## RE: How to generate a counter for repeated bars

```Can I just add a little comment (I'm not asking anybody to look at the
code, just saying "if you do ..." )

I regularly see repeated bars or percent bars without numbers and with
numbers. I see repeated bars followed by percent bars, with or without
numbers. Note that the numbers always count from the first of the
repeated bars. And the numbers may start on the 3rd, 4th, 5th bar ...

So it is not unusual to see a bar repeated twice, an un-numbered % bar,
then five numbered % bars with the numbers starting at 4. I haven't yet
tried to set anything like that yet ... how on earth you would automate
that in lily I DON'T know! I know how I'd try and do it, but I doubt the
current syntax supports it.

Cheers,
Wol

As far as I know, this is only supported for percent repeats. It's
probably not so hard to do with some Scheme code.

repeats, where you do \override PercentRepeat #'transparent = ##t
to make it invisible (i.e. only leaving the numbered bars).
