3.1.72 OctavateEight

OctavateEight objects are created by: Clef_engraver.

Standard settings:

self-alignment-X (number):


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.

break-visibility (vector):

#(#f #f #t)

A vector of 3 booleans, #(end-of-line unbroken begin-of-line). #t means visible, #f means killed.

X-offset (number):

#<simple-closure (#<primitive-generic +> #<simple-closure (#<primitive-procedure ly:self-alignment-interface::x-aligned-on-self>) > #<simple-closure (#<primitive-procedure ly:self-alignment-interface::centered-on-x-parent>) >) >

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

Y-offset (number):


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

stencil (unknown):


The symbol to print.

font-shape (symbol):


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

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.

font-size (number):


The font size, compared to the ‘normal’ size. 0 is style-sheet’s normal size, -1 is smaller, +1 is bigger. Each step of 1 is approximately 12% larger; 6 steps are exactly a factor 2 larger. Fractional values are allowed.

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