User-settable properties:

bracket-flare (pair of numbers)

A pair of numbers specifying how much edges of brackets should slant outward. Value 0.0 means straight edges.

break-overshoot (pair of numbers)

A pair of numbers specifying how much a broken spanner sticks out of its bounds horizontally on the broken side(s). For broken beams and broken tuplet brackets, the bounds are given by the prefatory matter on the left and/or the rightmost column on the right. For broken horizontal brackets, the bounds are the leftmost and/or rightmost column; for broken measure spanners, the left and/or right edge of the staff.

connect-to-neighbor (pair)

Pair of booleans, indicating whether this grob looks as a continued break.

dashed-edge (boolean)

If set, the bracket edges are dashed like the rest of the bracket.

edge-height (pair)

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

shorten-pair (pair of numbers)

The lengths to shorten on both sides a hairpin or text-spanner such as a pedal bracket. Positive values shorten the hairpin or text-spanner, while negative values lengthen it.
