3.1.38 DynamicText

DynamicText objects are created by: Dynamic_engraver and New_dynamic_engraver.

Standard settings:

collision-bias (number):

-2.0

Number determining how much to favor the left (negative) or right (positive). Larger absolute values in either direction will push a collision in this direction.

collision-padding (number):

0.5

Amount of padding to apply after a collision is detected via the self-alignment-interface.

direction (direction):

ly:script-interface::calc-direction

If side-axis is 0 (or X), then this property determines whether the object is placed LEFT, CENTER or RIGHT with respect to the other object. Otherwise, it determines whether the object is placed UP, CENTER or DOWN. Numerical values may also be used: UP=1, DOWN=-1, LEFT=-1, RIGHT=1, CENTER=0.

extra-spacing-width (pair of numbers):

'(+inf.0 . -inf.0)

In the horizontal spacing problem, we pad each item by this amount (by adding the ‘car’ on the left side of the item and adding the ‘cdr’ on the right side of the item). In order to make a grob take up no horizontal space at all, set this to (+inf.0 . -inf.0).

font-encoding (symbol):

'fetaText

The font encoding is the broadest category for selecting a font. Currently, only lilypond’s system fonts (Emmentaler) are using this property. Available values are fetaMusic (Emmentaler), fetaBraces, fetaText (Emmentaler).

font-series (symbol):

'bold

Select the series of a font. Choices include medium, bold, bold-narrow, etc.

font-shape (symbol):

'italic

Select the shape of a font. Choices include upright, italic, caps.

outside-staff-priority (number):

250

If set, the grob is positioned outside the staff in such a way as to avoid all collisions. In case of a potential collision, the grob with the smaller outside-staff-priority is closer to the staff.

right-padding (dimension, in staff space):

0.5

Space to insert on the right side of an object (e.g., between note and its accidentals).

self-alignment-X (number):

0

Specify alignment of an object. The value -1 means left aligned, 0 centered, and 1 right-aligned in X direction. Other numerical values may also be specified.

self-alignment-Y (number):

0

Like self-alignment-X but for the Y axis.

stencil (stencil):

ly:text-interface::print

The symbol to print.

X-offset (number):

ly:self-alignment-interface::x-aligned-on-self

The horizontal amount that this object is moved relative to its X-parent.

Y-offset (number):

ly:self-alignment-interface::y-aligned-on-self

The vertical amount that this object is moved relative to its Y-parent.

This object supports the following interface(s): dynamic-interface, dynamic-text-interface, font-interface, grob-interface, item-interface, script-interface, self-alignment-interface and text-interface.
