in the score, even
placed in just one Voice context. To change this, move the
Timing_translator from the Score context to the Staff context."
For the current version of Denemo, you can just use the
Time Signatures->Start Cadenza
command at the start of your staffs ...
