## Re: Allow LilyPond to automatically handle then end of a staff with \par

Why would you insert a bar check at a place where you know that the measure isn't finished? Bar checks are only intended to help you make sure that LilyPond thinks that the measure is
finished at the same place as you think it is.


If you want an ending bar line, just use \bar "|." (or whatever bar type you wish) but not a bar check.

A feature I would like is to make it so that barchecks don't fail on the end of a staff started with \partial. Especially in songs, the last measure will usually be cut down by the same amount as the \partial at the beginning. Currently I have to hide the time signature and change time at the end of the staff to make it look right.


Other than that Lilypond has worked wonderfully for our booklet we're making. Thanks!
