## Polymeter Question

 This post was updated on . I'm working on a flute and marimba duet that features a polymetric passage. Would someone be able to suggest how to fix the typeset music so that it respects automatic line breaks? Currently, longer passages just run off the page...  (see attached .ly file)? I browsed the forum and gather that there could be an issue with this but wasn't able to find a solution. Thank you for your help! polymeter_test.ly   -- Sent from: http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/User-f3.html_______________________________________________ lilypond-user mailing list lilypond-user@gnu.org https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lilypond-user
