### 3.1.101 `PercentRepeat`

A percent symbol for repeating a bar. See also `PercentRepeatCounter`, `DoublePercentRepeat`, `DoubleRepeatSlash`, and `RepeatSlash`.

`PercentRepeat` objects are created by: `Percent_repeat_engraver`.

Standard settings:

`dot-negative-kern` (number):

`0.75`

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):

`'fetaMusic`

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).

`self-alignment-X` (number):

`0`

Specify alignment of an object. The value `-1` means left aligned, `0` centered, and `1` right-aligned in X direction. Other numerical values may also be specified - the unit is half the object width.

`slope` (number):

`1.0`

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 `BreakAlignment`s.

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):

`ly:multi-measure-rest::set-spacing-rods`

Dummy variable for triggering spacing routines.

`stencil` (stencil):

`ly:percent-repeat-interface::percent`

The symbol to print.

`thickness` (number):

`0.48`

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`).

`X-offset` (number):

`centered-spanner-interface::calc-x-offset`

The horizontal amount that this object is moved relative to its X-parent.

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

This object is of class Spanner (characterized by `spanner-interface`).
