3.2.81 lyric-hyphen-interface

A centered hyphen is simply a line between lyrics used to divide syllables.

User-settable properties:

dash-period (number)

The length of one dash together with whitespace. If negative, no line is drawn at all.

height (dimension, in staff space)

Height of an object in staff-space units.

length (dimension, in staff space)

User override for the stem length of unbeamed stems (each unit represents half a staff-space).

minimum-distance (dimension, in staff space)

Minimum distance between rest and notes or beam.

minimum-length (dimension, in staff space)

Try to make a spanner at least this long, normally in the horizontal direction. This requires an appropriate callback for the springs-and-rods property. If added to a Tie, this sets the minimum distance between noteheads.

padding (dimension, in staff space)

Add this much extra space between objects that are next to each other.

thickness (number)

For grobs made up of lines, this is the thickness of the line. For slurs and ties, this is the distance between the two arcs of the curve’s outline at its thickest point, not counting the diameter of the virtual “pen” that draws the arcs. This property is expressed as a multiple of the current staff-line thickness (i.e., the visual output is influenced by changes to Staff.StaffSymbol.thickness).

This grob interface is used in the following graphical object(s): LyricHyphen and LyricSpace.
