3.1.73 OttavaBracket

OttavaBracket objects are created by: Ottava_spanner_engraver.

Standard settings:

Y-offset (number):

ly:side-position-interface::y-aligned-side

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

stencil (unknown):

ly:ottava-bracket::print

The symbol to print.

font-shape (symbol):

'italic

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

shorten-pair (pair of numbers):

'(0.0 . -0.6)

The lengths to shorten a text-spanner on both sides, for example a pedal bracket. Positive values shorten the text-spanner, while negative values lengthen it.

staff-padding (dimension, in staff space):

1.0

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.

padding (dimension, in staff space):

0.5

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

minimum-length (dimension, in staff space):

1.0

Try to make a spanner at least this long, normally in the horizontal direction. This requires an appropriate callback for the springs-and-rods property. If added to a Tie, this sets the minimum distance between noteheads.

style (symbol):

'dashed-line

This setting determines in what style a grob is typeset. Valid choices depend on the stencil callback reading this property.

dash-fraction (number):

0.3

Size of the dashes, relative to dash-period. Should be between 0.0 (no line) and 1.0 (continuous line).

edge-height (pair):

'(0 . 1.2)

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

direction (direction):

1

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.

outside-staff-priority (number):

400

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, spanner-interface, side-position-interface, ottava-bracket-interface, line-interface, horizontal-bracket-interface, font-interface and grob-interface.
