Gregorio: splitting staves

    In Gregorio, is it possible to break staves in two parts:

    Example:

    This is what I get (showing text only)

    Veni, creator Spiritus mentes tuorum
    visita, imple superna gratia, quae tu
    creasti pectora.

    This is what I would like to get:

    Veni, creator Spiritus
    mentes tuorum visita,
    imple superna gratia,
    quae tu creasti pectora.

    Thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Erik

    Lower and uppercase Z will give you a line break. One streches the remaining line to the far right side, the other cuts where it is and moves on.

  • And they need to be in parentheses, right? This is more detail: End of line and custos.

    I have tried this, but my result is a Z in the lyrics and that's not correct.

    Yes, they need to be in parentheses, just like every control character in gregorio.

    I've attached an example below. Of course, the line stretch is extreme, but I'm just doing that to make a point for the example.
