align aftergraces

Mark Stephen Mrotek

Hello all,

 

In the following, the two aftergraces do not align.

 

Thank you.

 

Mark

 

\version "2.19.49"

\score {

  \new PianoStaff  <<

    \new Staff = "upper"

    \relative c'' {

    r2 \afterGrace 15/16 d\startTrillSpan {c16\stopTrillSpan (d)}

    }  

    \new Staff = "lower" 

    \relative c {

    \clef bass

    r2 r4 \afterGrace 15/16 f\trill {e16 (f)}

    }

      >>

The 15/16 in \afterGrace 15/16 … is not a duration but a fraction of the
duration of the following note. In the upper staff you have a half note,
in the lower staff a quarter note. To align the grace notes, you’ll need
31/32 in the upper or 7/8 in the lower staff.

That's bcause  the 15/16 isn't a duration - it's the fraction of the main note length. Change the 2nd one to 7/8 and it works fine.

All the best,

Peter

Malte Meyn,

Changing only the lower to 7/8 works.
Thank you for not only your correction but also the explanation.

The 15/16 in \afterGrace 15/16 . is not a duration but a fraction of the
duration of the following note. In the upper staff you have a half note, in
the lower staff a quarter note. To align the grace notes, you'll need
