## Hide staff with Arrows Possible without other program?

 Hello I was trying to create a score where a staff goes away and a simple horizontal arrow continues in its place even over page breaks. I cannot understand where to find this answer and I believe the framengraver is too much for myneeds. Is it possible? I would like to have a simple arrow go across the page or pages in place of staff then the staff would appear later as normal as found in many contemporary scores. Do I need to leave blank space and go add arrows in image software after LilyPond I hope not. Thank you for helping me with my question. I have a photo to show my help. The arrows will not always stay on one page but travel pages in place of staff in some cases which is very common. help-please.jpg   -- Sent from: http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/User-f3.html_______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user

Hi Reggie, You can do this with a simple TextSpanner: \version "2.19.82" onStaffExtender = {   \override TextSpanner.style = #'line   \override TextSpanner.thickness = #6   \override TextSpanner.to-barline = ##t   \override TextSpanner.outside-staff-priority = ##f   \override TextSpanner.Y-offset = #0   \override TextSpanner.bound-details.left.padding = #0   \override TextSpanner.bound-details.right.padding = #0   \override TextSpanner.bound-details.right-broken.text =   \markup \fontsize #5 \arrow-head #X #RIGHT ##t   \override TextSpanner.bound-details.right.text =   \markup \fontsize #5 \arrow-head #X #RIGHT ##t } \score {   <<     \new Staff \repeat unfold 80 c'4     \new Staff {       c'1       \stopStaff       \once \onStaffExtender       <>\startTextSpan       s1*18       \startStaff       <>\stopTextSpan       c'1     }   >> } -- Mark Knoop _______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list [hidden email] https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
