## Re: Holes in spanners for tall notes

```

```
```\repeat volta 2 {R1}
\alternative {
{a4 a a a a'''' a a a}
{R1}
}

```
In this example, the volta is moved very far up because of that one note. This is very ugly IMO. Is there any way to insert a hole in the line and have the note stick up over the volta?
```Yes; this override prevents the spanner from taking part in the
outside staff ordering:

\version "2.19.80"
{
\override Score.VoltaBracketSpanner.outside-staff-priority=##f
\repeat volta 2 {R1}
\alternative {
{a4 a a a a'''' a a a}
{R1}
}
}
