User-defined non-sticky articulations?

Recommended Posts

Some attributes are sticky (they do not need to be repeated to maintain being set, and when they are repeated they are not shown again in the score) -- while others are not. For example, the articulation pizz is sticky, while stacc is not.


It seems that add-text-attributes declares only sticky attributes. Is it perhaps possible to also have custom non-sticky attributes? For example, want to annotate  certain motif or phrase names, and if I repeat the same motif the text label is not shown again.


Just in case this is already possible...


Thank you!

Thanks for coming back. Here is a little demo example snippet. This example shows a very simple motif and its repetition. I would like to annotate some motif label (I will use such labels also for segmenting parts for further processing -- that works fine).

 ;; motif start signs
 '(m1 "m1")
 '(m2 "m2")
 '(m3 "m3")
 '(m4 "m4")
 '(m5 "m5")
 '(m6 "m6")
 '(m7 "m7")
 '(m8 "m8")
 '(m9 "m9")
 '(m10 "m10") )

'(q c4 m1+leg d4 q c4 m1+leg d4)


By contrast, the attribute num1 behaves differently. 

'(q c4 num1+leg d4 q c4 num1+leg d4)


I would like to be able to define custom text-attributes that behave like num1 and friends.


Thanks again!  (If I am the only one who wants such a feature this does not need to have high priority :)
