3.1.86 Script

Script objects are created by: Drum_notes_engraver, New_fingering_engraver and Script_engraver.

Standard settings:

staff-padding (dimension, in staff space):

0.25

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.

X-offset (number):

script-interface::calc-x-offset

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

Y-offset (number):

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

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

side-axis (number):

1

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):

ly:script-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.

font-encoding (symbol):

'fetaMusic

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).

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