Hi Trevor,

Really? Makes no difference at all in my MWE. Even afer correcting for the '=' sign in the tweak. Did you try it? What do I not see a result?

Subject: Make dynamic script with long text

Using make-dynamic-script generally works well for me. But now I need to have "pp e cresc...". This is all well and good, except I would like the dynamic text to run across the span barlines. The following MWE shows what I have. The text shies away from the span barline and pushes things around. I want it to just overlay the bar line as though the line was not there.

As a small explanation, in this context the composer uses span barlines as 'beat lines' not bars. This is why the set Timing.measureLength is there. Because of this, I am aware that I may be having here a system that is far from the norm, and so trying to use make-dynamic-script in a context it was not conceived for, but I do wonder if anybody can help out. Perhaps I am missing something very simple.

I do want to use a dynamic and not just markup, as I get all the advantages of alignment and so on if it is a dynamic.


\version "2.19.82"

ppecrescText = \markup {
  \normal-text \italic "pp e cresc ..."
ppecresc = \tweak DynamicText.self-alignment-X #LEFT
#(make-dynamic-script ppecrescText)

violinOne = {
  \time 6/4
  \set Timing.measureLength = #(ly:make-moment 1/4)

  \override DynamicLineSpanner.outside-staff-padding = #5

  \override Beam.positions = #'(-5 . -5)
  g''8. d'''16_\ppecresc ~|
  d'''4 ~

violinTwo = {
  g'4 _~
  g' _~

\score {
  \new GrandStaff
      \new Staff { \violinOne }
      \new Staff { \violinTwo }

  \layout {}

Here's one way:

ppecresc = \tweak DynamicText.self-alignment-X #LEFT
  \tweak DynamicText.right-padding = -10
#(make-dynamic-script ppecrescText)
