No, I'm afraid that didn't help. As I said, I need the allabreve symbol
displayed with a 2/4 time signature. Lilypond only displays it with a 2/2
signature, at least as far as I can see. Perhaps the "Bugs" entry in 5.16.6
showing a call to the Scheme function ly:make-duration could be useful here.
Does anyone know?
