## first half of slurs across line-break

 From: David Nalesnik Subject: first half of slurs across line-break Date: Wed, 30 Sep 2009 12:55:47 -0500

Dear LilyPonders,

I've found information on how to alter the second half of slurs which span a line-break, but I can't find anything about adjusting the first half while keeping the cloned half at the default.

I've constructed a simple example showing what happens when I break a certain slur.  In the second version, I'd like the first half of the slur to begin above the stem (as it does in the unbroken example)
while keeping the second half of the slur exactly as it is.  Is there a way to do this by adjusting the workaround from the "Difficult Tweaks" section of the NR?

Thanks,
David
