Re: Fingerings within voiced chord throw an error (Lilypond 2.20.0)

Thanks David.

What a pain.  I've tried a few other things: to formally instantiate new voices with "voiceOne" and "voiceTwo", to include a "\relative" call - but it makes no difference.  Currently I seem to have run out of the ability in this current score of changing the fingering styles when having more than one voice.  The issue seems to be with the chord notation of fingering.  For example, standard fingering outside the staff works:


but the moment I try to change the position of the fingering, and enter


I get the error.  The same thing happens if I want a voice which includes a chord:

<<{<d' bf f>4}\\{<d bf>4}>>

This means that basically I can't include a chord in a new voice.  Is there a way of getting a more detailed log so that I could try to see what might be causing this error in my score?

Thanks again,

It's a bug in LP, I believe. If you have more editing to carry out on
the score, just plough on regardless and the error will probably
disappear. (Sorry to sound like 45. :) )

Convert -1073741819 to hex, and it translate into Access Violation,
ie reading/writing to an out-of-bounds address. Not easy to debug.
