## Full bar rest representation

 Hi, Can anyone tell me how to represent a full bar rest when using 'odd' time signatures? e.g. in a 4/4 time a full rest is represented by r1 , in 2/4 time a full rest is r2 and in 3/4 it is r2. But, what is a full rest in times like 5/4 7/4 12/4 7/8 etc. I'm trying some Carmina Burana parts and the 'barcheck fails' warnings are whizzing around my ears. Thanks, Hans de Rijck _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

 Hello Paul, Thanks for your answer. This is what I was looking for. I understood from the manual that capitalization was only used for multi-measure rests, but apparently I was wrong. thanks, Hans de Rijck. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Paul Scott" <[hidden email]> To: "Hans de Rijck" <[hidden email]> Cc: <[hidden email]> Sent: Saturday, July 30, 2005 9:05 PM Subject: Re: Full bar rest representation > Hans de Rijck wrote: > > >Hi, > > > >Can anyone tell me how to represent a full bar rest when using 'odd' time > >signatures? > >e.g. in a 4/4 time a full rest is represented by r1 , > >in 2/4 time a full rest is r2 and in 3/4 it is r2. > >But, what is a full rest in times like 5/4 7/4 12/4 7/8 etc. > > > > > Full bar rests should normally be capitalized - they are centered that > way.  There are many numerical possibilities but I do: > > R4*5 R4*7 R4*12 R8*7 > > and I do R4*3 instead of R2.  Except for the reversal of the numbers > these are closer to what they represent. > > Paul Scott > _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
