duration of a piece

Hello, how can I place automatically the duration of a piece at the end of the score? Thanks, Ludo

Hi Ludo, you can use one of these tokens in a text frame:

  • {@flowDuration@} shows the duration of whatever flow is shown on the same page as the token
  • {@flow_n_Duration@} shows the duration a specific flow. For example, {@flow2Duration@} shows the duration of the second flow in the project.

Both tokens display the duration formatted as m’s”, e.g. 4’33”. (Joke credit to Daniel Spreadbury)

(for more information about tokens see this part of the online help, and the 2.2 Version History for new tokens added in version 2 onwards.)

… But no {@projectDuration@} token.

A {@layoutDuration@} token would probably be better. In general a project might contain different versions of some flows, etc, so adding up the duration of every flow wouldn’t be very useful.

What’s the joke here? I saw this mentioned in another post, but didn’t get it…

Ah yes, that’s where I recognized the title from. I just couldn’t place it :grin:.
