I'm using lilypond with Frescobaldi to notate a piano score. My time signature is 4/4, and I just did a clef change, changing the bottom clef to treble for a few notes. I returned the clef to bass, and then inserted an a1,, into the next measure. It kicked back an error message and couldn't engrave; however, when I
1) change the a1,, to a2,,
2) change the a1,, to plain a1
it engraves just fine (the first example correctly engraves it as a half note, the second engraves it as an A natural two octaves above the pitch I desire.
But try as I might, it simply refuses to engrave the whole note duration at that octave. I'm in \relative mode; I'm quite sure there's a workaround using absolute, but this is frustrating. Is this a bug or am I missing something? I', new to the program so I thought I'd ask.
