3/4 time suddenly become 5/8 time for one measure?

Aaron Feldman
GNU LilyPond 2.18.2

running on Ubuntu 18.04

Compiling as text with no gui

In measure 29 the tempo changes to 5/8 time for no reason when I continue with 8th notes. Please note that the line that reads   \set Timing.measureLength = #(ly:make-moment 3/4)   was my attempt to fix it. That did not help, exactly the same result with, or without it.

Any help greatly appreciated.  This is the first time I have contacted the lilypond list.

Please be sure to post complete minimal working examples (MWEs).  Your
code you posted omitted two closing braces.  Also, be sure to look for
any warnings emitted by LilyPond--in this case, "warning: Ignoring
non-music expression".  Your use of #(set-global-staff-size) should
appear at the top-level, not within music.

But most importantly here, bar checks will be your friend.  If you were
using them, you would have discovered the issue:

You have an eighth note followed by a dotted half.  That is too much to
fit in a single measure, however LilyPond will attempt to draw what you
ask it to.

But that means the next measure "starts" on moment 1/8, so it only
appears to hold five eighth notes.

Aaron,

 

Please supply a snippet that encapsulates only the “problem.”

The code you provide has several syntactical errors.

Hi Aaron,

Welcome to lilypond.

There's a convention on the list to only post Minimal Working Examples, so that people stand a chance of being able to help you without undue  effort. MWE's by convention should not contain basic syntactical errors (which you can winkle out by paying close attention to the lilypond compiler error messages).

Here's the relevant information:


As a piece if advice, always (that is, always) use bar checks for every bar. They save hours of headaches.

Andrew
