3.1.85 PercentRepeat

PercentRepeat objects are created by: Percent_repeat_engraver.

Standard settings:

dot-negative-kern (number):


The space to remove between a dot and a slash in percent repeat glyphs. Larger values bring the two elements closer together.

font-encoding (symbol):


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).

slope (number):


The slope of this object.

spacing-pair (pair):

'(break-alignment . staff-bar)

A pair of alignment symbols which set an object’s spacing relative to its left and right BreakAlignments.

For example, a MultiMeasureRest will ignore prefatory items at its bounds (i.e., clefs, key signatures and time signatures) using the following override:

\override MultiMeasureRest
  #'spacing-pair = #'(staff-bar . staff-bar)
springs-and-rods (boolean):


Dummy variable for triggering spacing routines.

stencil (stencil):


The symbol to print.

thickness (number):


Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

This object supports the following interface(s): font-interface, grob-interface, multi-measure-rest-interface, percent-repeat-interface and spanner-interface.
