Hi List.

This question is for Lilypond 2.4.2.

I am using Lilypond to typeset music for the Scottish Highland Bagpipes, and
we have some 2/4 music (Reels) that are supposed to have an allabreve time
signature. Now, in Lilypond is hard coded to 2/2, so how would I change that?

To use numbers in time signatures:
\override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'numbered

To use common or allabreve:
\override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'C

For further details go to:
"Program Reference/Backend/All layout objects/TimeSignature"
