3.1.59 MeasureGrouping

MeasureGrouping objects are created by: Measure_grouping_engraver.

Standard settings:

Y-offset (number):


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

side-axis (number):


If the value is #X (or equivalently 0), the object is placed horizontally next to the other object. If the value is #Y or 1, it is placed vertically.

stencil (unknown):


The symbol to print.

padding (dimension, in staff space):


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

direction (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.

thickness (number):


Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

height (dimension, in staff space):


Height of an object in staff-space units.

staff-padding (dimension, in staff space):


Maintain this much space between reference points and the staff. Its effect is to align objects of differing sizes (like the dynamics p and f) on their baselines.

This object supports the following interface(s): spanner-interface, side-position-interface, measure-grouping-interface and grob-interface.
