3.1.135 VoltaBracket

VoltaBracket objects are created by: Volta_engraver.

Standard settings:

direction (direction):

1

If side-axis is 0 (or X), then this property determines whether the object is placed LEFT, CENTER or RIGHT with respect to the other object. Otherwise, it determines whether the object is placed UP, CENTER or DOWN. Numerical values may also be used: UP=1, DOWN=-1, LEFT=-1, RIGHT=1, CENTER=0.

edge-height (pair):

'(2.0 . 2.0)

A pair of numbers specifying the heights of the vertical edges: (left-height . right-height).

font-encoding (symbol):

'fetaText

The font encoding is the broadest category for selecting a font. Currently, only lilypond’s system fonts (Emmentaler) are using this property. Available values are fetaMusic (Emmentaler), fetaBraces, fetaText (Emmentaler).

font-size (number):

-4

The font size, compared to the ‘normal’ size. 0 is style-sheet’s normal size, -1 is smaller, +1 is bigger. Each step of 1 is approximately 12% larger; 6 steps are exactly a factor 2 larger. Fractional values are allowed.

stencil (stencil):

ly:volta-bracket-interface::print

The symbol to print.

thickness (number):

1.6

Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

word-space (dimension, in staff space):

0.6

Space to insert between words in texts.

This object supports the following interface(s): font-interface, grob-interface, horizontal-bracket-interface, line-interface, side-position-interface, spanner-interface, text-interface, volta-bracket-interface and volta-interface.
