We have noticed that when a part starts with a partial measure, LilyPond will consider the first measure to be the following one. Is there an easy way to tell LilyPond to start counting from the partial measure?
ss to complete the measure is not good enough because they take up space. We found that adding
\set Score.currentBarNumber = #2 at the start will get the bar numbers how we want, but this looks counterintuitive (because who starts counting on 2, right?). Is there an easier way to do this?
In case you are wondering, we are working on: https://github.com/eantoranz/bwv/blob/main/BWV%201004%20Violin%20Partita%20II%20D%20minor/5-ciaccona.ly
