    Hi,
    I’m looking for a way to produce note bars (no idea how they are called). What I mean is:
    when singing psalms, there are usually many syllables sung on a single note, and I don’t want this note to be printed for everay syllable, but as a long note that stretches over the entire text that’s sung on this one note. How is that possible? Or: is there anywhere a full reference of GABC, preferably as pdf?

    Thanks,

    Martin

      Hi!
      As far as I know this isn’t possible with Gregorio. You could ask at https://github.com/gregorio-project/gregorio/issues for it to be added.

      You can use the “white” neume. It is used to imply many syllables with the same ‘note’. just add r to the gabc notation

      note+r …example: (hr) note wite

      You can use the symbol with “R” : ex: t{e}xt sung in one note(gR)
      The brackets { } will align the note with the first letters of the text.

    Full reference of gabc and Gregorio program you can find at: https://github.com/gregorio-project/gregorio/releases . Look for release of Gregorio program you use and download file GregorioRef-x_y_z.pdf, where x_y_z is your release number. For newest release filename is GregorioRef.pdf.
    In this file you find “Appendix A Font Glyph Tables”. Table A.1 contains list of all font glyphs and gabc code to obtain it.

    GregoBase is wonderful! But how can I open GABC with MAC and OpenOffice oder other program without finding a lot of strange chiffres in the text?

      GABC is text with “strange chiffres”. If you want a picture, choose eps or png instead.

    I’m trying to do bold text for certain parts to encourage the congregation to join in some of the chants, but I get “syntax Error” when trying to generate pdf. I’m putting either side of the phrase like this – what am I doing wrong?

    This is probably a common question, but is there a way to force a line break in the notation in Gregorio? I’ve been searching, but this appears to be a missing feature in the online editors I’m finding. 🙁 Any help would be appreciated!

      (z) or (Z) They do slightly different things. There’s also a (0) or (1) that tweaks it further.

      Use Z or z within brackets.

    I’m adding the hymns of the “Bernardine hymnal”, the 2d cistercian hymnal. Would you please add as source:
    “Badische Landesbibliothek Karlsruhe, Hymnarium cisterciense – Lichtenthal 28”
    and I’ve a problem with the Westmalle Hymnarium because we don’t have the 1909 edition, only the 1952’s one, and pages are different so I leave that field blank. If you know an online resource where I can find the pages, please let me know – or is it better add the 1952 as another source?
    thanks a lot
