Simon,
It is clear for me now. Thank you.  No hard feeling, not at all.
Immanuel,
Ming.

I have been Using R1 before but not knowing how to use it for others I thought R4. s4. will make up a full measure of 6/8.
Which is correct :-) And the printed output does not differ, whether you use { R4. s4. } or { R2. }, since the MMR (MultiMeasureRest) is centered in the bar anyway. Also, with something like { R2.*4 }, it will often be necessary to print the rest multiple times, once in every measure that it spans.
So the only issue about your coding is the bar checking that Lily automatically performs with R.
I am learning by coming to the Lists for help.
Which is a good thing and I’m sorry if I’ve been too harsh.
I hope it’s clear now.

Immanuel,

Simon

Excuse me, but how on earth did you get the idea of writing { R4. s4. } ? It’s got to be R2. only, of course.
A ‘R’ rest is always interpreted like { | R | }, so there will be warnings if these barchecks fail.

Yours, Simon
