## Re: How to input a time signature in \markup?

```Hi Wei-Wei,

```
```I want to present time signatures in my reading notes. I tried
\markup { \time 2/4 }
It seems \time cannot be used in this way. I got a dirty way
\markup { \center-column { {\musicglyph #"2"} {\musicglyph #"4"} } }
```
which can show a time signature, but the vertical space between the two numbers are too large.
```
```
\markup \override #'(baseline-skip . 1) { \center-column { \musicglyph #"two" \musicglyph #"four" } }
```
```
```Is there any more elegant way?
```
```
```
I don't think so... but Lilypond is always surprising me, so who knows? =)
```
Best wishes,
Kieren.
