I'm trying to figure out what the character in the custom key
signature is, and it's not working for me. I've tried copying and
pasting from the manual, but it's not working for. I get these errors:




Vol Fehler: GUILE signalisierte einen Fehler für den

                         \set Staff.keySignature = #

Should this really be a ` or rather a ' (i.e. a quote, not an accent)? The thing in parentheses after the # is simply a list to Scheme and thus needs to be quoted with a ', because otherwise Scheme would try to evaluate it as a function call.


No, it's a back quote. See for example for a short explanation.


Is the character ‘? I was able to get it to work by copying/pasting from a normal web browser (firefox) into the application, but my normal method of copying from links directly into emacs/nano in my terminal didn't work (although usually copying utf-8 characters does work, and regardless, I can enter them there).
