\textLengthOn Makes lilypond format relative to the length of the
textual annotations instead of the notes. However it does this by
inserting a huge gap between the note with the annotation and the next
note. Is there a command that does the same thing relative to the bar
lines. e.g. formats notes normally and moves the gap to the end of the

lilypond-user mailing list

I don't quite follow what you're asking.

Info from other threads a while back, which could assist you:

* The action of \textLengthOn extends the length of the moment in time at which it occurs. 
*All notes which occur at a later musical moment will be displaced to the end of the text.
* \textLengthOn does not necessarily increase the spacing of the note that the text is attached to -
 the shortest moment in time when the text occurs will get the added space.

Does this help you understand better?

Do you happen to have an image showing what you're after?
