## Re: percent repeats (bug?)

In a post/email sent out several months ago, Randy brought up some
issues about percent repeats over more than two measures. He cited two
issues, related to where the percent sign is placed and what it looks
like.

I would like to add a third: line breaks aren't allowed in the middle
of a \repeat percent. I discovered this when trying to set up a 4-bar
repetition of a bass riff. A smaller example is:

\score {<<
\new TabStaff { \repeat percent 5 { \repeat unfold 16 { c4 } } }
\lyrics { \repeat unfold 20 "a very long bit of lyrics indeed!"1 }
>> }

(Incidentally, I have tried to put a line break in the appropriate
place, using the LSR and the manuals but gotten nowhere. A fix would
be nice to have.)
