3.1.117 SystemStartBrace

SystemStartBrace objects are created by: System_start_delimiter_engraver.

Standard settings:

collapse-height (dimension, in staff space):

5.0

Minimum height of system start delimiter. If equal or smaller, the bracket/brace/line is removed.

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.

font-encoding (symbol):

'fetaBraces

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).

padding (dimension, in staff space):

0.3

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

stencil (stencil):

ly:system-start-delimiter::print

The symbol to print.

style (symbol):

'brace

This setting determines in what style a grob is typeset. Valid choices depend on the stencil callback reading this property.

X-offset (number):

ly:side-position-interface::x-aligned-side

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

This object supports the following interface(s): font-interface, grob-interface, side-position-interface, spanner-interface and system-start-delimiter-interface.
