Hi Jaques,

I guess I can answer some of your questions ..

The box issue: check out the mark formatter settings here:

For the percent repeats to appear in a ChordNames context, you'll need to have it accept percent repeats first - that's not a default setting.
Placint something like



    \consists Percent_repeat_engraver
    \consists Double_percent_repeat_engraver

in the \layout block should do it. I'm not sure if you'll need both of the engravers - just toy around with it ...

About the measure length - sorry no idea. I never bothered about that. But I know it *can* be done ... anyone?

About the second volta line. There, I'm not sure if this can be done. If so, it looks like it's going to be messy.

Best of luck,

Hello folks,

I’m trying to setup the attached example as in the following, with an added 
staff containing empty measures as an exercise score:

What I currently get is:

        - why do the marks appear without a box around them?
        - why does \repeat percent not produce percent signs?
        - how can I get the measures to be equal length?
        - how can I ‘push’ the beginning of the seconda volta to the middle of 
the line?

Thanks for your help!
