Hi all,

Could anyone could tell me what's wrong with my shortcut?
It's printing the spanner correctly but not the text:

rit =
  #(make-music 'TextSpanEvent
               'span-direction -1
               'span-type 'text
               'span-text "rit.")

\score {
  \new Staff \relative c'' {
    d e f

span-type and span-text are for dynamic text spanners (e.g. CrescendoEvent). You can set these music properties for a TextSpanEvent, but Text_spanner_engraver will just ignore them.

Instead, you should \override or \tweak the bound-details of TextSpanner to attach text to the left or right end of the span. Something like this avoids the need to use make-music:

\version "2.20.0"

rit = -\tweak bound-details.left.text "rit." \startTextSpan

{ a'4\rit g'8 f' b'2\stopTextSpan }
