Hi Paul,

I suspect, there is something wrong with spacer rests. At least this snippet works:


\version "2.18.2"

\addQuote musi \relative c'' { R1 c4 b a g f e d c R1 }




{ R1*4 } \\

{ s1*2 \cueDuring musi #UP { s2. } }




But I wonder, why you use a <<{}\\{}>> construct?

Normally I would just use

{ R1*2 \cueDuring musi #UP { R1 } R1 }

And first I highly recommend to upgrade to latest stable! I only checked in 2.18.2 - there might be a problem 2.14?

Cheers, Jan-Peter

Dear All, I am trying to neatly combine piano cue notes and full measure 
rests for the intsrument not in play (here the Viola). 
I have attached my very crude and failed attempt. This section shows the piano 
cue notes in blue at measures 81 & 82. What I would like to do is add a full measure rest (black)  in each of these bars and place the rests (as usual) right in
the middle of the stave. The attempt I show here used two voices <<{} \\ {}  >> etc but that did not work. 
I checked snippet libraries but didn't find any examples that shed light on this 
little problem ?
