# How can I typeset a break or jump in my scores?

I am using lilypond to typeset some music. I would like to leave away some bars from the original music. Therefore, I have to jump from some bar to an other. But I want to show, that I cut something out.

What is the most common notation for such thing and how could I achieve that with lilypond?

• The score stops at rehearsal mark A at bar 100
• Some notation like "jump to", a symbol, an arrow, [...], blank bars...
• The score begins again at rehearsal mark M at bar 200
• The bar numbering starting at rehearsal mark M shout be 200 (100) | 201 (101) | 202 (102) | and so on.

Maybe, there is something in the manual for lilypond, but I can not find it. I don't even remember the Italian expression for "jump to".

The Bar Numbers and Rehearsal Marks segments of the documentation indicate how to do this:

```c1 | c1 | c1 | c1
%location where music has been elided

% I'd do something like:
s1^"2nd Movement Deleted" | s1 | s1 | s1 \break
% which inserts a line of blank bars, with a comment above
% indicating what has been removed

%reset the bar-number counter to the bar number that you want
\set Score.currentBarNumber = #200
\mark #13 % insert a rehearsal mark corresponding to "M" (letter 13)
c1 | c1 | c1 | c1
\mark \default %subsequent rehearsal marks will increment \
%from the previous (this will be "N").

Thank you very much. I will try that at home. Two more things: Do you now, how to say "jump to M" in Italian (or French. I am looking for some expression like "vi de". Can't remember the real words). And do you know, how to do a double numeration of the bars "old number (new number)"? –  LaRiFaRi Sep 25 '13 at 8:56
Interesting-- reference pages like the Dolmetsch page of notations have the "jump to Coda" but no other item to mark a cut or skip. –  Carl Witthoft Sep 25 '13 at 12:35
Yes, this would be cool, to have an item for that. But the blank bar looks fine for now. –  LaRiFaRi Sep 25 '13 at 17:44
lilypond.org/doc/v2.17/Documentation/notation/bars#bar-lines There is a type of bar line which yields a "[". Would look nice I think, but I don't succeed. –  LaRiFaRi Sep 25 '13 at 20:22
@LaRiFaRi this might be new for 2.17; are you using an earlier version? –  Dave Sep 25 '13 at 20:30
