Re: Unable to attach a bend to an \afterGrace note with the bend spanner

I was finally able to get my bend current with the following:

\hideAccidental \afterGrace c''\startBend {\once \hideNotes cih''16\stopBend}

The bug that prints the after-grace note twice probably still exists, but since the note is hidden, is not a concern for me. If someone else ever wants to display the after-grace, they’ll likely have a problem.

I know a lot of programming languages, but lisp dialects are not in my collection. Is there a simple function that could shorten this for me? Something like:

addQuarterBend =
#(define-event-function (mus)(ly:music?)
    \afterGrace $mus \startBend {\once \hideNotes \transpose c cih $mus \stopBend  \once \hideNotes $mus}

Something like this would allow me to type \addQuarterBend c’8 to just decorate that note with a bend.

Here is a link to the output that is currently being produced. 

The first three bends are what I want, but I cannot make the final one look the same. This is because I am bending to a grace note on the note that follows the note I want decorated. For this incorrect note, the grace would be in the following measure, so I have to use \afterGrace To keep everything together. However, as you can see, Lilypond renders two of these notes when the bend is used. I have not figured out how to hide these \afterGrace notes.
