Re: Tenuto marking too close to note

Hello Erika,

the problem here is that Lilypond handles many Articulations the same way. So overriding Script.padding will affect all articulations.

We have recently discussed possibilites to override properties for specific articulations, but if you are using the shorthand -- for tenuto then you can simply do

dashDash = \tweak padding #0.5 \tenuto
(use whatever value looks good to you)
somewhere at the beginning of your file to simply override the behaviour of that shorthand.

I would like to have the tenuto mark a bit farther away from the note. I had a similar issue with tuplet numbers and then "\override TupletNumber.Y-offset = #-2.5" fixed the issue. I don't know what I should replace "TupletNumber" by in the case of tenuto lines.

Minimal example here:

\version "2.18.2"

\new Staff {
  \relative c'' {\time 3/4 a g e--}

Thank you!
