I'm trying to typeset a glissando with a known but hidden final note in lilypond 2.19.82. It's called "contemporary glissando" in the manual: Glissando Manual

I've posted an example on http://www.lilybin.com/jqm370/1 (latest version is 2.19.55 there). The problem is the bars after the glissando. The timing is not correct anymore. What am I missing here?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


I think you want to turn the cadenza off earlier,

so change lines 22-24 from:

  c4\glissando \hideNotes c,,4 \unHideNotes



  c4\glissando \hideNotes \cadenzaOff c,,4 \unHideNotes

This will give you something like this:

Contemporary Glissando

    note that now, you won't need that forced bar line on line 26 – Elements in Space Oct 26 '18 at 8:09
