3.1.35 DynamicText

DynamicText objects are created by: Dynamic_engraver and New_dynamic_engraver.

Standard settings:

stencil (unknown):

ly:text-interface::print

The symbol to print.

direction (direction):

ly:script-interface::calc-direction

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.

X-offset (number):

ly:self-alignment-interface::x-aligned-on-self

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

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.

Y-offset (number):

ly:self-alignment-interface::y-aligned-on-self

The vertical amount that this object is moved relative to its Y-parent.

self-alignment-Y (number):

0

Like self-alignment-X but for the Y axis.

font-series (symbol):

'bold

Select the series of a font. Choices include medium, bold, bold-narrow, etc.

font-encoding (symbol):

'fetaDynamic

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

font-shape (symbol):

'italic

Select the shape of a font. Choices include upright, italic, caps.

extra-spacing-width (pair of numbers):

'(+inf.0 . -inf.0)

In the horizontal spacing problem, we pad each item by this amount (by adding the ‘car’ on the left side of the item and adding the ‘cdr’ on the right side of the item). In order to make a grob take up no horizontal space at all, set this to (+inf.0 . -inf.0).

outside-staff-priority (number):

250

If set, the grob is positioned outside the staff in such a way as to avoid all collisions. In case of a potential collision, the grob with the smaller outside-staff-priority is closer to the staff.

This object supports the following interface(s): text-interface, self-alignment-interface, script-interface, item-interface, font-interface, dynamic-interface and grob-interface.
