3.1.65 MeasureGrouping

MeasureGrouping objects are created by: Measure_grouping_engraver.

Standard settings:

direction (direction):

1

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.

height (dimension, in staff space):

2.0

Height of an object in staff-space units.

padding (dimension, in staff space):

2

Add this much extra space between objects that are next to each other.

side-axis (number):

1

If the value is X (or equivalently 0), the object is placed horizontally next to the other object. If the value is Y or 1, it is placed vertically.

staff-padding (dimension, in staff space):

3

Maintain this much space between reference points and the staff. Its effect is to align objects of differing sizes (like the dynamics p and f) on their baselines.

stencil (stencil):

ly:measure-grouping::print

The symbol to print.

thickness (number):

1

Line thickness, generally measured in line-thickness.

Y-offset (number):

ly:side-position-interface::y-aligned-side

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

This object supports the following interface(s): grob-interface, measure-grouping-interface, side-position-interface and spanner-interface.
