SystemStartBar objects are created by: System_start_delimiter_engraver.

Y-extent (pair of numbers):


Hard coded extent in Y direction.

padding (dimension, in staff space):


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

X-offset (number):


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

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.

style (symbol):


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

collapse-height (dimension, in staff space):


Minimum height of system start delimiter. If equal or smaller, the bracket/brace/line is removed.

thickness (number):


Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

stencil (unknown):
