[CM] CMN - ligature marks
Thu, 19 Sep 2002 12:00:57 -0400
i'm using cmn to notate some transcriptions of renaissance and late
medieval music. i'm looking for a way to display the mark transcribers
use to indicate there was a ligature in the original music (if you don't
know what i'm talking about, lucky you). it's a square bracket, similar
to a beat subdivision bracket, that goes above the staff over the notes
that were originally ligated.
i tried to make something simple with apply #'mark etc., but it can only
be attached to one note and won't span two or more. so i need to make
something like begin-slur, end-slur and friends.
before i unplug the phone, roll up my sleeves, and dig into the cmn
code, i wonder: has anyone on the list already made such a thing that
they would like to share?
